Using Magic Wand on existing entries in the library

I have linked to a lot of books using a bibtex file that was exported from other software. Included in the metadata are ISBNs, so I want to use the Magic Wand feature to auto-update the rest of the metadata, but it only seems to work with new entries.

Is there a way - either direct or some sort of workaround - to have Zotero use ISBNs that have been input (whether manually or via an import like this) to search for metadata?
  • Updating metadata is planned, but for now you can just use Add Item by Identifier again, select both items, and merge them, choosing the version/data you prefer.
  • Such a feature is planned but not currently available. For now, you can make a new entry with the Magic Wand, then merge the two items.
