Tag Editing

I am trying to get tags into some sort of order. One of the main problems is that people add very specific tags that need to be generalised eg. World War II - Gallipoli - Soldiers - Fighting.

If one uses the Tag Editior in the metadata dialogue, deleting the above tag, simply puts it into the unused tags and doesn't get rid of it.

Would it be possible to have a right-click option in the Tag Editor dialogue that will permanently delete the above tag — yes, from all books?

if you wan tto remove a tag from all books, right click it in th etag browser. The tag editor is for editing tags from the current book.
