Import Empty books as records only

Hello,

I'm new so apologies if this is a dumb question.

I have two Calibre libraries, the first is a conventional collection of e-books that I own, no problem importing them.

The second is a "library" of empty books which I use as a catalogue of books that I hold other than in Calibre, usual physical items. I had hoped to use Calibre Companion as a portable catalogue, but can find no way to import the records of empty books. Have I missed something or hoped for too much.


Many thanks,

Simply add a blank txt file to each empty book record. Then transfer them to CC.
