Bug Description

I believe it would be more useful for the cursor to default to the 'Filter Available Tags' box rather than defaulting to the 'Add Tag' box as it now does. I think it is more common for the user to want to add existing tags to a book than to create new tags, and it would speed the process to have the tag editor open with the cursor in that field to begin with. As an alternative, maybe have the tag editor open with the cursor in whichever entry box it was in the last time it was used? [Calibre 2.31 for windows 7 pro, but I believe this has been the default behavior for many versions]

Steps to reproduce: Select book, click 'Edit Metadata button or [control]-E, click on 'Open Tag Editor' button. Begin typing. Input will go into 'Add Tag' input box, not 'Filter Available Tags' input box.
