The top line can be affected by changing the reading status of the books, but, it changes again as soon as you open or finish another book.
Ok. Thank you.

The "Add connected device" button should be enabled. Click that and add it. Then delete the existing one and make sure the device is selected on the first page.

Or, for simplicity, and if this is your only Kobo device, use the "Any device" option on the first page. That should solve it.


The job isn't there. It is called "Storing reading positions for x books".
That did it, thanks! I forgot I had it replaced under warranty, so new device, serial, etc.

Kobo Utilities - Transfer 'Read Status' to Kobo

I have the Kobo Utilities plugin, and am able to get the 'read status' into my Calibre library from my Kobo without any problems, but I can't seem to get it to add a 'read status' back onto my Kobo if I add a 'read' book back onto my Kobo.

Is there a different plugin I need for that option?

The do the status restore, select the books you want to do this for and choose the "Store/Restore current bookmark" option in the plugins menu. Then set the options as needed. That will set the status, the last read date and reading position.

If you just want to mark the books as read, you can use the "Update metadata in device library" function. The options for reading status are at the bottom of the dialog.

Which means your calibre library has 6 books with the author as "A.B. Person" and 15 with the author as "AB Person". Or maybe you have "A. B. Person" (which is the way calibre generally does it if the when downloading metadata) and "A B Person". Or some combination of all these.

Exactly right. When I copied the books onto my Clara, Calibre showed 6 books as "A.B. Person" and 15 as "A B Person" (with spaces).

Quote:
All this sounds like it is working correctly. But, it doesn't sound like you fixed the metadata in the calibre library. If these books are all by the same author, select them in calibre, click the button to edit the metadata and the bulk metadata editor will open. There you can fix the common metadata such as the author and author sort. Then do the update to the device.
(e.a.)

As I stated in my initial post, this is exactly what I did. As soon as I realised my mistake, and before I did anything else, I did a bulk metadata fix. All 21 books subsequently showed (and still do) "A.B. Person" in Calibre. Thus, when I made all the attempts mentioned in the earlier threads, the metadata for the books in the Calibre library was (and is) in the format I wished, all 21 the same.


EDIT: I really AM too stupid to live! I was doing all this without selecting the books - My sincere apologies for having taken up your valuable time. I shall slink off and attempt to acquire sentience.

Would it be possible to use this to update ToC when pushing an updated version of the book? I saw your @davidfor regarding another user that ToC is only processed when book is imported.

The plugin doesn't have that function. There are enough complications in doing it that, at this point, I'm not that interested in doing it. Plus the workaround is easy in most circumstances.

The workaround is:
- Fetch the reading status for the book.
- Remove the book. Can be done using calibre.
- Send the new copy.
- Disconnect and let the device import the update.
- Connect and send the reading status to the device.

If you haven't opened the book, just delete and resend it. Or turn off the "Do not treat replacements as new books" option in the driver if you don't care about the status at all.
