The other side of this is the ereader. Kobo ereaders will get the metadata from epubs and kepubs. But, I don't think they read CBR or CBZ.
Thank you.It seems I have to plug-unplug-plug-unplug all the time.

Is there a way to create the shelves with custom prefixes?
Right now I only use series but would also like to use others like tags.

It would be nice if Serie shelves could start with Series: and tag shelves with Tags:

I would make use of an additional custom column; maybe something like

KoboSeries
Computed based on other columns
{series:|Series:|}

and then use #KoboSeries in your shelf rather than Series

First of all, thank you for your amazing plugin! And sorry for my bad english, it's not my first language.

I have a problem with Collections auto-creating. I'll try to describe how I want it to work.
When I'm uploading the books which are the part of any collection, I want to have 2 separate bookshelves (collections) on my Kobo Aura ONE. 1st is 'Author Name' (for example, "Corey, James S.A.") and 2nd is 'Author Name - Series Name' ("Corey, James S.A. - The Expanse").

To achieve this goal I created a new column with following settings:

Column built from other columns, behaves like tags.
{author_sort}{series:| - |}
I named it "authorseries". In Library interface it gives me exactly what I wanted:

Now to the plugin configuration:

And here is the problem. #authorseries takes 'author_sort' which contains a comma, so the plugin think the comma should separate the format "author_last_name; comma; author_first_name; space; hyphen; space; series_name" into 2 bookshelves:
1. author_last_name
(comma works as separator)
2. author_first_name; space; hyphen; space; series_name

Like this:

And on device:

I hope I described my problem good enough. Is there any way to achieve my goal? Maybe you can use ";" instead of "," as a separator? Or any other way?

Anyway, thanks for your time!

EDIT
Damn! I just fixed it by changing "Column built from other columns, behaves like tags." to "Column built from other columns".

I'll leave it here in case someone will encounter my problem. Sorry for disturbing!
