A question of selection

I have a question about selecting multiple tag categories (I'll try to explain what I mean).

For example I have multiple categories (tags) of science fiction, like SciFi[Cyberpunk], SciFi[General], SciFi[Hard] etc.

If I want to select all those SciFi categories I use control en click with left mouse on the tags I want selected. The green crosses appear, but the selection screen is totally empty. No books are shown.

What am I doing wrong?

Before you start clicking look below the tag browser and change it from Match All to Match Any, then do as you described.

Aaah. Thank you so much Dwanthny, you are so helpful.

I had no idea. Thanks for the info, TheDucks. I have not yet felt the need to generate a catalog. I'll have to think about that. I do not like using dots.

Dots do not cause any problems in any way? For example on my sony reader?

Manichean, that is a worthwhile read. Thank you for providing the link.

The article describes a very cool genre system, but I have a question. How is all this translated to my Sony Reader?
Because that is my foremost concern. If my Sony Reader can not use this, I have no real practical use for it. It must be compatible with the Sony Reader Collections. The somewhat cumbersome genre tags I use are compatible. They translate very well to collections on the Sony Reader.

I don't own a Sony, so I can't really say, but I think you can change what metadata fields collections should be built from in the device interface plugin. Go to preferences -> plugins -> device interface plugins and look for the Sony plugin.
