What precisely do you mean by "Library entry"? The first term "Library" is used in Lightroom but not in conjunction with "entry". So "can I remove the Library entries that are in my Library's List of each property I've shot from my library?" could mean anything. And what does this mean - "What I'd like is to put all my Finished Jobs into collections, leaving only the Open jobs in my Library, less possible confusion"?
I'm not being awkward, but one could answer your question more helpfully if you would go over it again and use LR terms much more tightly. Maybe add some screenshots to show the problem?
Library entries are the Jobs in my Library. You can see below how I structure my library: Year and Clients name.
then below that the Date of the Job and the Job Name, followed by the Types of Jobs performed, Stills and/or Tours.
The more Jobs I do for a client the longer their Jobs list gets. I've got many clients, some of them have many jobs.
If the Jobs folder is opened, then that job is still being worked on, and a Folder closed is Job Closed or Finished.
I want to put all the Jobs that are closed, not being worked on, in a Collections Folder.
Can I remove the Jobs (not the Clients) from my Library to a Collections Folder from my Library module?
After I've created a Collections Folder for that client.
How will Lightroom react?
So "Can I remove the Jobs folder (not the Clients) from my Lightroom and Aperture folder to a Collections Folder from my Library module after I've created a Collections Set for that client?"
Is that the question? If so, not really. Lightroom's Collections panel is more like Aperture's Projects and their folders, so these are virtual folders. Folders panel is a representation of your Finder folders, which doesn't exist in Aperture, and these are real folders. If you drag a folder from Folders into the Collections, the real folder will still exist and it'll be listed in Folders.
What you might do is create a Closed Jobs folder in the Folders panel, and client folders under it, and drag closed job folders into that folders. So you're doing all of this purely in the Folders panel.
I can understand that. Thanks.
But, since the pictures in the Folders are just Edited Copies of the Originals. Just removing the Edited Images, the originals are still there. Right?
Don't remove anything. The edited pictures you see in the Folders panel are linked to the originals. If you remove the edited images from LR's folders, it asks if you want to delete (destroy) the originals, or just remove these edited pictures from LR - which could easily lose your adjustment work. So just move the files to a Closed Jobs folder, no removing.
Got It! Thanks Much!!
