Exports: Saving umlauts and others (…, •)

Hello,

i know it's a silly question, but …

Is there any way to save umlauts and special characters by using export to (folder)?

Would be nice.

Thanks for all the hard work on calibre during the years!!

@karlheinzbehr - 'silly' questions deserve straight forward answers

The Save to Disk feature will create folders and files using metadata values specified in the Preferences->Save to Disk->Save template. So if the metadata Title and Authors etc have umlauts and other diacritics that's what you'll see in the Saved (Exported) folder and file names.

So the template {authors} - {title} might yield 'Günter Grass - Örtlich betäubt.epub' as a file name.

FYI - The folder and file names within the library use normalised to ASCII in order to cope with the vagaries of the different languages, operating and file systems with which calibre has to interoperate. Feel free to ignore the folder and file names within the library - at best they're indicative and to all intents and purposes they're meaningless if your library is in a non Latin language - Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Hindu, Thai etc

BR

Dont forget to make sure that

Preferences->Saving books to disk->Convert non-English characters to English quivalents is not enabled.

Thank you Kovid, your reply was the right one for me. I overlooked the checkbox, or i didn't catch on the meaning of it. *ggg*

Great work
