Rie142, CWatkinsNash - this might fix your issues, please give it a try. Thanks for asking about this - I really need people to report any issues with their specific environments as I'm more than happy to work on fixing them.
Yes, yes it did fix my issues. Thank you!! So much happiness in that little zip file. And I must say, the preview feature, though it's been here for a few iterations of the plugin, is brilliant. It's obviously good so people can see changes before they commit to them, but it's also a "Debug Lite". Very helpful.

You're quite welcome. I'm happy to offer what little help I can give.

Version 1.3.3 should skip over any tags/columns in books that aren't in Calibre, which it should have done from the beginning.
That explains everything perfectly and it is now working as you describe. Again, thank you!

Yes, and it seems more extreme than it is because of the way it runs separate processes. The GUI takes a backseat while the jobs start running and there's no immediate visual feedback about what's going on. When I first started using calibre, I had to train myself to leave it alone till it becomes responsive again. It really does look like it's crashing sometimes, but I've accepted that it wants to be left alone when it's busy. I can relate.
