Custom Columns and Virtual Libraries

At the moment I have three different libraries which I want to consolidate into one big library and use the virtual library function.

My fanfiction library has several custom columns that do not apply to the other libraries so is it possible to have it so that those columns only show up in the virtual library where it would be applicable i.e the gen/slash column?

No, a virtual library does not change the displayed columns, but, you can use the view manager plugin to easily switch between different "views" (sets of columns) of a library.

Have you checked out the View Manager plug-in? I use it to display certain columns for various views. Here is the link for information on the plug-in http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=129014. You can download it within Calibre.
