Glad I wasn't guessing wrong

Ok, log file attached. Haven't made any changes to the plugin settings in a while. I usually open Calibre once every day or two to sync reading position, etc.

Grabbed a screenshot of settings. (I've tried with and without "Only if newer", no different behavior)

I realized something new this AM. I ran the GR update and noticed that on connect, I'm now not even pulling in an updated reading position from the device.

No factory resets have been done.

Edit to add: Thanks!

The logs tell me it is as I expected. The plugin has lost track of the device and isn't connecting it to the profile. That means it isn't running the fetch as that is device specific. You can see what I mean by going to the devices tab in the plugins configuration when the device is connected. This will show the Kobo Clara HD in the list with a serial number. But, it won't have an icon in the status column, the version column will be empty and the "Add connected device" button will be enabled.

The most common reason for this is a factory reset. But, deleting the file "driveinfo.calibre" from the root directory of the device will also do it. The id for the matching comes from that file. If the file doesn't exist, calibre creates it. The id is randomly generated, so it will change.

As I said in the post I linked, if you only have the one Kobo ereader, the simplest thing to do is to selected "*Any Device" in the configuration for the plugin. If you do have multiple devices, and want to have different configurations for them, you need to update the known devices in Devices tab. And then select it in the profile.

I will have to revisit how this is done in the plugin. It probably should use the serial number, but, there are some issues with that.

So weird. Can guarantee no factory resets, but shrug.

That did it. I looked and saw two Clara's one plugged in, one not. Removing the one and pointing to the other brought everything in line. I'll switch to any since this is my only reader.

I musta have done something somehow.

Much obliged! Glad I know how to trouble shoot now in case i bork it again LOL.

Cheers!

I occasionally have trouble with the custom columns not syncing (though I only have one device, the Aura HD). Switching to the default driver (I use the extended one) and then back usually fixes it. No idea why that is.

Based on all the code involved, that doesn't really makes sense. It is probably really just that calibre is being restarted, or the device is being connected and disconnected.

Okay, I did this part (above).

This has the effect of when I update the reading stats (I find the easiest way for ME at least) is to sort the Library view by the On Device field, select all the books shown as being on the Kobo and then select the plugin's option to store reading location, the Finished column gets set to the word Finished for all books at 100% read.

The next time I attach the device and the automatic metadata management runs, all the books I have finished now appear on a new shelf Finished.
1. What do you mean you " added the field #finished to my shelf definitions"?
2. How can I have not just a special column with the read status, but also corresponding tags (finished, in-progress/reading)?

In the driver configuration, for collections (which used to be called shelves), @PeterT has added the column "#finished". This will create a collections for each value in the column.

These are separate actions. The #finished column is automatically populated. You will need to manually add the tag you want. I semi-automate this using the Reading List plugin. I have a status column whose value gets changed when I move the book between my "ToRead", "Reading" and "Read" lists.
