But, you can add identifiers to the right-click menu of the button.

Hmm, you can remove an identifier in the book details pane. Maybe it should also allow adding one.

I use the same process as you using the metadata edit dialogue, although I can't add identifiers to the menu of the button, is there a plugin? or is this feature can be made into a plugin?

Thanks for telling me the identifier in the book detals pane, I will request for a feature to allow adding identifiers.

You can copy a set of column values from one book to another using ctrl+c and ctrl+v, there's a tweak to define which columns are copied. You can see what your doing in context of other books, e.g. if it's book in series you might want start by doing a search for that series.

As far as I know the only column that can't be entered via the book list cells is Identifiers. That for me was a reason to not use custom identifiers to create links -- and I also didn't like my custom links masquerading as book store links

Too bad there is no easy way to add identifiers. I will try requesting a feature for adding on the book panel

Thank you for sharing View manager, I will install it, looks like I can use it to hide columns I don't need to know when choosing a book to read.

Right-clicking on the identifier paste button should show a menu with "Edit list of prefixes" at the top and several prefixes under it. Clicking the first item will open a dialog where you can change which prefixes are listed on the menu.

If that isn't there, then update calibre. I don't remember exactly when this was added, but it was at least six months ago.

I'm wondering if there can be a way to tweak the Calibre Amazon metadata to download the asin identifiers instead of isbn. Also, would really like to see the tags go into a genre column. I can't find the Amazon info in the Calibre files (other than the basic .py that says what fields to download).
