Merging collections


I'm new to working with zotero. I'm trying to manage citations from different databases by creating collections. However, when I import a new search from a database it creates another collection. While I can move the new collection and enter as a subcollection under a broader collection group, I mostly just want a single collection for each group. Is there a way to merge subcollections with a broader collection group to get a single collection.

For example, I have:

1. Database (collection)
a. database search 1 (sub-collection)
b. database search 2 (sub-collection)

And I want:

1. Database (collection)
a. database search 1+2

Or just:

1. Database (collection = sub 1 + sub 2)

Please let me know how I can do this. Thanks so much for the help!

  • You can just drag items from one collection to another.
  • Hi,

    Thanks so much! This was helpful. However, what if I have multiple items. Is it possible to select all at once and drag them to a folder. Please let me know!
