Advanced (Maybe?) Virtual Library question?

Good day everyone, question about the Virtual Library.

I love it so far, it's very handy for grouping authors and books that I have yet to read (And even books that I have read.)

But my question is, is there a way to sort the books by Recently Added, and hiding the others?

Like in the <None> folder, I want to view ONLY books that I have JUST added, not books that are already in their own Libraries.

Also, is it possible to hide books that already have their own libraries from the <None> filter?

See the user manual for all the different ways you can do advanced searches.

There is no functionality for showing books not a in a virtual library. The performance for that would be unacceptable.

You could probably make up a search criteria for those files that are not in a virtual library and then use that to identify such books. I guess it could also become another virtual library if so desired.

I must admit I am not sure what the behaviour is when you change the metadata for a book so that it no longer mees the criteria for the virtual library you are currently using. My guess it that the book will remain showing until you do something to change the search criteria, but it is not something I have tried myself.

I just created a Books added within the last month virtual library. Never know when it might come in handy.

This sounds correct. A year back the books used to disappear immediately upon no longer meeting the criteria for the virtual library. Now they seem to hang around until I change to another library.
