Oops. How to un-merge

So I am merging two book records together (Different formats of the same tittle)

Then... OOps, I realized that I miss-clicked and merged two different titles.

OK so I have two different titles in different formats (fortunately) Now I want to un-merge the two books back into separate records...

Can this be done in Calibre? I don't see a way off hand, other than to go into the files and do it manually. (copy 2nd format out of library and re-add the book to create a new record. Then delete the 2nd format in Calibre)

If I could copy a record, (make a duplicate) that would work, but as I said I don't see a way to do it.

You have the idea.
If you use Save To.. calibre will try and update the (wrong) metadata in the book.


Select the book
Tap O
Now copy the format off to a safe place.
Close the file browser.Open the Metadata editor and selct the bad format and use the recycle icon (Del) OK

Now add the saved format back, normally
