Unhappy Argh!!! I accidentally closed the Review Downloaded Metadata dialog AGAIN!

As you may gather from the subject, I have a problem with the Review Downloaded Metadata dialog. Specifically, if you hit enter in a field on that dialog, say the Tags field, because that's usually the one it happens to me in, the dialog will close and IT WILL NOT SAVE YOUR CHANGES.

This is really frustrating, especially when you just tweaking a tag on the 19th book of your download and now all the other accepts/rejects/tweaks are gone and you have to do it all over again.

Is there a way to either make it save the changes you've already reviewed or make the enter key not close that dialog?



Personally, I'd really like it to save the update as soon as I hit Accept on a book rather than wait for the end.

I cannot reproduce this, pressing enter in that dialog causes it to move to the next book (activates the Next button)

And here I turned off even the behavior of enter triggering Next, since that could be unexpected as well.

Interesting. I'm on OS X and I can hit enter in any box except description and the dialog closes without saving.

Could I have changed a shortcut somewhere that had unfortunate side effects?

It doesn't matter, in the latest calibre release, Enter is suppressed totally.
