Hi everyone - I am trying to create a new Resource Collection for Charles Haddon Spurgeon and his works. So in the Collections Menu, I start with 'author:Spurgeon' and get 165 Resources listed below in the Resulting Collection. I can hold Shift and Left-Click multiple entries from there, but when I try to drag them in bulk to the '+ these resources' section, which states 'Drop resources or collections to add here', it only drags and drops one.

Surely there's a better way than manually dragging and dropping hundreds of entries to create a new Resource Collection. I'm somewhat scripting savvy, so I'm happy to script this and distirbute it if there's no way to do this natively in the Logos 9 Desktop App, but I wanted to ask here first.

Here is a picture for reference:

Any ideas?

Chris,

You have already created the collection through the author:spurgeon - that's why it says Resulting Collection 165 Resources. 

The drag and drop space, on the left, is if you want to add any other works from your library to the collection that are not identified by author:spurgeon.

The drag and drop space on the right is to remove any works from below that you do not want as part of the collection

author:Spurgeon creates a dynamic Collection because you are not manually adding resources, and any new book from Spurgeon will be automatically included.

If you want to duplicate a collection, locate it in the Docs menu (as a Resource Collection), right click and select Duplicate. It will be named with a suffix of (2), and you can rename it from the right-click menu.
