Batch Edits for Multiple Titles

For the past week I have been individually changing the category for each of my books from "World History" to "History - World" and "Ancient History" to "History - Ancient", etc. This is such an amazing program with features to satisfy almost any scenario that I knew there had to be an easier way to do this. It was just a matter of finding it. In case any user out there is wanting to do the same thing, the solution is very simple. I guess that most savvy users already employ this technique to enter data in batches.

Select the multiple titles with the category (or any other column) to batch edit. (CTRL + A or Click on the first then hold SHIFT while clicking the last or Click individual titles while holding CTRL) then click the BOOKS menu then EDIT BOOKS.

In a few seconds I am able to do what took me a week before. So much time saved in the future. So much time wasted in the past.

I never cease to be amazed by the features offered in Alfa eBooks Manager. I could not do without it!
