Question isbn

Hi,
How Can I make Calibre show me only the books in my library that HAVE ISBN , without showing the others?(so that i can download metadata for them)
I'd like to do this without having to select the books one by one.

Can you help?
thank you very much and as always, sorry for my bad english!

Chiara

Try isbn:true in the search bar.

As I read it the Original Poster wants to see all books "that HAVE ISBN", not those without ISBN.

I think it's great to have both examples so folks can try other things with true and false also.
