This should be easy but I can't figure it out.

I want to look at my library, every book that does NOT contain a certain tag.

What do I put in the search field for this?

I tried NOT tag:stuff

I tried ANDNOT tag:stuff

I tried -tag:stuff

Try "* -mytag:yourtag"

where yourtag is the tag you want to exclude

Try the following:

rating:>=0 ANDNOT tag:stuff

The rating:>0 is the entire library and ANDNOT tag:stuff will exclude from the entire library

Both solutions worked.  So you have to tell it "show me everything" before the exclusion.  Thanks!

Unfortunately, a Unary NOT is not available.
