How about the search history in the Editor? I find the various search fields eventually get clogged up with too much history. The only way I've found to clear this is to open the edit-book-history.plist file in a text editor and clear it out manually. This is sort of cool, since I can keep entries I use all the time, but it is also a bother. Is there an easier way?

Right click in the Find box.

Tip: when you can't find something in calibre, right click in the most likely places, just about everything in calibre has right click options.
