Suggestions

When there is a date option, can "today's date" be added?

I merge books but the date added to Calibre should be today's date if possible and not the oldest or newest of the books.

Also, If there is a way of instead of taking from the books, to fill a custom column with a user defined specific tag? I have "merged" as the bookstyle of the finished book, but the bookstyles of the individual books are "series" or "serial", or "standalone" which kind of makes having the bookstyle of "merged" not automatically possible.

So, I guess I am asking for the ability to select my own tag for a custom column instead of taking them from the books, and the ability to choose "today's date" instead of taking it from the selected books.

Calibre's Date field is set to today's date for a new merged book.

Only custom date fields have first/last/newest/oldest options. I would consider also adding a 'today/now' option for custom date fields if that's what you mean.

Setting a specific value to a specific custom field is too... specific. EpubMerge presents you with the Edit Metadata dialog when a new merged book is created for exactly that sort of personal data management.

Jimm can answer if the split uses the same setting when splitting, since a split seems like a kind of merge

Yes, custom date columns. I use a "date added" custom column instead of the Calibre date column.

Ok about the edit metadata being too specific.
