Clipboard problem

Whenever I close the reader program, my OS clipboard is erased. This doesn't happen with Acrobat reader, Word or Notepad.

Trying to update thousands of entries with "unknown" author by opening the book, copying the author, then closing then editing the metadata and pasting- and there is nothing there. If I leave the book open and paste the author, I get a message it can't update the file because it's open, then I have to close the book, then click back, and click a couple more times to get the metadata update finished.

Known Quirk of QT5 (covered in a recent thread).

For now (forever? ), you need to leave Calibre running until the contents of the CB is consumed.

*Sigh*

Oh well, even with that minor problem, Calibre is still an awesome program!
