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.
