Marc Batch-Edit Bug (Wishlist?)

Bug Description

Working with our libraries in the current staff client and using the Marc Batch Edit function, there's currently no method of inserting subfields in a Marc tag. Everything seems to get appended to the end of the field instead. Perhaps some fancy regular expressions might solve this, but after a while of working on this, I could come up with no method of doing so.

Perhaps given the continued growth of the web-based client, this should be moved to a wishlist for that, but wanted to at least document this so as it shows up. What might work is an approach taken by the external free MarcEdit( which does allow this particular option.


Current Version: EG 2.4.2
Linux version: Debian
Can be seen by simply trying a sample Marc Batch Edit from within the staff client.
