I REALLY REALLY need a keyword editing tool within Reference Manager. My old DOS-program Papyrus had an elegant tool where you could delete, merge or otherwise edit your keywords with immediate effect for all your references. This is totally lacking in Reference Manager, you can't do anything within the Terms Manager, and it drives me crazy. Any suggestions?

The Term manager is used to perform theses changes. If you are using Refernece Manager 11, or a network version of Reference Manager 9/10 you need to open the database in Read-Write Exclusive mode before you can edit the terms:
At this point you can use the Global Edit command to change keywords in both the list and the database. Purge will delete the term for the list and from every reference in the database. Neither of these can be "undone" which is why you want to have a backup copy before you being editing the terms.
