Automating metadata download

Is there a way of highlighting, say, 20 books in the main calibre window and have the metadata be downloaded automatically.

I realize there is a daily limit to avoid having your IP blocked.

After selecting the 20 or so books, did you try the Download metadata and covers option in the Metadata Edit tool drop down menu. Default shortcut is Ctrl+D.
