Downloading Metadata question -

I have a large library I'm processing, when going through it sometimes the author/title is switched, and the metadata download fails for obvious reasons,
is there a way to tell it to "IF download fails switch author/title and check again" sorta thing?
thanks
Collin

No, but you can scan the library by sight and highlight all the books that are switched. Then go to the edit metadata window and check the box swap author and title then OK and all of the books will have the author and title switched.

I'm curious, how is this different from the built in swap title and author?

This is a Author Search ONLY

Sometimes I'm a little slow. That's what I get for hopping on the wife's machine for a quick look before I headed for work.

Aren't you a little big to be jumping on a poor tiny computer
