DxDatabook tables and schematic partitions - should they match?

I am preparing to use DxDatabook to take advantage of its features going forward.   All of our current designs have symbols in two large partitions (named FC and USL).    However, I’d like DxDatabook to be better organized (i.e. resistors, capacitors, diodes, ICs, etc)


My question is multi-part:


Can several DxDatabook libraries point back into one or two partitions?  i.e. can I have Resistors, Capacitors, ICs, all pointing back into the USL partition?


More importantly – can I create new partitions and simply move copies of the existing symbols into the new partitions?   What will that do to existing schematics?  Can I simply adjust the settings to point to the new partitions?


My first inclination is to create new partitions that are organized  and simply move the existing symbols into them, but I do not know the consequences for existing schematic designs.


Thanks in advance for suggestions and guidance!
