A suggestion...

Hi
I can't find a good place to make this, but as there appears to be other suggestions in this area...

Anyway my idea is that when you select a number of books to edit the metadata individually, a counter could be useful. That is, pick 50 books, and you can see how far through the 50 you are - "Book 20 of 50"

Not a biggie, but I have noticed that when I am doing the above, I often find that I have no idea how close I am to getting through the fixes.

Another idea:
With downloading Metadata and/or covers in bulk, it would be good to have an option to cue them up first and go through them one by one so you can make sure the right details are being picked up.

So rather than going into each book, clicking the 'fetch metadata from server' button, choosing the info and going back to the book, and clicking next. I am suggesting you select the books you want to fetch metadata from the server for, it brings up the options for the first book, you choose the option you want, click next and it bring up the option for the next book.

Hope this make sense.

Open tickets for you ideas if they don't already exist. The forum is a great place to discuss feature requests / ideas but they get lost easily.
