How to edit drop down menus
I have been very busy add books to my library and cleaning up metadata. My question is how do i delete bad information from the drop down menus.
example: I have for the Author 'J. K. Rowling' the following errors, J. K., J.K. Rowling, J. k. I wish to delete the ones in error. Is there a cool way to get the Library Management software to rebuild the drop downs based on what is in the library??
In any case is there a way to clean up the drop downs, Author(s), Series??

The dropdowns are filled with values from your library. As soon as you rename all occurrences of that author/series, it will no longer appear in a dropdown.
You may want to use the tag browser on the left hand side to rename your series. For authors, you could do similar, or perhaps use the Manage Authors dialog (a menu option when you right click on the Authors heafing in the tag browser).

IMHO the easiest place to spot and fix, is the Tag browser:
Select the first appearance. Hold the control key and select each of the other variations. (all should have a red + sign)
Now click the blue "i" (bulk edit metadata) and change the author, series... to the desired one.
Note: changing a series name this way, will renumber them (take series order notes before hand)
