But, you can add identifiers to the right-click menu of the button.

Hmm, you can remove an identifier in the book details pane. Maybe it should also allow adding one.

I use the same process as you using the metadata edit dialogue, although I can't add identifiers to the menu of the button, is there a plugin? or is this feature can be made into a plugin?

Thanks for telling me the identifier in the book detals pane, I will request for a feature to allow adding identifiers.

You can copy a set of column values from one book to another using ctrl+c and ctrl+v, there's a tweak to define which columns are copied. You can see what your doing in context of other books, e.g. if it's book in series you might want start by doing a search for that series.

As far as I know the only column that can't be entered via the book list cells is Identifiers. That for me was a reason to not use custom identifiers to create links -- and I also didn't like my custom links masquerading as book store links

Too bad there is no easy way to add identifiers. I will try requesting a feature for adding on the book panel

Thank you for sharing View manager, I will install it, looks like I can use it to hide columns I don't need to know when choosing a book to read.

Right-clicking on the identifier paste button should show a menu with "Edit list of prefixes" at the top and several prefixes under it. Clicking the first item will open a dialog where you can change which prefixes are listed on the menu.

If that isn't there, then update calibre. I don't remember exactly when this was added, but it was at least six months ago.

I'm wondering if there can be a way to tweak the Calibre Amazon metadata to download the asin identifiers instead of isbn. Also, would really like to see the tags go into a genre column. I can't find the Amazon info in the Calibre files (other than the basic .py that says what fields to download).

Hello all
It would be very helpfull for french user of Calibre to get a bedetheque scraper, www.bedetheque.com is one of the most fullfilled database for BD, comics in french. It's something which exist on ComicRack (here) and be very usefull on Calibre to get complete metadatas in french

Smile Plugin for searching specific words within books

Hi everybody,

I would like to know if there is any plugin available in Calibre to perform searches for specific text within all books. I am assuming this functionality is still not included by default in Calibre, so any plugin performing this would be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Pet

QualityCheck allows searching EPUB files.

MultiColumnSearch allows searching TXT files and has options to export results to custom columns.

I think there might be another plugin but iirc, it's Linux only.

Thanks for the quick answer. What about searching into PDF documents?

Sincerely,

The MCS plug-in has many different kinds of searches for many different scenarios. MultiColumnSearch's full-text search capabilities require you to use Calibre's conversion features to convert any ebook format(s) you want to search to a TXT format. Convert one time, search endlessly. The conversion to a simple .txt file is very fast, and the resulting .txt files are very small. If you use the MCS full-text search, then you can also use the MCS word-index search function.

Or, you could install the Drop Search Results plug-in then drag-and-drop full-text search results (i.e., Calibre book paths created by applications such as Agent Ransack) onto the DSR icon.

What search tools you use are very dependent on what type of searches you perform, how often, and for what quantity of ebooks. There is no single "correct" answer. Your choice(s) to make.

I use Windows Search and the DSR plugin. IMO learning the the basics of MS's Advanced Query Syntax is well worth the effort - e.g. type:pdf counter will limit the search for "counter" to PDFs. I use Adobe's PDF iFilter, even though i don't use Acrobat.

I suggest you also ask in the MR Forum Français->Software forum

FWIW : most plugins are written by someone who has the need.
