Bug Description


there is problem with adding books from multiple subdirectories, with "one book per directory".

Up to version 2.9 (including) adding books function also added books without formats, reading just opf file in directory
In version 2.10 the behavior changed and opf was read but also added as extra format
From version 2.11 it changed, opf is not added as extra format, but the books without formats are not added at all. ( bug 1392864)

Could you please restore functionality from version 2.9 where also books without formats were added? The effect was, that when I had folder which contain only opf and jpg files, the empty book was created, its tags were added from opf and cover from jpg.

Version 2.11 degraded adding book functionality a lot. In 2.10 at least I could remove .opf formats via "remove files of specific format".

Thank you very much.
