Calibre Companion- Tags

Are there any plans to add the ability to edit book tags within Calibre Companion? I keep track of the books I have already read by tags...it would be nice to change these tags with Calibre Companion.

Until this is added simply update the tags in calibre, connect as wireless device, allow the initial connect jobs to complete then disconnect and all of the metadata (including any new or altered tags) is now up to date. No need to resend any books.

Thanks. That is what I do when I am near the computer.

I'd have to check with my colleague, but as far as I know Calibre itself doesn't support "two way" communication from devices. Thus there isn't any way for us to do that without also spending a lot of time modifying the main desktop program. So for now, there aren't any plans to do that. Sorry!
