Bug Description

Request Quickview enhancement. Quickview would be more useful to me if it presented data in the same column order as the order of columns in Library View. QV now presents in the order Title, Authors, Series regardless of user's preferred column order. In Library View, I am habituated to the column order Authors, Series, Title. I rarely use QV because the different order of columns is jarring, e.g. cognitively dissonant.

For any plugin developers reading this, also useful would be similar enhancement of optional plugins that present column data, which generally I don't use due to the same issue.

Changing the component for this bug.

Thank you, Kovid and Charles, for such amazing speed of response. And thank you, Charles, for the QV enhancement. It will be interesting to see how many complaints about this change occur. :)


Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.

If you are worried about people not liking the new behavior, you could
possibly change it to allow the user to resort the columns in QV
independently, with the default order being the order from the book
list. However, that is a bit more work, I am fine with the current
