Perhaps I'm missing something, or maybe I'm just too used to Calibre Companion.

I was hoping this plugin would be bi-directional. In other words, once I put books on my reader, I expected that changes would be reflected in Calibre the next time I synced the device.

To make that a little clearer: my normal usage is to keep a "Current Reading List" in Calibre. I've set up the plugin so that anything on that list also gets added to a "Current Reading List" collection on the device when I add or update the book via the plugin. Then, when I finish the book, I remove it from the reader's collection. I'd like to have the removal reflected in Calibre automatically, so the books drop off the Calibre list at the next sync.

Have I misunderstood the functionality, or is there something I've misconfigured?

(Don't get me wrong: I'm not complaining, even if the transfer only goes one way. The plugin is still very useful and I'll just adjust my usage patterns a bit.)

I don't think any of the device drivers work like that. This, or the KoboTouch driver, definitely do not. And, they don't make any updates to your library when the device is connected. The books on the device will be matched to the books in the library and shown in the device list, but nothing else.

Or, did you mean to post this in the Reading List plugin thread? That can automatically send books to a device. And update a list based on the device.

I was completely unaware of the Reading List plugin. Sounds like exactly what I need. Thank you!

Does anyone know why I cannot find this plugin through Calibre's "Plugins" pane? I just did a fresh install of Calibre on a new computer and this plugin was the first thing I wanted to get setup. If I type in Kobo or KoboTouchExtended, it's just not in the search results.How do I install it now?

Thanks!

I don't see it.



I've also searched for "extended" and "kobo" but it's not there. So weird.

You need to install it before you can configure it - go into Get New Plugins

Oh boy... it's been a while. Thank you! This is one of the things about calibre that's so confusing at times. Thanks again.
