restrict overwriting by downloaded metadata

Can someone remind me where the settings are to prevent downloaded metadata from overwriting fields such as tags and rating. I used to be able to find this control in preferences. I want the download to only give me the summary text and cover picture.

It is the preferences button right next to the "Download metadata" button on the Edit Metadata dialog. It is called "Configure Download" if you use Ctrl+D, and it is in Preferences called "Metadata download"...

Just had to add some books, get metadata, and being stressed already I got SO angry that author/title got messed up during metadata download. ( stressed out cause of labour conflict with huge US IT company..heating up for real )
Searched forever in Calibre preferences ( it used to be there, right ? hmm, I think so, but ... etc.etc. )
AND then I saw your post adrian1944, and it saved at least a small part of my day. Thanx,
Per

Edit: Believe it or not, but I DID do the "RTFM", but ... missed that one.
Might be easier for new users, but it surely fooled me.
Thanx all !!
