Metadata Dropdown list maintenance issue with new Items
(10-06-2018, 11:29 AM)Zuberman Wrote: Thanks for the feedback. I can look into fixing that. As a side note, unless you prefer using the dropdown, it's actually much faster just to type in the values you want to use. Existing values will pop up with autocompletion, and new ones can be created just by hitting enter after typing in the value. 


Thanks for the fast response, Mike.  Regarding your suggestion about the autocompletion, I had an issue in the past when using this feature - when I used it, many times the item that was autocompleted ended up getting created again as a duplicate (I especially remember this happening on Artists and Composers).  I then had to go through a convoluted process to consolidate the duplicates, so I reverted to just using the dropdown list and the "new" button.  I have not tested it recently to see if this is still an issue.

HOWEVER - I just tried the Companion Program to work between my laptop and my desktop and I find that when using this one, the dropdown positioning works as requested in this suggestion, and the autocomplete also seems to work as you suggest above.  I will try using this program for my database maintenance from now on, so the priority of this suggestion goes even further down in my mind.
