series metadata feature request

Would it be possible to add a menu option under edit metadata to just download series info?

I have noticed that the series metadata field is now often auto filled which is a good thing.
Unfortunately it does not always match what I have for other volumes in series. Doesn't always match other downloaded ones either but usually does.

I know I can bulk edit and will probably do so, but would be nice to have auto

No end to menu option if I start down that road I intend at some point to have a bulk download wizard that will allow you to specify what metadata you want downloaded by picking them out of a list.

By "Match up", you mean the spelling?

highlight all the books,
click the edit meta-data button
Type/pick the name yo want to have them all be.
OK


Note yo will need to RE-ASSIGN the series index numbers. Make notes before you start
The same trick works for bulk correcting other fields.

I will robably just do bulk editing as it seems easier to line them all up by series and paste the most common name and auto number when I can. no big deal, I was just hopingOnly 5126 books to go
