Bug Description

Version 4.15 [64bit Windows]

I'm often consolidating similar tags into one tag, so in the Tag Manager, when you edit a tag title/name it would be wonderful if it would have a dropdown with autocomplete functionality based on existing tags, like it does when you Edit/Bulk Edit Metadata.

Moreover, it would be great if you could bulk edit many tags - if multiple are selected and you click the edit button, all the selected tags will change to the entered text.

Changing the component for this bug.

I added completion boxes when editing in the tag browser, edit authors, and the category editors (tags, publisher, etc).

The "bulk edit" request requires more work than I want to do.

I was wrong -- the bulk edit feature wasn't too hard. Fix committed.
