Losing my mind

I am sure I read in a thread just a few days ago that I could Alt-left-click on an Author in the Author's column of the library display and select all books by that author. Whatever the command, I did it and it worked - I remember thinking, "how clever of them".

But it doesn't work now... either I have 'mis-remembered' the shortcut, or it is no longer working.... probably the former.

Click on the author in the tag browser to the left. Not in the library view.

You could right click on the author in the library view and do the same thing, see attached. Select the author you want to match and alt-a is the shortcut.

Walt way is good.

Another way (Calibre has many ways )
Right click on one of the books you want, Similar Books ... Author, Series....


(See what I mean about many ways?)

Thanks everyone - it was Alt-A that I had run across before, but there are other great suggestions too. I had been doing the Author/Tag bit, but alt-a is quicker if you are browsing titles - thanks again
