Copy Option Disappeared

Because of the way I process new books I use the option to copy from one library to another. I updated to 8.70 this morning and found later that this option is no longer in the right-click option menu. For that matter, I can't find anywhere else either. I went through preferences and failed to find anything that might add this option again. A search of this forum failed to show any post relating to this. In addition, I also lost references to plugins in the toolbar and the right-click menu. I am able to rectify this problem by a reinstall. But nothing for the copy option. I am using Lubuntu 12.04. Any ideas of how to add this option?

The only thing I can think of is that somehow you "lost" references to your other libraries. Can you change to the library you want to copy to?

You could add them again.

You lost your Calibre Configuration directory? That is where PI, the Library list and Last used are stored.
Did you use a different User Logon?

Adoby, you hit the nail on the head. I had no references to my other libraries. I added them there is much joy.

theducks, I guess I did lose my config but it beats me as to why. I updated the same way I always do. I am now able to do what I need to do so I am not going to dwell on it. I want to read books not do forensics. I'm just tired of things not working. It's always something.

Thanks to you guys for the quick response.
