Annoying behaviour when editing series in Library View

In recent versions of Calibre I have noticed very annoying behaviour. Perhaps it was this way for a long time and I wasn't editing series often enough.

I have set tweak: doubleclick_on_library_view to 'edit_cell'

When I doubleclick author name or title, the text is highlighted and I can paste a new value or start typing a new name or title. Great!

The problem occurs when I want to set series for a book that has the series field empty. I doubleclick the field and immediately the first series name in a alphabetically sorted list appears in the edit box. I have to delete this first and only then I can paste or type a new value. I wish the field was empty on entry (doubleclick) and would be filled in from the list only when I press down arrow or start typing.

Is it possible to change this somehow through a tweak or other setting?

I think that companies that sell expensive software should come to you to learn ;-)

Thank you.

I agree. Most developers I have dealt with will rarely admit a bug exists and if they do it usually takes months for a fix. And most ebook software supports only one reader or is a database only.

And the feature set becomes richer and nicer every week or so. I find lots of small fixes and features accidentally as they are not even mentioned specifically in the log. Just incredible.

I can see no reason why bugs that require only a small effort to fix should not be fixed immediately. I like having a neat and tidy bug tracker, just like I like having a neat and tidy book list
