Entering new genre/tags

I'm creating a database from my existing books and there are quite a few of them. So I'm starting from a point of no tags and no genres. As I am adding new ones, I'm constantly finding myself in the position of looking up an existing genre/tag, finding I need a new one, having to close the lookup box and click add.

No big deal, but it's time consuming. Would it not be possible to have a button on the lookup genre/tag screens to add a new one. All it needs to do is close the existing screen and open the add screen.

It would also be helpful if I could select more than one genre/tag at a time.

Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve, there is Add tag/genre button near the Select tag/genre button in the Book card

Yes, I know, but the issue is that I have to open the "Select" window to discover the entry isn't there, then I have to close that window and click another icon to open the add window. It's several unnecessary clicks. It would be easier if I could open one dialog where I could select an existing tag/gene o add a new one.

I guess that's a "No" then.
