I'd like to clean up the list of authors in the drop down box. Anyone know how I can do that?

Thanks!

The drop down list is the list of defined authors in your library.
Sort your library by Author (click the Author Heading).
Highlight the group that shold all be the same.
Right click or use the small arrow next to Edit Meta-Data
Edit Meta data in Bulk
Pick the desired Author entry from the List or Type it in
There is a tick box if you want the Author sort field to use this update.
The now unused will disappear of the list after the save.

Don't feel bad.
This is one heck of a powerful program.

The documentation only covers th basics operation of the controls, not the possible ways to (mis-)use them
