I have selected a small number of dated folders that are inside an existing catalog, and am trying to export then to a new catalog by right clicking and using the "Export this folder as a catalog" command.

However when I do this only ONE of the highlighted folders gets copied to a new folder.

Any ideas how to grab and export a group of folders together please??



Thanks in advance

You export the contents of the selected folders, i.e. after you've selected the folders that you want to include in the catalog export, do Ctrl+A to select all the photos in those folders. Then do File>Export as Catalog and you'll get the result that you want (and the folder structure will be maintained).
