Copy only one format

Is there a way to copy only one format from a selection of books to another library?

I want to put all my epub versions in one new library.
In my main library all formats have been merged to one title per book.

I would just duplicate the library then remove the formats you don't want in it using "Remove all formats from selected books, except", then remove all books with no formats.

That alone won't work; 'Remove all formats, except...' will not remove formats from books that don't have the 'except' format. One of Kovids' buit-in safety measures

But followed by 'not formats:epub" will let the OP delete all books that didn't have an epub in the first place.

Teach me not to post solutions that I haven't actually tried.
