Just a little tip that I discovered over the past few days, and may be useful for some new users
After a few years using CR, your Smartlists will become complex, and you may start to organize by folders.
But, what if you want the same list, in 2 or more different folders?
Some of you will say it's pointless to have 3 copies of the same list, in different folders, but it really depends on how you organize your Library.
So, setting aside the "it's pointless/useless/stupid" argument, here's my situation:

I have a "Batman" list, with all current Batman titles I'm reading. I have 3 copies of this list, one in my "Archive Folder", one in my "DC Comics" folder, and one in my "sync" folder.
Then, DC decides to add 3 new titles to its Batman roster. That, for me, means I have to edit 3 smartlists (and remember which ones have certain criteria, yaddayadda...)

Then I realized I can just create a Smartlist with ALL my criteria, then create 2 "link-lists" (I use the term loosely).

Simply create a new smartlist as such
Name "Batman Current Titles (link)"
In [Batman Current Titles]
Match [All] contains ""
and place it in any other location in the library.
Any change you make to the original Smartlist will now be picked up automatically.
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!
