Unhappy Calibre Shelves in KOReader

Dear All,
this is my first post (and thread) in this awesome forum.
I searched on the various discussions, but I couldn't find a satisfactory answer.
I used (with nickel) to organize my books in shelves with calibre.
Now I'm using KOReader because of its superiority in terms of features and pdf reading capabilities, and I'm currently browsing my books with the builtin file manager.
I would like to access the calibre shelves using KOReader but I couldn't find an appropriate option... Is this calibre feature supported in KOReader?

P.S.
I found "Browser series" and "browser tags" in the file manager menu, but they don't show the shelves I created...

Are the shelves calibre creates and manages in the stock Kobo database included in the "metadata.calibre" as tags? Perhaps you could make a tag in calibre and apply it to the books in one of your shelves and delete then resend the books to your device, to see if the tag appears in KOReader.

Another approach might be to have calibre add a code to the book/file name, that KOReader's "Find file" function could use. You could have it put at the end of the name and would only show in the File Manager listings if you have set the font size real low, but would work for the search. ( I never figured out how calibre and its "Plugboards" work to impact the names. You might ask over at the calibre forum.)

Luck;
Ken

So, I suppose there is not direct way to import shelves in koreader. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions, they seem feasible workarounds.
