I use Airtable to organize my sewing patterns and projects. I have too many patterns and want to create a new table that only has my patterns that are printed (which is already in the record). I can’t seem to find a way to copy the entire record if it is “printed”. Any advice? Thanks.

Instead of copying the entire record, try creating a single record and linking it to the record you'd like to copy instead.  You can then create lookup fields to see the data you want

May I know what issues you faced while creating new filtered views for this?  They seem ideal for your scenario if I'm understanding it right

You can either use TheTimeSavingCo's solution above and create a linked record, which would entail some manual interaction, or you can set up an automation that triggers when records in your current table matches the conditions (printed in a select field for example). You can then use the create record action, and populate it with the information from the record that triggered the automation, to create new records in a different table.
