Merging collections

This discussion was created from comments split from: Merging two citations files to use in one document.
  • Hi,

    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.

    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!

  • I have the same question!! can someone please reply to this? I have about 5 folders that I wish to join.
  • Pretty sure this isn't the same question, so splitting this off.

    You seem to have quoted my answer from another thread. Can you explain how that doesn't answer your question?
