Problem when using tag browser to rename series

I noticed one of my larger series (by multiple authors) had 3 different series names.

for example I had all:
Author "A"s books in series "The World at War"
Author "B"s books in series "World at War"
Author "C"s books in series "World at War, The"

So I used the Tag Browser to Rename the Series of Author B and C to match Author A.

Boom Done.

BUT then I noticed a problem.

Author A wrote:1, 4, 5, 9
Author B wrote:2, 3, 6
Author C wrote:7, 8

But when I renamed the series of B and C, the tag browser also Renumbered the books in the series to Add them After Author A's.

So I had:
Author A wrote:1, 4, 5, 9
Author B wrote:10, 11, 12
Author C wrote:13, 14

Can we get an option in the tag browser when renaming a series that matches an existing series to NOT renumber the book in series?

option 1. in book details, right click in series to manage series, rename..

option 2. or using Find Duplicates Plugin, Find Metadata Variations, set to series and search , tick the show matching books.

option 3. with plugin Manage Series. just highlight the book with the same series and do rename in plugin.

option 3 allows both rename and reorder (and it also allows a title tweak)

Ahh That does the trick. Exactly what I needed, and faster than using the tag browser.
