Password Notices Tip Got Facebook? NOTE: The original thread for this plugin can be found here. Since meme is inactive, I took the opportunity of the PyQt5 migration to take over the maintenance of this plugin. This Calibre plugin allows you to manage your Kindle collections, and, on select devices, margins and fonts.
On those devices, you can also use LibrarianSync instead of CM. On those devices, the plugin is useless on its own. If you have an older, non-touch device, this doesn't concern you. The first way to manage your collections with this plugin is to create them automatically on your Kindle using the information in Calibre. This is the best approach if you have lots of books in Calibre, especially if they are already tagged or organized. Spoiler : These are examples of how to customize the plugin to choose which collections are automatically created.
You can test your settings using Preview Collections without any changes being made to your Kindle. Use the "Customize" menu option of the plugin to change what the plugin does. Choose a Calibre field to use for creating collections by selecting "Create" from the down down menu in the field's "Action" column. See the Customization Details section in this post for extensive details on the options available.
Collections for every Author, or every Series, or every Tag, etc. Note that, depending on your device, the sort order will be different.
Spoiler : Set 'Authors' or 'Tags' or any field to 'Create' Enter the name of the author or tag into the 'Include' column. Spoiler : You can select any of your custom columns just like Calibre's built in fields See the Custom Columns section in this post for how to create custom columns - if you want more control of your collections, custom columns are the way to go.
Spoiler : Magazines and newspapers downloaded to the Kindle can be put into collections using this plugin and Calibre even though they can't be put into collections manually on the Kindle.
The plugin will warn you about this the next time you run View Collections. Spoiler : Custom Columns Creating custom columns in Calibre gives you more options when naming your collections with Create Collections.
So instead of just using Author or Tag names as collection names, you can create your own names. They are also needed if you want to use Import Collections. Book titles don't really have anything to do with this plugin or collections, but since its common to modify them using Calibre plugboards to make them more useful on the Kindle, here are some basic examples.
These changes only affect the titles on your Kindle and not the information in Calibre. Spoiler : Create a custom column in Calibre to hold your data. See the Custom Columns section of this post for more details. Select Import Collections then choose the custom column you want to use. Note on Commas and Semicolons: Since collection names are separated by commas, in order to allow commas in collection names like "Lastname, Firstname" the plugin temporarily replaces them with semicolon when you Import collections.
When you use Create Collections to generate collections the ";" will be changed back to a "," on the Kindle. If you want to manually edit the collection name in the Calibre column you will need to use ";" instead of a ",". If you have a semicolon in a collection name on the Kindle and you import it and export it, it will get converted to a comma.
Spoiler : Customizations are used when running Preview or Create Collections. Don't include quotes " in any of the fields unless you need them.
The plugin attempts to sort titles exactly as they'll show up on the Kindle 3 when you use View collections or see them in the detailed report, but this may not always be accurate. Since the PaperWhite, the single quote is the only character assured to be sorted at the top. Uses the python command re. That helps avoid losing items in Kindle only collections with "Preserve existing Kindle-only collections", and saves Collections Manager some time, since that effectively leaves only Calibre managed collections to import.
Since Collections Manager never deletes a collection, and always rebuilds modified collections from scratch, that can save a considerable amount of time by simply not feeding CM stuff that it would only waste time rebuilding with the exact same content.
Note that while this works with LibrarianSync too, it's completely redundant there, since LS does its own optimisation to avoid doing unnecessary work. Kindle Model Should be autodetected on most OSes.
If by chance it's not accurate, set it properly to get accurate feedback from the plugin. You can also use this plugin to manage your collections without entering any data into calibre by selecting Edit Collections to display a simple GUI editor. Spoiler : Before connecting your Kindle to your PC and changing any of these settings, you must press the Home key on the Kindle to go to the Home page or your changes will be ignored.
Justification Control whether the text is left justified ragged right edge or fully justified straight left and right edges. Not all books will be affected by this setting depending on how they were created.
You can change the setting on the Kindle once you run the plugin and if check 'Allow user justification'. Control the amount of space between the edge of the screen and the text. The Kindle allows you to set to a few values fewest, fewer, default , but you can use the plugin to set other margins e. The Kindle does allow you to use a different font for your books without jailbreaking and without installing a font hack.
But you need to follow a few steps so that the plugin can find your font and the Kindle can use your font. Find some fonts to use. The size of the text on your Kindle will depend on the font you use. You can also set the size directly on your Kindle. You can already control this on the Kindle, but you can use this to set more values. There are various other settings that the plugin will allow you to change, but they have no known effect. On those devices, the plugin needs a third-party tool running on your JailBroken device to actually load the new collections.
That implies an extra degree of indirection meaning an extra step. Installing CM and its prerequisites is out of scope here, so if you're not familiar with the process, read the CM thread, and the stickies in the Kindle Dev subforum. Speaking of CM particulars, while this plugin doesn't handle nesting, CM does. Know that an import will never change the nesting of existing items, and that new items will always be flat, and at the root.
With a bit of manual work after an import, you can handle the nesting to your liking yourself, without having to do it all over again on the next import. Spoiler : Setup the plugin as usual, making sure that your Kindle model is accurately detected. The popup should be mentioning Collections Manager, so let's launch it. Once CM has started, tap the Menu button in the top bar. Enter the "Synchronization" menu, and tap "Import collections from Calibre" CM will churn for a while, printing its progress in the status bar at the top.
Once it's done, quit CM by hitting the Home or Prev button. Your collections are here. Much like CM, this is another third-party tool that can be used in tandem with this plugin to handle collections on FW 5. Installing LS and its prerequisites is out of scope here, so if you're not familiar with the process, read the LS thread, and the stickies in the Kindle Dev subforum.
Tap the Update collections from calibre plugin json button. Note that the Rebuild variant of this button deletes every non-empty collections first, which is probably not what you want if you don't have a solid two-way sync in place. LS will churn for a while, printing its progress in the bottom left corner of your screen. Click on the Show buttons in this post to see more details.
Spoiler : Restart your Kindle if you don't see the collections you created or changes you made: On the Kindle press the Home key, then press Menu, select Settings, then press Menu again and select Restart. Spoiler : Version 1.
Version 1. This should speed things up to a certain extent. It's still terrible. Since Collections Manager never deletes a collection, and always rebuilds modified collections from scratch, that can save us a considerable amount of time by simply not feeding CM stuff that it would only waste time rebuilding with the exact same content.
And it sucks. Basically, the only things that we're sure will be in front are the single quote and digits If you find this plugin useful, feel free to say thanks with Paypal goes towards the original developer, meme.
Attached Thumbnails. Reason: 1. Ah, oh right you just posted it. It's very confusing when you sprout these giant posts and then go back and edit them. You've done this before Perils of being a quick noticer of things, I guess. Anyway, great work on porting to Qt5 and, errm, things whatever they may be. Yeah, guilty as charged. Even a random two lines post can be Frankensteined with edits ;p. That said, speaking of the docs, if anything looks outdated or weird, don't hesitate to mention it.
Also, properly documenting the CM workflow would be neat. Mostly talking to myself so I don't forget here. EDIT: Hahaha. Updated the beginning of the post re: K5, managed to miss the big red paragraph.
Time to go to sleep ;p. That, and my commit messages are starting to look crazy.
