collections appering, books in collection, books also appearing below

Kindle 4, Win 10, latest calibre and plugin versions



I have a minimal Kindle library and have semi-configured the plugin the way I want it.

It is now creating the collection folders, numbering the books and placing the books in the collection folder.
However the books are also appearing just in front of the collection in the root folder of the kindle

Temeraire [1] His Majestys Dragon Naomi Novak
Temeraire [2] Throne of Jade Naomi Novak
Temeraire [2] Black Powder War Naomi Novak
(etc rest of series)
Temeraire (9)

I have the exact same problem as this user, but i fail to understand the instructions and the discussion

(scroll down to Post 122 from crouton)

What is your Kindle's Sort Order set to? It should be "Collections", but any other sort order will list both the books and the collections.

Where do I locate Sort Order? I've looked in the plugin settings, in the kindle menu etc - and i can't find it

Here's the metaboard plugin settings and the collection plugin settings windows

(Edit: Fixed thx to Penny _Dreadful - my kindle was showing by "Most Recent" instead of "By Collection" - i pressed the D button up until i got to the top of the screen, then over until "By Collection" was chosen. Problem solved!)

Sort Order is found on the Kindle not in Calibre, on the screen where you see all your books, the sort option is at the top right corner, just below the menu, I've circled it in the attached screenshot.

Hope this helps!

Perfect! - the problem laid with a changed setting on the Kindle, not Calibre.

FTR, it was on "Most recent" - I pressed the Direction button up until that was highlighted, and switched it to "By Collection".

Problem solved thanks to your advice!

multiple rename patterns

I have a yes/no custom column that represents if a book is in its original language or if it is translated.

I have a rule that creates 2 collections based on the aforementioned column, but the name of the 2 collections created on the kindle ares "yes" and "no". I would like to change the name of the collections to someting like "traslated" / "non-translated".

I know that using the "rename paterns" column in the rule specification allow me to change a value for another, so i can change "yes" for "translated", but i dont know how to specify the rule to change both.

is it posible to do that ? how ?

thanks in advance.

Your Kindle has to be jailbroken.

Firstly, by asking in the plugin thread itself, rather than a four year old thread with zero responses.

And secondly by reading the plugin thread, especially the the first post.

Yes, I have moved your post

correct workflow for loading books and collections?

Hello,

I wanted to check that I have the workflow right, because it is quite convoluted.

I have the plugin installed and the collection manager on my kindle paperwhite 3.

My collections are created using the plugin, based on tag of 'fiction' and 'non-fiction' and imported to the kindle just fine. And I can manually add books to a collection with 'edit kindle collections manually' but I thought I would be able to have books put in a collection based on their tag when I do 'send to kindle'?

Have I got it wrong?

The workflow that I have figured out, but seems overly convoluted is:
  1. import book to Calibre
  2. mark book in collection column.
  3. "Send to Device"
  4. "Create collections on the kindle from calibre"
  5. On the Kindle now, run "Import collections from Calibre"

And then they are in their collections. Is this the best way?

Cheers

after further exploration, this all seems moot.

it is not possible to have epubs in collections, despite KPV Booklet?

Kindle's do not support ePub.

Thanks for replying.

true that epub is not supported natively, but with KPV Booklet and KOReader, my kindle functionally does.

even with natively supported ebooks (mobi, azw) I am struggling with Collections Manager. Not all books are put into collections and I can't figure out why. I suspect it is the kindle application rather than the calibre plugin.

Books duplicating in/out of collection

This has been driving me insane, so hopefully someone can help me out. I have a jailbroken Kindle 3, with custom collections created in Calibre. I send them to the Kindle, and it creates the collections with the correct books in each. However, the books also appear outside the collection as well! I've tried removing and reloading the books on the device, recreated the collections, etc. No luck.

Please tell me someone has come across this before and can offer a solution.

quick thought, are you sure you are not loading epub and mobi/azeb files? if like me, you use calibre to convert epub to azw/epub i have to be selective about the format that i load.

You need to change one of your K3 settings to display just collections. There is one that displays only collections and books not in a collection.
I'm not sure where it is on a K3, but play with your settings.
