Feature Request: Quick Swtich on Main Toolbar or Search Bar

I find that I change and bounce around between my various libraries quite frequently. The ability have direct access to "Quick Switch" either by adding an action button to the Main Toolbar or having a drop down built into the Search Bar would be extremely helpful.

Thank you.

right click the calibre button to get a quick switch list of the five most frequently sued libraries.

Also go to calibre-preferences-toolbars:

Add chose library to the books context menu.

@dmcurator - like you I switch between libraries quite a lot. I have Quick Switch at the top of my Favourites (optional plugin) list, which is at the top of my context menus

The Favourites plugin allows the user to cherry-pick individual options from individual Action items - it's one of the lesser knows calibre gems.

Aside: I don't need to switch as much since the CalibreSpy plugin came into being last year. With it you can concurrently view multiple libraries on a Read-Only basis alongside the regular calibre library manager.
