Yes. As I prefer LN, FN and & in my Calibre library, I keep a separate library for the books I send to my Kobos (a tenth or so of my whole library at the moment). It can probably be done with metadata plugboards, but I like a separate smaller library for connected devices. I never connect my Kobos to my main library.

No wonder I get such a strange list! Thanks for explaining that.

I'm glad kobo sorts correctly on the books pages.

Why not hide Author(s) and display Author Sort then?

AFAIK you can't display Author Sort in the library list. Do you know a way?

I created a custom column to display the Author Sort. See the image. It can be referred to as #author_sort.

Is it possible to sort by filename in the Kobo Collections UI?

Filename is not a sort option.

If you decide to try it please leave any comments in this thread. I'll use any feedback (or lack thereof) to decide whether to include it in the standard kobopatch pack for future firmwares.

Copy into your copy of nickel.yaml (or wherever you normally store your customised nickel.yaml patches).
Spoiler:
Code:
beta Customise Authors List and Collections List names:
  - Enabled: no
  - Description: Change font style of MyBooks Authors/Collections names
  
  # Part 1: Authors List name
  - FindZlib: "AuthorsListWidget" # qss/AuthorsListWidget.qss
  - ReplaceZlibGroup:
      Replacements:
        # #hTitle Author name label to non-italic
        - Find:    "#hTitle {\n  qproperty-maxNumLines: 1;\n}"
          Replace: "#hTitle {\n  qproperty-maxNumLines:1; font-style:normal;\n}"
  
  # Part 2: Collections List name
  - FindZlib: "GenericListWidget" # qss/GenericListWidget.qss
  - ReplaceZlibGroup:
      Replacements:
        # #hTitle Collection name label to non-italic
        - Find:    "#hTitle {\n  qproperty-maxNumLines: 1;\n}"
          Replace: "#hTitle {\n  qproperty-maxNumLines:1; font-style:normal;\n}"
Thanks for this - the italics in the menus have been bothering me for a while. I just installed it, and it looks great.

It's not a good idea to go back that far without first doing a reset.

Why would you want to go back to 4.24?

oops, i meant 4.34.20097 just before the latest one.

Yes, you can reinstall the same firmware as the one you've patched in order to remove all of the patches.
