When I press the button to the left of the {ids} text box, in the Metadata Edit General tab, calibre interrogates the clipboard for an ISBN number, if there's nothing resembling an ISBN I'm prompted to enter one.

If I right click in the {ids} text box, there's an "Edit identifiers in a dedicated window" option, it pops a simple text box into which I can enter keyname:value pairs e.g. books_etc:9780571345809 or torygraph_review:mere-wife-review-beowulf-updated-modern-new-york/

Am I missing something?

I'd rather enter a name (maybe select from a drop down list of what's in Preferences->L&F) followed by a complete URI including the protocol name, the latter is usually waiting in the clipboard. As it is I have to paste it into the text box and carefully chop off the front bit e.g. "https://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/what-to-read/"

Re the Wide Button, my problem with it is that I forget where it is. Book Details seems an unlikely place - but I can't think of a less unlikely place
