Hi,

how can I import a collection from a LR cataloge into another LR cataloge? I only find the option to import folders, but not collections. I want to create a new cataloge and get images about one topic from different cataloges into the new one. 

Many thanks for helping!

In summary the method is-

1) (from A catalog)  Right-Click the selected Collection to Export this Collection as a Catalog   >  a temporary 'Transfer' Catalog.

2) (In the B catalog) File > Import from another Catalog.  Select the 'Transfer' Catalog to Import.

 

The method is similar to that described in this blog article from Victoria Bampton-

RESTORE PARTIAL from backup catalog?

Or better yet, use one catalog from now on. Then importing something from another catalog isn't necessary.
