Question Library Creation Question(s)

I would like to split my current Library into two or three: One with all of the books currently on my Kindle, and the other with the books that are read and/or archived. (If creating the archived library is easy enough, then I will create a third one for the books I've already read).

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to choose "Use Existing Library at a New Location", or if I'm supposed to create an empty Library.

I'm also not clear on how to move/switch individual books between the two (or three).

Help/clarification, greatly appreciated.

Create your 'empty' Libraries
Note: there is a setting in Preferences: Tweaks 'Control how tags...' when Copying to Libraries


select Books to "MOVE" to a Single Library (the books don't have to be done all at the same time)
Right click: Copy To Library (there are 2 choices to pick from, for each existing library available).
Wait

I did not see that particular tweak under preferences, BUT, I was able to create both additional Libraries and move the books accordingly!

Thank you for your help!

Yes, of course I did. I apparently, however, looked right over it - twice. I got it this time.

Thank you, again.
