    Does anyone know if there is a way to move files you have saved in one library to another?

    Yeah, on the top bar in iBook, touch collections and create a new collection. Then touch edit on upper right of top bar and select a book (a checkmark will appear) then touch move on the upper left of the top bar and choose the collection you want to move it into. Let us know how you fare.

    Cheers, Dan

    Most of my saved "books" are PDF's. Do they have to stay in the PDF collections?

    As it won't let me get the check mark like when I delete in the past.

    It looks like the PDF files in the PDF collections can be handled and moved in the same way as other books. I just went through some of the motions - selecting PDF collection, a PDF in it, and getting a check mark when in its EDIT mode. I didn't try to make another PDF Collection sub-directory and actually move it, as I didn't want to create something for a trial that I couldn't then undo or take away. But it looks like what you want to do with the PDF is just the same as I know can be done with the books category - being able to create another "holder" (like my "finished" one) and move into it.

    Is that your idea?

    PDFs and Books automatically show up in the default collections, but they can be moved anywhere you want them, including in and out of the default collections. You can mix and match anything you want in any collection.
