Can you please explain in layman's language exactly how to get the genre classifications into the tags column. I can remove all the tags but I'm not sure on what to do in order to do a bulk transfer from genres into tags. I'm trying to do exactly what acousticvillage is doing but he/she is obviously more advanced than I with calibre. I am learning but still get confused. A step by step explanation would be very appreciated. Thanks so much.
