There's various old threads regarding this and Tags:

https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/40912-metadata-manager-tags-autocomplete/

https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/66541-autocomplete-metadata-tags/

 

I propose making Metadata fields such as Genres, People, Studios, Tags (and any other field this might make sense for) Autocomplete-capable so that we can start typing and see a list of existing options to choose from. This will help a lot with making sure we are staying consistent and not accidentally adding a new variation on an existing value.

 

Thanks for considering my request!  :)

In Chrome it already does this by default

Yes it's a good idea for the future. Thanks.

Great, thanks @@Luke!

I think that is probably just the browser storing the values and presenting them as options. I'm talking about the Metadata Manager interface doing lookups on the corresponding values in the Emby Server Database and presenting the user with a list of existing options that contain some of the letters the user has started to type.
