How to Stop auto Tagging when Adding Books
I only want a few tags based on my subjects/interests. Calibre adds many tags when I add books. I'd like to stop 'auto tagging' and assign tags manually.
Is there a way to stop auto-tagging?

The setting can be Global (all sources)
1 way to get there.
select a book: tap 'E'
see the configure button near the bottom?
When that opens, you are in global mode.
There you tick which sources you like and what fields you want populated.
If you select a source, you then can use the 'individually...' button to refine your selection for that source. Repeat with each ticked source.
Note some of the other options on the configure main screen

My reading was that the OP is referring to when *adding* the books. If that is the case, the only way to do it is to turn off getting metadata from the file, in Preferences / Adding books. This will mean that title and author will now come from the filename, but it avoids the need for clearing the crappy tags that all too often publishers put in their books.
Kovid has said that one day he will implement a more granular control system for deciding which columns to populate when reading metadata from the book I believe, but it remains a wish list item for now.

I just do it by hand. It's not hard and not time consuming.
