Including publisher info with social metadata download

Hi everyone. This is my first post. I'll try not to scew it up.

I'm trying to find a way to include the publisher information when I download only the social metadata via the calibre GUI.

My goal is to download all the metadata except the Title and probably the Author too. The Author isn't as important though as I usually don't have to fix that after fetching metadata. I've got a lot of books left to process and I'm hoping to avoid having to edit 90% of the Titles after a metadata fetch if at all possible.

Does anyone know how to include publisher, but not title when downloading metadata from cablibre using the GUI?

Calibre->Preferences->Overwrite author and title by default when fetching metadata.

Untick this - that will stop ALL metadata download types from overwriting the title and author. Now instead of using download only social metadata, just use the normal ctrl+D (or download without covers if you don't want those overwritten and have them already).
