Book Merge via Keyboard Shortcut Not Working
First noted in Calilbre 2.8.
Also appears in Calibre 2.9.
Launch Calibre Library.
Run Find Duplicates plugin 1.6.2 by Grant Drake
Configure duplicate search as

- Search Type = Title/Author
- Title matching = Similar
- Author matching = Similar
List of possible duplicates are returned.
Select Duplicate book 1, ctrl click to select Duplicate book 2
Press M (for merge) on keyboard
In Calibre 2.7 and earlier the 2 books would merge into another
No merging takes place...
Remapping the keyboard shortcut under Preferences - Change Calibre Behaviour - Keyboard - Edit Metadata... unexpected behaviour persists.
Click Edit Metadata icon - Merge Book Records - Merge into first selected book, delete others - then 2 books merge as expected.
