I was hoping it would be something like that, however does not work for me.


I marked book line 19, 21, 23 (ctrl m) (19 (blue), 21 and 23 (green))

On drop down menu for Mark Books ...

Show marked books (3) ctrl + shift + m

Right click + Ctrl-A on above line in drop down does nothing

Right click + Ctrl-A on 19, 21, 23 or any book line number for that matter selects all the books, not just the marked ones.

Of course holding down ctrl and clicking 21, 23 will select them (blue), thats
the procedure how I selected the 130+ originally.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong???

Thanks!

I don't use the mouse, I use the following keyboard shortcuts

I marked some books with Ctrl+M

I searched for (Showed) marked books with Ctrl+Shift+M, and selected them all with Ctrl+A.

Now I can action the three books -- send, save, remove, add a tag, etc, etc.

To Clear the push pin marks I would use Alt+Shift+M

Dosen't work for me. When you selected the 1st book the line turned blue. The next book both were blue. When they are blue (even if seperate) you can do bulk operations.

My problem is when I do a ctrl m to select a book it gets pinned and turns blue.
The next book, same thing, except first book turns green (only marked and pinned, not selected). Even if I do a ctrl shift M, only the top pinned book is blue, rest green.

A ctrl a at this point will turn entire library blue (not what I want ).

So still at this point the only way i can get all pinned items to turn blue is to individually ctrl click them.

Anyway, thanks for trying.

BTW my platform is latest Windows 10. Maybe the problem?

No, W10 is not the problem
Ctrl-A SELECTS EVERYTHING in the view.
Both BR's and my methods work if you follow all the instructions given.

Selecting all marked items - use Filter/Highlight

Hi FDLucko.
Your instincts are right that there is a simple approach that groups the marked entries.
A simple approach is to use the FILTER/HIGHLIGHT icon (three horizontal lines) which for me is in the top right corner beside the search bar/icon. Your icon is probably set to FILTER but if you click it once it will change to HIGHLIGHT which displays a red slash line through the horizontal lines icon.
In HIGHLIGHT mode, only your Quality Check selections are displayed and you can then <shift> select all items to "edit metadata in bulk".

IIRC The Quick Toggle button is hidden by Default. Preferences: Searching: to change

Yup, that works perfectly for me.

Thanks all, for all your help.

Hi,

Is there a way to check for box sets so I can use the EpubSplit plugin to split the box sets into individual books? If there isn't, could I please request this feature? Is it possible to do this? If not, is there another way to identify box sets apart from going through them and finding them manually...

How do you know that it is a box set, Inukami? I mean, the plugin can apply a criteria for locating them and, as far as I know, there is no data that says: "omnibus / box set", aside of the name, if you're lucky.

That is why I'm asking. As they may have another identifier that I don't know about ...apart from just searching in the title for "box set".

Count Pages Plugin: pages
( Size matters )

Boxed sets, omnibus usually have page counts well above a single of a similar genre .
OTOH filesize could just be fonts or more images (although, with the Quality check PI, you can search (and later manually apply a tag) for embedded fonts, big images

I tried this plugin and found some issues in my epubs. So how am I supposed to continue? I mean : it's great to know that an epub has a missing manifest file or incorrect css, but how do I correct these errors? Any advice is welcome...
