Question Editing metadata stored lists

Hi,

I have been using Calibre for a couple of months and often add pdfs where the metadata has author and title switched for example. There is really useful button that switches them back again, but the incorrect information is still added to the drop-down selection list, so I have to scroll past an ever increasing list of unwanted entries.

Is there any way to edit these lists and delete unwanted entries?

Every you change the author of a book, calibre should be checking the list of authors and removing unused entries.

You are quite right - I was sloppy in checking, there were some books I hadn't edited

Thanks
