Bug Description

When you do a bulk metadata update and then choose to "review downloaded metadata" the screen that pops up does not fit in one window. It did prior to adding a larger editing area for the comments. Now, however, to see the cover image you have to scroll all the way down. Is there a way to adjust this? Either by choosing the order that the two areas appear (ie: cover then comments) or by adjusting the size of the comments area by choosing to hide editing elements unless needed? I typically use the cover as a final check for correct on downloaded metadata and as things stand now I am constantly having to scroll between the top field (title) and the bottom field (cover image) to verify correct information...

What's preventing you from simply resizing the window? The windows will
remember its last used size, so you just have to do it once.

The window is as tall as I can get it. I've even changed screen resolution to see if that fixed the problem.

I can understand if there isn't a viable solution... It's just an... annoyance lol that gets really aggravating when you're adding a few hundred items and you have to keep scrolling up and down.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.

Screen resolution is 1600 x 900. I've also lowest at 1024 x 768. And a variety of permutations in between. None of them give me a complete view without having to scroll. Again... it's mainly an annoyance that gets really annoying when doing bulk adds. If it's only one or two books it’s not so bad... but scrolling up and down for 100+ entries? Esshhhh yeah - annoying! Thanks for taking the time to look into this.
