Bug Description

The bulk editor has a "tags editor" button for the built in tags column, but doesn't for custom metadata columns.

Could it be added there too?

Changing the component for this bug.

I am confused. The edit-bulk display doesn't have a "Tag Editor" button. The edit-single display does have an tags editor button, but then so do all the "behaves like tags" custom columns.

What are you asking for?

Right now, the tags editor button is in these places:
* single edit, TAGS
* single edit, custom metadata columns that are tags like
* bulk edit TAGS

It is missing from
* bulk edit custom metadata tags like columns

Right now, when adding tags to custom metadata columns, I have been doing a single edit to make the tags list, then copying it, and doing a bulk edit and pasting it in...

Is it possible to make this work such that it also shows the Applied Tags in a group of "bulk" selected books and not only the Avaiable Tags, just like it would do if it were a single book with the Tag Editor being viewed?

I just looked at this change in the new release thinking that would be the case (which would be awesome), but it is not. It simply shows ALL tags under available and not ones in use in the group selected.

What you are asking for is hard, perhaps even not generally possible given
that the books may not share the same tags. I am not interested in making
the attempt. You are off course welcome to do the work yourself.

Thank you. I wasn't sure if the original intent was supposed to or if it was easy to modify for this.
