I have a list in this form "author - title (book-no)" eg "Hilary Mantel - Bring Up the Bodies (97)"

By definition all the books in the list are in the library. I'm OK with getting them matched up - there are a few mismatches due to 'odd' titles etc but they're easily resolved.

When I get to the dialogue with the Edit Metadata button all I see is Title and Author.

What I want to do is to update a yes/no custom column (Fix Cover) on the books in the list to 'Yes', I don't care what the current value is (its probably undefined) so I don't want it to play any role in the matching process

How can I do that?

One idea I had was to have an option to Mark the Books a'la the Temp Marker plug in, then I can do whatever I want in regular Calibre bulk metadata edit

BTW this plug is a 'work of art'
