Question Virtual Library based on On Device status?

What search expression should I use to create a Virtual Library with books that are not listed as On Device? So I can add just the new books, without creating duplicates or missing any?

For that matter, it would be useful to have a VL that lists books that are On Device more than once, so the duplicates could be easily found & deleted.

Use the SmartEject plugin. When you go to eject your device it gives you the option of seeing all the books in your library that are not on the device. You can then select them and send them to your device.

I think ondevice is only available when the device is plugged in.

I make use of a custom column of type Yes/No, and the Reading List plugin.

Column Definition
Code:
Lookup name: onkobo
Column heading: On Kobo
Column type: Y/N
List Definition
Code:

List Name: On Kobo
List Type: Auto populated from books on device
When changing this list: Update column for add or remove
Column to update: #onkobo (On Kobo)
Value in column to add/remove: Y
