MusicBee Wishlist / Start/end position only in playlists
« on: May 28, 2023, 09:28:48 AM »
I realized that trimming the beginning/ending songs isn't always useful.
For example: a song should be cut at the beginning, because it has a particular beginning, only in a playlist but with a single listening you would like to hear it in full.
It would be nice to have a choice beside the two start/end setting fields that says: only in playlists.
By flagging it, those cuts will only be active in the playlists, in other cases always.

MusicBee Wishlist / Enable multiline in virtual tags
« on: May 05, 2023, 08:43:38 AM »

It would be nice to have the . (multilines)
For example:
Artist: <artist> cr/
Title: <title> cr/
Song length: <length> Year: <year> cr/
Etc. etc.
With a single field you could create a set of information that currently requires many virtual tags.
This could be placed in a panel, for example, the track information. You could create entire information masks with a single virtual tag.

Bug Reports / It looks like a backup related error
« on: April 08, 2023, 03:54:30 PM »

I have this error randomly. It's been happening since I updated to the latest version.

Giving OK, the following error appears
Giving ok on the error below the program hangs for a few seconds and then closes.
Reopening it, there are no latest changes regarding the virtual fields or preferences changes, for the rest, however, such as the insertion of new tracks, they are present.
I also tried to go back to old saved settings but after a while, especially when the program plays but nothing is done, this error comes out.

Questions / Link to full album or artist discography
« on: April 07, 2023, 10:55:41 AM »

I remember incorrectly, or I dreamed it, it seems to me that in MB there was a system whereby clicking on the title of the album or artist, in the main panel, opened the complete album or the singer's discography in a new tab.
Is there and where is it?

MusicBee Wishlist / The track multi album.
« on: March 27, 2023, 09:02:55 AM »
I had a somewhat peculiar idea.
I have many collections in my library that contain the same song but on different files in each collection.
If the MB could have multi album so that the same file can be shared by multiple collections so as to save space in bytes.
Example: the same song appears in 7 collections, the single song occupies 4 MB but multiplying it by 7 becomes 280 MB, with the multi album you could save 276 MB.
By author there is often the best, the greatest, the monographic, the period like the 70s plus the collections of various artists that contain the song of an author whose discography you already have.
I don't know how easy it is to script this but it would be so useful, in my opinion.
The multi-album

MusicBee Wishlist / Warning edit too many songs
« on: March 12, 2023, 05:25:28 PM »

I had a big problem. I mistakenly selected a 3000 track and in my haste I didn't see mixed in the album tag and I edited it and so it changed me in one fell swoop about 200 albums, which I'm still restoring.
You could put an alert that reads: Warning: you are trying to edit over 100 tracks, are you sure? Yes or no.

Questions / Blank line with the $IsNull
« on: March 07, 2023, 07:57:51 AM »
If you view a custom tag the result will be: name tag unknown. I know that putting the command $IsNull this error is not displayed but a space is inserted instead.
I created this code that allows me to enter both the disc number, if there are more than one in the album, and also the title of the grouped sub-tracks at the same time.
{color: 255,155,0} {font: Segoe UI Semibold;Bold, Italic;10}$If(<N° dischi>>1,$If($Contains(<Sottotitolo tracce>,*)="T",$IsNull(<Sottotitolo tracce>,,$CutLeft(<Sottotitolo tracce>,1)),"Disco n: "<N° disco>$IsNull(<Sottotitolo tracce>,," - "<Sottotitolo tracce>)),<Sottotitolo tracce>)

Everything works fine except that if the disk is single and has no subtracks the first row is empty causing the other tracks to be scaled down.

without $IsNull

with $IsNull

Note that there is a gap between the dividing line and the first track that normally shouldn't be there.

MusicBee Wishlist / Edit tracks in play control
« on: February 14, 2023, 07:57:48 AM »
You're arranging songs while listening to a playlist or random songs and realize that what's playing needs a quick tweak. Right click on play control -> edit track.
So you don't have to move from what you're editing or listening to.
Would it be comfortable?

MusicBee Wishlist / Height of fonts in fields
« on: February 10, 2023, 03:34:38 PM »

Why are tags cut off if using a large font?
Couldn't the field be made to fit the height of the font?
As in the image below, I would like to display the album title and data very large but this is not possible.

If you are listening to a song and in the meantime scroll the list of artists in the left bar, but any list, by mistake, you press twice starts the first song found in the main window.
It also happens in the playlist list. You're listening to a playlist and while you're watching others you accidentally double-click and another one starts.
This leads to the interruption of listening to an album, playlist or whatever you are listening to.
In my opinion the start of a song should only be in the main window, where there is the song list.

Bug Reports / Highlight existing texts
« on: January 30, 2023, 10:52:27 AM »
I wanted to highlight the songs with lyrics and songs that are only instrumental and songs that don't have it at all, so to insert.
As per image.

In practice, in the track list, the highlighted field changes color.

f the text is present it turns green, if the piece is only instrumental, I insert this manually, it turns yellow and if it is empty it remains red.
It always remains red even if the text is present.

If I insert the text in the file it turns green but it doesn't remain after it turns red again like there was no text but there is.

MusicBee Wishlist / Music explorer and biographies entered manually.
« on: January 28, 2023, 03:36:19 PM »
Often entering the music explorer tells me that the artist does not exist.
It does exist but on itunes they entered the name incorrectly.
Eg Loredana Bertè they write Loredana Berte' and can't find her and so do many others, above all Italian singers or singers from other nations who are not English or USA.
I was born that the discography is often incomplete and with the wrong production year, the reissue date seems to be taken.
Among other things, he often finds photos and biographies that have nothing to do with the artist.
Among other things, being Italian, I like to read the biographies in Italian and therefore every time I have to search by hand for these in my language and insert them instead of those in English.
Having said that, couldn't we have a totally manual memorization of the artist information?

Questions / Playlist
« on: January 25, 2023, 10:27:19 AM »
Is there any way to know which playlist a song is in to use it in virtual tags?

MusicBee Wishlist / Subtrack
« on: December 29, 2022, 02:11:49 PM »
Maybe it's a little complicated.
Some songs, like the turn of the friendly card by alan parson is divided into 5 sub-songs.
Usually these songs, if they have not been divided before, are merged into a single track, even by importing them from the CD.
What I wonder and wonder: it is not possible, through tags, to divide these tracks by telling MB at which point of the track to start a certain piece and contextually create the tag for those tracks that will be moved slightly to the right of the main tracks.
Maybe in pop music it's quite rare to have to split tracks but in classical music it would be really important.

Questions / Wrapping in a field
« on: November 21, 2022, 10:41:19 AM »
I hope it is translated right into English.
Is it possible to wrap in a virtual field?
Example of visualization in a single virtual field:
<author> CR (Carriage return)
