Choosing a cover (too quickly)

One very, very minor issue with Calibre. When I'm using the metadata download feature, Calibre looks to find available covers. Often, the cover that I want to use is displayed quickly while Calibre continues to query other sites. I'll click on the cover that I want, but sometimes, before I click on the OK button, Calibre will have found another cover and due to the sorting mechanism (by size, I think) my choice will be "bumped" and a different cover selected. Is there a way to get a user's choice of cover to "stick" even if that cover is moved to a lower priority position in the covers that are found?

Double click on the cover you want.

Dude, what time is it in Mumbai? Shouldn't you be asleep? Anyway, thanks. I don't know why I never tried a double-click. Though I guess it would be nice if the user's selection were locked (so that I could select a cover, tentatively, while Calibre is searching, and then just click OK or enter when I'm ready to move on).

This has bitten me a few, but I just considered it my fault for rushing and let it ride (freeing you for bigger and better features )
