MusicBee Wishlist / Managing Duplicates
« on: June 22, 2016, 02:49:34 PM »
Apologies if this has already been mentioned, my wish would be to have the manage duplicates output in the main panel rather than a pop up. It is hard to know what information you have added to the tags of a track and as to which copy you want to keep. Unless I am missing something and not doing it right.

Have found this program very useful compared to other alternatives

I have a virtual column set to display title ignoring lead words or characters. This allows me to work through my tracks and pick out duplicates where there has been a spelling error or use of characters such as "A" "The" "()" etc. This works superb for my needs with the exception that MB adds a comma when it places the ignored word at the end. If I have a number of tracks that have the same start word such as Star this can get separated from a tack that is The Star or A Star if there or there are a number of tracks starting with Star followed by a space, as it treats the comma as a character. The comma cannot be set to be ignored in the Tag customizing, or I am doing it wrong.

I know I my be out on my own for using the Track name in the Column browser and have had discussions around this previously, all I can say it works for me and was one of the things I used in MM.

Any suggestions on either stopping the comma being inserted or using a character that can be ignored


Questions / Set Displayed Column

I am new to MB and have previously used MM, I am trying to set column display to be able to filer on title, the same way as I do in MM. The reason being I have many of the same songs by different artists and want to choose my preference. Title does not seem to be an option with right clicking and set displayed columns. I am just missing it or is it not an option or is there a work round?
