TheaterMode / Modify .xml file - how to see changes in TM
« on: September 28, 2018, 04:27:40 PM »
You are modifying a TM .xml page. You make a change & save the file. You definitely DO save it!

What is the best way to see this change reflected when viewing it in TM?

I can't work out an easy way to see the change. Just closing TM down and opening it again doesn't work. The old version of the file is still displayed.

I've set F9 to Start Theater Mode. ESC (by default) closes it. This is quick and easy. But I don't see my modifications this way....

Any tips/tricks/settings out there to aid this? Thanks.

Questions / Location of bands - what do people do?

Hi - I'm new to MusicBee and love it so far. Very powerful with tons of useful features. Scarily good.

Anyway - when I tag stuff up I often include the location of the band/artist in their name:

The Damned (London, England)
Dead Kennedys (San Francisco, CA)
Anti-Nowhere League (Tunbridge Wells, England)
The Exploited (Edinburgh, Scotland)

Now it's easy to to keep the artist names consistent by just selecting 'Damned', 'The Damned', 'Damned, The' and changing them all to 'The Damned (London, England)' Then to hear every artist from London you can do a filter of 'all artists that include (London' but I'm wondering if there is a there is any recommendation on how to include the location info in a separate tag(s)? Town / State / Country.

Is it just the case of using Custom tags? I see one of the 'save to music file as tag' values is actually 'Location'. So if I did 3 custom tags for town/state/country then I could concatenate these 3 into Location to save it with the file... It would be a bit manual but doable.

Just thinking out aloud really. Does anyone else actually do this? (include location info for the artist). Now you've read this you know you want to...
