I think there's an option in the driver to tell it to delete empty shelves.

Yes there is. But, these shelves are not empty. They have books in them from Kobo. Hence the driver won't delete them.

I added a new tag for books I want to read in the near future and it was refusing to sync; it turns out that the tag "Wishlist" is explicitly ignored in the kobo driver (along with "Shortlist"), so I switched to "Favorites" and everything's working fine now.

It might be worth documenting that fact ("Wishlist" and "Shortlist" tags will never be synced) in the OP here to save others time.

EDIT: I added a quick note to that effect to the wiki, feel free to edit it for clarity or better placement.

I'd forgotten about those. "Wishlist" and "Shortlist" are treated differently. Neither will appear in the collections list. But, I'm not sure if Shortlist still does anythig. It was used in older firmware, but I don't think it is used now.

Yeah, I spent a while trying to figure out if I'd messed up my auto-sync settings or something before I started suspecting something else was afoot. Switching from Wishlist to another name fixed it, at which point a quick code dive confirmed the name was being treated specially (and turned up Shortlist as well).

If some kind soul could help a computer illiterate person, I'd be most grateful. Really stuck with getting books from an iMac to a Kobo Glo with column information intact. I get as far as 'Expand Divice Interface (etc)'; I've installed 'Kobo Touch Extended, then when I click on 'Customise plugin', I can't find any reference to 'shelf info'.
I've tried various combinations, but nothing seems to work.
If it's relevant, I can't seem to connect the two devices by USB; the Kobo says it's connected, but calibre seems ignorant of the fact. I'm using the 'Content Server' thing to move books. (And that's another convoluted tangle of events; the Kobo insists on connecting to Rakusen and forgets all about my settings!
Many thanks in advance for any useful information.

Kobo renamed "Shelves" to "Collections" two or three years after they released this feature. This thread was started when they were still called "Shelves". But there is a link in the first post to a Wiki page that is a little more up to date.

The Kobo firmware does not support talking to any other server than the Kobo servers. You can use the browser to connect to a calibre server and download books that way. But, this makes no use of the KoboTouch driver and hence does nothing with collections. If you want to use calibre for collection management, you must connect the device to a PC running calibre using the USB connection.
