MusicBee Wishlist / Bio Language
« on: September 28, 2023, 10:13:51 AM »

In this thread we talked about the language of biographies.
Wouldn't it be more convenient to eliminate all the automation?
After all, for the images of artists you often find images that have nothing to do with the artist, not even remotely.
The biography is always in English and sometimes even here it is incorrect or cannot be found.
To search for biographies in my language I created a link in the internet preferences<Artist>/+wiki and the biography is displayed in my language if present. But I always have to copy and paste it into the bio panel.
It happened to me that the image of the artist found was that of an industrialist of the same name as the artist searched for.
My request: can't all the automatic systems be removed?
And perhaps insert a button, a menu that by clicking it downloads the biography manually, as happens with the covers.
And while we're at it. Why is the artist image in the music explorer not linked to the image in the artist image panel?

Questions / Visualizzazione artisti
« on: September 26, 2023, 09:57:18 AM »
I don't know if it's possible to do this!!!
Artists: Albano & Romina Power
I'm viewing Al Bano in the music explorer and in the multiple artists separator, when he performs with Romina I put Al Bano & Romina Power.
Only the discs in which Al Bano appears are displayed to me and not those in which he appears paired with Romina which, in my opinion, should be in the "Appears in ..." section
If in the multiple artists separator I divide the two artists, viewing Al Bano however puts them all together, both those he performed alone and those paired with Romina.
In summary: in the first case he creates three distinct artists. Viewing Al Bano or Romina Power I will not see those produced together.
In the second case the two artists are created by mixing all the albums produced together and not.
Is there a way that, if it only displays Al Bano, it will show me the albums produced together with Romina Power in "Appare In..."?

Questions / Artist image display
« on: September 19, 2023, 04:03:26 PM »

I have a problem with the artist image displaying.
For example: the Italian duo Wess & Dori Ghezzi. He visualizes Dori Ghezzi to me, instead I would like him to show an image of the duo.
In Edit sort value the first value is Dori Ghezzi, Wess and finally Wess & Dori Ghezzi. I thought this was the reason why when I play one of their songs it shows me Dori Ghezzi and I tried to change the order by putting the full name of the two first.
It's not possible to do that. Every time I save and reopen the editor it always comes back in alphabetical order.
However, sometimes he takes the first, sometimes the second and sometimes both.
Isn't there a way why it displays the singer you are viewing?

Questions / IF command
« on: August 06, 2023, 11:04:51 AM »

I'm trying to make a simple comparison.

$If(<Year>=<Original Year>,true-value,false-value)

But it doesn't work and it's always true or false depending on the comparison if it's the same or different.
Am I doing something wrong?

Questions / Saving custom tag data
« on: July 02, 2023, 06:00:27 AM »
i had to transfer music bee to another pc. Tried to back up everything and everything seemed fine. Instead, I realized that the data relating to the custom tags were not recovered.
Where does music bee save this data?

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.
