Metadata is changing my Title/author upon exit.

Prior to .8 version of CALIBRE, I could edit the title, title sort, author, author sort, get the metadata and cover and all would be well with the world.

Now, upon exiting metadata, the title and author are changed to whatever is in the metadata. There was a checkbox on older versions that controlled whether or not you wished to make this change or not.

How do I get back to "not making the change", I just can't find it.

Thanks in advance for any help

Use the "Configure download metadata" button at the bottom of the Metadata editor screen to set which fields to update. You can also refine the setting by 'source' when you prefer one over the other

Yikes! How did I miss such an obvious solution.
Thanks for the push.
