Question How to change series index number format sent to device?

In my library I have a custom column/color for series that do not (by choice) display leading zeros in the series. However, the series info that is being sent to my devices always displays leading zeros in the metadata. Where and how can I change this to eliminate the leading zeros?


Thank you!


Edit: I suspect the solution lies somewhere in "Tweaks" but haven't a clue how to accomplish the task.

Thank you!
The template for the Plugboard or filename (depends on your device, which is shown)
Code:
The series
The series number. To get leading zeros use {series_index:0>3s} or {series_index:>3s} for leading spaces

Aha! I was looking in all the wrong places, Preferences> sending books to devices. When looking at plugboards I have the following:
{series:|| }{series_index:0>2s|[|] - }{title}

If I understand correctly, I would "edit existing plugboard" as follows:

{series:|| }{series_index:>2s|[|] - }{title}

Would this be correct?

I think so. Try it. You can always put it back and send again.
BTW I use 5.2 since I have (many) fractional series : 03.05 - title

Thank you so much! I do not understand what "5.2" references. I, too, have some fractional series, but I cannot recall if xx.x has actually transferred to the devices. I daresay not!

5 places with 2 to the right of the decimal. the decimal counts as a place
