Typing stops when entering metadata

Hello,

When I go to edit metadata for a new book, calibre prevents me from typing unless I click the field again. For each letter I type of a tag, if it matches any other tag it will stop my typing and push me to select one from the drop down menu unless I re-click the field and then again I can only type on letter. This only just recently started happening and I haven't made any changes recently so i'm not sure what has caused this to happen. I add new books frequently and this is quite an inconvenience.

If anyone has any advice on a fix or what may have caused this, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

There are a couple of tweaks that can alter the behaviour of entering certain column types e.g. authors, tags, series etc:

I had exactly this issue several updates ago using Ubuntu 20.04 - it was on going to Calibre 6.0. Starting Calibre in debug mode was a workaround for a few weeks. Then some update either to Ubuntu or Calibre fixed it.

Just tried this. Thought the True val for the first option was my issue but unfortunately it was not the solution. Thank you for the suggestion though.

Debug mode does work to temporarily solve the problem. I was having this issue with calibre when i first got it and though that it was just the way the program was, then it went away. I guess this is an issue with some update somewhere like you said. Thank you for the help though, this workaround will do for the time being!

Switch to using X11 instead of Wayland and you will be fine.
