Inside "Edit Metadata" - hotkey for Next Book ?

Hi All
Anyone know of a hotkey combo for going to the next books metadata ?
Want to make sure before I make an enhancement request.
Scenario:
Just added 10 books, want to ensure metadata is OK before downloading extra metadata, covers etc, AND converting.
So I select first book, press e - look at the data - the book's fine and I have to use mouse/mousepad to click the Next button to verify data for next book.
Small thing, but IMHO would be so nice.
TIA,

Edit: Will play with my "mouse" SW and see if I can set more than one "snap to" option.
Running windows, it snaps to Ok button right now. SURPRISE !!!

I second the motion, a hotkey for "next" and "previous" would be very handy.

Thanxx, Mixx

Kovid is doing it. The current source uses ALT-LeftArrow and ALT-RightArrow. I don't know if those will be what is finally released.

There are also some very nice enhancements to the recipe scheduling code that should arrive with the next release.

Hi Starson17
Will probably help a lot users, other than me, since I'm so old school that books are it on my K3.
Anyways, I'm getting too dizzy spinning around the "thank you" pole

Hmmm, could maybe, just maybe, be related to the vacation beers... naaaaw!

Yet again, I'll be spinning whenever the next brilliant idea/implementation is released.
Hope you all have a nice weekend, AND a happy Calibre rease
Cheers, Per

When doing the above mentioned operation, a Save button/hotkey would be so neat !
The Ok does save but....you also close the edit metadata window.
A bit late, I know, but ...

Last time I tested, which is just now, advancing to the next or previous entry also saves the edits to the current entry, so a save button would be somewhat redundant.

Sorry, will have to test again. You could very well be right.

Hi All
Of course yuo're right.
Dont know what happened to my yes/brain

Edit: After "almost successfull" search and replace actions, had a trailing space to the titles, so edit book 1, remove space, update titlesort,next etc. etc. and that didn't "save" the change when I went backwords to check using Alt+Leftarrow.
Hmm, maybe I wasn't that "Stupid" ? Should have mentioned this in my post. Sorry.
