Split Library in Two

Hi!
I hope I'm not repeating a question, but so far I haven't found what I'm looking for.

I've been using the Fanfictiondownloader plug-in to gather more summer reading. Now my library is a mess. For as many custom columns I create, views and etc, it's too complicated.
I've realized that the only way to get some order is if I create one library for fanfiction and another for books.

Question: Is there a simple way where I can select all my fanfiction and create a different library from the one that I already have?

Thanks for your attention and help.

Yes!

2 steps:
1: On the Library Icon (right-click): Create/Switch: Create an Empty at the new Location: Tick the box: Copy Structure (this keeps your custom columns) ... OK

(now use the Library Icon to switch back to the main)

2: Select books by whatever choice/method you like: Right-click: Copy to Library > Pick your library and option from the list


That easy

Thanks from me as well! I Googled and your reply popped up and did the trick.

I see myself getting lazy these days ... Googling instead of reading the Help Manual.

In this case is probably the better choice. The help manual does not always have alternate uses for features
