What to do when downloaded metadata is wrong?
I'm currently inputting my library into Calibre. As Kovid knows, I've used it for conversions and also the ebook-viewer, but this is the first time I've used it for ebook management. While inputting my Barbara Michaels collection, and "fixing" the metadata and adding covers, I noticed that the date published is wrong, on every one of her titles. I tried going in and changing it manually, and it won't let me do that, either. I tried changing the date published metadata on one I didn't download the metadata for as well, and it won't let me change it. It shows me the calendar, but when I click on a date, it goes back to what it was to begin with. Any ideas? Am I just missing something simple? I realize that the reason for the downloaded metadata being wrong is likely that they're giving me the date for the last time an edition was printed, but I need the original publication date. But why can't I change it manually?
Oh, by the way... I want to add here that I am thoroughly enjoying the GUI updates. They make the program super nice to work with!
ETA: Version is 7.10
