In that context, I want to copy everything except my user-created columns #status and #processing. Unless I can configure different versions of copy metadata for different tasks, I'm going to keep that version.

Thank you both.
Perhaps the JobSpy plugin could have a collection of exclusion lists from which you would select prior to doing the copy and paste - it may even be able to do the copy step when a list is selected.

If what you are asking is if there is a way to paste into all the fields you want to update in one go, then no. You need to copy the text you want to paste, click in the field and paste (either using the keyboard or menus) and then repeat for each field.

And for the record, I don't think any method that allowed a "mass" paste into a lot of fields would be particularly useful. I think I would spend as much time organising where I had to cut the text from as doing it the above way.

Okay, I've installed Job Spy, I'll see if that helps. Both my typing hand and my off hand hurt from way too much typing and from ... who knows, may be referred pain from my typing hand.

@MarjaE - my comment about JobSpy was speculating about new functionality that could be added to the plugin. AFAIK there's nothing in it now that provides a collection of exclusion lists.

After my post I remembered that the exclusion list comes into play when you do the paste, I implied it came into play when you do the copy. No matter, the select from the collection of exclusion lists could patch the selected exclusions into the Tweak ready for the Paste to use and then initiate the Copy.

Job Spy "Import CSV File to Update Metadata"

Perhaps your work-flow would improve if you used the Job Spy "Import CSV File to Update Metadata" tool. Reading the ToolTips via mouse-hovering is obligatory. Look under the "Metadata GUI Tools" sub-menu. All of JS' menus are "tear-off" at the perforation, but the ToolTips quit displaying after a menu is torn off; read them first.

Note the ToolTip regarding exporting a Calibre Catalog CSV file to use as a starting point.

I have an astigmatism, which is hard to correct. So I have trouble with small text, and certain fonts. I also have trouble with tooltips. I don't think I'm going to be able to follow up on this.
