Full text search for partial library

Hello,

I am uncertain if this post belongs to this sub-forum, but I do not know which other sub-forum to use.

Is there a way to index part of the whole library, for example only a virtual library, so I can text search the books that belong only to that part of the whole library? I do not need text search for the whole library but it would be very useful for part of my library.

A workaround might be to use several libraries, but I prefer all my e-books in one library.

I use version 6.2.1.

Thanks for the effort!

No, unfortunately not.

You can use 'restrict searched books' to at least limit searching to a single VL.

You cannot index sub-sections of your library, but you can *search* subsections of it.
