Kindle App confused by books with the same title #60
I have two books in my Calibre library with the same title, but different authors. Both the books are called "Conqueror"; one is written by Stephen Baxter, the other by S.M. Stirling. When I try to send them to the Kindle App on my iPad Mini, the following sequence of events occurs:
This is absolutely reproducible - the first book to be sent appears in the library; the second overwrites it, but without altering the library entry in the Kindle App (so you see the wrong book when you open it).
I suspect that what's happening is that the plug-in is simply using the book's title as the filename, so the first book is being overwritten by the second. The "Send to Device" template in "Preferences" does not appear to be being honoured.
I've worked around the issue by slightly changing the title of one of the two books, but if this could be fixed (eg by using the filename template specified in "Send to Device", it would be useful.
