Hi Phil, when they initially disappeared from the main toolbar, I re-added them but didn't realise there was the separate option for the main toolbar when device is connected ��
now resolved thanks!

ok... now kobo utilities is accessible again, I've used it to pull the shelves / collections on the device

fyi one of the collections on the device is excluded from being automatically amended when the device is connected

I wanted to start this collection again from scratch, as there were nearly 200 books in it I deleted the collection on the device, then re-created it. on the device the books previously in the collection no longer show in the re-created collection. however when I pull the shelves from the device all the old books are still listed in calibre as being in that collection.

(fyi if I add a book to the re-created collection on the device, pull the shelves, then subsequently manually delete from the collection on the device and re-pull shelves it updates correctly in calibre.)

does anyone have an idea how to resolve? I don't want these old books noted in calibre as being part of this collection.

TIA x

The shelf fetch only makes changes to books that are currently on shelves. It gets the list of books that are on shelves on the device and updates the column in the library with those values. You should probably clear the column from all books before doing the getting the shelf list.

Exactly what you should do depends on what you are actually doing. The get collections function was not really intended for frequent use. The main use case was to get the collections from the device after some sort of disaster in the calibre library. When that happened, the user could get the collections from the device and use that to update the columns that they use to do the collection management. Then they would turn on the collection management and continue from there.

This will be in the next calibre release. I will add this to the plugin sometime soon.
Thank you! I really appreciate all the work you put in, and the attention you pay to requests in this thread.

Howdy.
I doubt this is an issue with KoboUtilities itself, but I'm not really sure where to ask. I notice that when I send a book to my Kobo Forma via Calibre, it doesn't have the series info present after I disconnect the device. I need to reconnect/disconnect again before series info shows up. Is this normal behaviour, or am I missing an option somewhere to fix this?

I think it's normal. I also have to plug in a second time to get my custom subtitles/collections to update on the device.

That is how it works. The device can read some metadata. That doesn't include the series info. So, the driver can update the metadata in the database on the the device. But, it can only do that once the book has been imported and added to the database. Hence the driver updates the database with any differences between the library and the device each time it is connected.

So, send the books to the device, eject and let them get imported and then connect again.

That's normal behaviour. Calibre can only update the entry in the Kobo database when it's already there, and it gets created only when your Kobo imports the book after the first eject. Subtitles are the same way.

One of our resident Kobo wizards (@geek1011) has written a small library to set the series & subtitle info on first import, so that the reconnect is no longer neccessary: NickelSeries

thank you for the reply!

just a quick note to advise I deleted the shelf in the kobo collections column in calibre and this fixed the issue (even when I pulled shelves again to test it didn't re-pull the old shelf/collection info against the books in question).
