Change Parent Title

Every edition is linked to a parent title. If you assigned an edition to an incorrect parent title you can move it to a different parent title.

In the example below the paperback edition of Blue Mountain was accidentally assigned to the title Bring Home the Bacon.

Title: Bring Home the Bacon

  • Edition: Blue Mountain (paperback)
  • Edition: Bring Home the Bacon (paperback)
  • Edition: Bring Home the Bacon (hardcover)


You can move the Blue Mountain (paperback) edition to the title: Blue Mountain by selecting the Change parent title button at the bottom of the edition record window. This will transfer the title record and any associated sales to the new parent title.

Warning: This should only be done if no royalty statements have been generated for the edition being moved to a new parent record.
