A senior moment ? Fix to procedure
I know this is an old procedure, and I don't know if I'm the only one in the whole wide universe still using it
From Calibre version 1.18 ( I think) and forward, the procedure is still valid, BUT step 3 (select all found books in step2) I found that I had to use key-combo Ctrl+Alt+A and not Ctrl+A as I "think" i used to do. Using Windows here.
The rest should work OK. It does here.
I know this is an old procedure that Chaley helped me with, but just in case some "entity" in the universe beside me uses this procedure, this is what I found.

@pchrist7 - I don't use that specific procedure, but Ctrl/a is normally a 'work everywhere kb shortcut', it does a select all here
And so does Ctrl/Alt/a - I didn't know that, I might give it another job
It's possible something/someone has assigned Ctrl/a to something else. Open the ...\calibre\shortcuts\main.json file in notepad or similar and search for Ctrl+A if its found then do not change that file directly, use Preferences-> Keyboard.
It's also possible that Ctrl/A has been 'hijacked' within windows - try doing a Ctrl/a in windows explorer, make sure you're in a location with more than one thing in it.
