I have a large number of ebooks with multiple authors, in which the authors are displayed in Calibre's author field as name1;name2 rather than name1 & name2. I would like to make the corrections using search and replace, but can't figure out how to do it. Any help?

  • Welcome to SE-ebooks. I do not know how to write such a script, but my experience is that, even if there is a way, the variety of styles used to list authors is going to make it difficult. For example I have in one book: S. M. Stirling;Alexei & Cory Panshin where Alexei and Cory are two married authors, and Stirling is another author. Furthermore, there seem to be various problems when you want to bring back the change to the original book file (such as epub). See for example ebooks.stackexchange.com/questions/378 – babou Oct 21 '18 at 14:17
