So for some tags there's this little handy dropdown menu, when I select the field I can just press down arrow and it will open it up, I can highlight certain values by pressing the arrow keys. My question is what shortcut, if available, can be used to select these without having to click it with the mouse. I'd figure if you can move and highlight between these options you should be able to select them using the keyboard as well. But I have not found a way to do this yet. If there is no built in way to do this can anyone recommend me a workaround? This would make categorizing my music just easier enough to be bearable.

Secondly, I accidentally typed in something really stupid for one of these dropdown tags and now it has its own option in the dropdown menu, it's stuck there and now it's cluttering up the menu. How do I get rid of it? I know it's possible because somehow before in the past I managed to hide all of the unused values in the dropdown menu for this tag, which was rather useful as I didn't plan on using them anyway, and it allowed me to focus more on the values I did use (hopefully it wasn't just a glitch, if somebody has done this before and knows how to do it can you tell me?) I thought it did this automatically but it turned out it was a one time thing and I can't figure out how to hide those unused values again, this would also be useful for getting rid of this one useless weird value I'll never use that's cluttering up the dropdown.

Now this got me thinking, and I apologize that this would make the post three questions but I originally thought of this and thought it was a little far off but is it possible to make custom tags dropdown lists? This would also be very helpful but it sounds far off so it is not required.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I think you're talking about the auto-complete lists, which are automatically generated based on the existing values in your library. Should be happening for custom tags, too, so that's covered.

To get rid of one, you need remove it from your library. You might have to do a search for the bad value to find where it occurs and change it. And you might need to restart MusicBee once it's gone to refresh the list it was in.
