I took a stab at making my first script. It's rather simple. If the Imprint is blank, put the Publisher name in if available.

My usual folder structure for comics and Library Organizer is
{<publisher>}\{<imprint>\}{<series>}{ (<volume>)}
. That left me with imprints and series mixed in the publisher folders if the imprint was blank (mostly the case). My solution was to copy the Publisher over to Imprint (since that's essentially what they're doing - using their own name). I got tired of doing it manually.

Select some books, click the icon, and if the Imprint is blank and there's a Publisher set, the Imprint will be set to the Publisher value automatically. You'll get a brief report when the script is done.

GitHub project

GitHub releases page

Version 0.0.1 is attached. I hope to make it a little more user friendly (there is no confirmation of the actions) and fix any bugs that come up when I get the chance. Feel free to file a GitHub issue if you spot a problem. Since this is also my first post here in the forums, if I've broken any rules of decorum or should have made this post differently, please let me know.

One script idea down - More to go. B)

Simple, but pretty useful
