Viewing tag browser items for selcted books

Is there a way of creating a temporary virtual library by just selecting books?

I would like to see the tags for selected books in the browser without seeing every other tag for every other book, and it seems that the only way to do it short of copying them to another library, is to isolate them and create a virtual library. I just don't know how to create a library by whatever books are selected, is that possible?

Instead of "current search" how about adding "current selection"

Job Spy > Tools that are Search Related > Virtual Library Helper - Create Search Criteria Using Selected Book IDs

Then you can copy and paste that search into a new VL.

Job Spy has so many options that I often forget what's all in there.

Create a virtual library with the search expression marked:true

Then mark all selected books, and switch to that virtual library.
