Do you mean the "Manage Items" available in Single Metadata Edit? If so then no. Managing the complexities of simultaneous changes in two different dialogs across multiple books is more than I want to attempt.

This isn't exactly what you asked for but is what is practical without lots of work and dangerous changes. You can bring up the Manage ??? dialog by holding the SHIFT or CTRL key when clicking the button. If you want a particular item then copy the text to the clipboard before opening the editor then pasting it into the search or filter box.

Like many, if not most, of calibre's UI features it is described in the button's tooltip.
