Tap Mapping comma as semi-colon as of 2.40- did not on 2.39
As of the Tag Mapping of imported book, using commas worked just find to map multiple tags to one.
Since the 2.40 update a week later adding Tag Mapping as a Tool on existing entries, the comma now "maps" as a semicolon creating a single tag. It was far better before.
In fact, using the Tag Mapper tool on existing books, it has now changed a LOT of my books because of the setup.
3 Examples (of many),
as of 2.39
TAG -----> Change to: (the comma created separate tags)
Historical Fiction -----> Historical, FICTION
steampunk ----> Fantasy/
Biology -----> Biology, SCIENCE
These became the new tags, 6 total new, covering all categories to which I wanted the original to map.
has Biology and SCIENCE -----> Biology;SCIENCE and SCIENCE
has Historical and FICTION -----> Historical;FICTION and FICTION
has OR imports steampunk OR Steampunk ------> Fantasy/
Before posting this, I created a test book with tags as noted under NOW 2.40 and imported it. It did import with the semicolon so this had to be an effect of the 2.40 update since it did not do that prior. I've been noticing it and thinking I lost my mind. I kept going back to Tag Mapping in both locations and retyping to insure the comma was not a semicolon until I figured this out with mass mapping jobs and my existing tags changing to have/add semicolon tags as noted.
Please, oh, please, oh, please fix this back.
Discovering the ability to change one tag to multiple tags was only found by a test but was perfect !
I wish I'd known the Tag Mapper tool was coming a week later. It was going to be a suggestion, but it showed up a week later after I did A LOT of work! But still I'm glad it's there.
I have some mapping suggestions, but I will post them separately under a specific heading so as not to mix issues with requests. Mapping is one of the BEST tools to be added to Calibre. I always wondered why the Goodread tag mapping feature wasn't expanded in such a manner. In fact, that will be a suggestion in a separate listing. Why not allow the Tag Mapper to overrule all metadata sources when downloading them as can be done with the Goodreads source (which has unique mapping fields)?
