Thank you for fixing this! Please also make it possible to change in the preferences of which value to display in Quick view? For example if I want to see the book tags in Quick view when selecting a book.

Starting in the next release: just double-click in the column you want to switch the view to those values in the clicked-upon book.

I thought this already worked. Sigh...

Is it possible to always have Tags in the Quickview shown as default?

Can you also make it possible to change a value of a field in the Quickview by clicking in an already selected field, the same way you can do in the Library view?

=== No, it didn't work reliably. I submitted code to fix it.

"Is it possible to always have Tags in the Quickview shown as default?"
=== No, but it takes only one double click to switch to tags. Once the selected
=== field is tags, or anything else, it won't change until you change it.

"Can you also make it possible to change a value of a field in the Quickview by

=== No. That would open the door to multiple writers, which calibre does not support.
=== It is also very complicated. Note that shift-double-click opens edit metadata,
=== giving you a form of edit from QV.
