Inspection Delete Duplicate Solutions

i applied Mixed In Key's Platinum Notes to a few thousand songs and want to delete the old versions.
beatunes recognizes them as Duplicates by thumbprint, but only offers to delete the ones not added to the library first whereas I'd like to delete all but the one added last or keep the ones with the key or energy rating or hyphen at the end.
for example:
These Days.m4a
These Days -1A - 4.m4a
i want to keep the second one

can i create my own logical operators for Inspection Solutions?

    you can always select "Delete the selected songs" and then manually select the songs to delete in the bottom pane. A separate logic like "Keep highest bitrate" or the like is unfortunately not available and cannot easily be created.

    is there a way to use the keyboard to select Duplicate deletion options?
    they’re numbered 1,2,3,etc, but when i hit a number it doesn’t select so i have to click on it with the mouse and then hit return. it just take a lot of time to do that.

    You have to focus the radio button (round button), then the number shortcuts work.
