Not sure this is particularly important but thought I would report - identified in this post

MusicBee 3.6.8869 P

With Folder Browser and Navigator both displayed in the same tab, switching from a selected folder to the Music node does not refresh the contents of the main panel (it retains the contents of the last folder selected).

If Library filters are configured and selected, then the main panel contents are refreshed as expected.
If any other node is selected first and then the Music node then the main panel contents are refreshed as expected.
If using the Computer node (instead of the Folder Browser), then the main panel contents are refreshed as expected - I imagine that most people use this, or would be happy to use this, instead.

Portable Devices / Bug When Syncing Playlists Containing ASX Files
« on: April 22, 2024, 09:38:53 PM »
Only spotted this when testing sync to a new phone. This relates to syncing a playlist that contains one or more ASX files.

The correct audio file (e.g. the FLAC file that the ASX file links to) is always copied across as expected but the playlist file is not always updated and can remain with a reference to the ASX file. This seems to be linked to the 'on-the-fly conversion' setting:

  No on-the-fly conversion:
  Playlist file on device retains reference to ASX file.

  Options 'convert to MP3' and 'only convert files not already formatted as MP3':
  Playlist file on device correctly updated with reference to MP3 file.

  Options 'convert to MP3' and 'only convert files with a lossless format':
  Playlist file on device retains reference to ASX file.

  Options 'convert to MP3' and 'convert all files':
  Playlist file on device correctly updated with reference to MP3 file.

Tested on MusicBee ver 3.6.8878 P
Initially noticed when syncing to phone but testing done using local folder configured as virtual device.

Bug Reports / Unexpected Error When Enabling Vertical Tag Editor
« on: March 11, 2024, 08:14:15 PM »
I have been getting the following error recently when switching to a tab that has the vertical tag editor enabled (no error seen if the vertical tag editor is removed from the layout):

Bug Reports / Small bug with 'ignore tracks less than' setting
« on: October 27, 2023, 09:04:22 PM »
Small files being imported into library even when 'ignore tracks less than' (20kB) setting is enabled.
Note that this only happens if the files are:
1. Imported into library before this setting is enabled, then
2. Deleted from library, then
3. 'Ignore tracks less than' (20kB) setting enabled, then
4. These same small tracks will be imported on folder scan.

See this question:

This behaviour was not apparent in ver 3.5.8447 P so it seems it has crept in with a later patch

Bug Reports / Music Explorer: Albums Being Displayed In Wrong Section
« on: October 17, 2023, 10:53:37 PM »
Not sure how big an issue this is but...

In the Music Explorer tab, there is an problem with albums being displayed in the main section when they should be in the 'appears on' section. This seems to happen when the <Artist> field string is wholly contained within the <Album Artist> field string.

This is discussed here:

MusicBee 3.5.8657P
Also tested on clean install 3.5.8667P

Web links set to display in Track Information panel.
In any 'Music' tab this is behaving as expected:

In 'Now Playing' Tab, web links do not display in sidebar:

(Note that this Now Playing sidebar is only available when using either 'Playing Tracks' or 'Theatre Mode' view)

Bug Reports / Time Display Format Inconsistency
« on: September 22, 2023, 01:17:06 PM »
Hi Steven, there seems to be an inconsistency in the format of track time displayed in the main panel (between different views):

Tracks view shows hh:mm:ss
Album and Tracks view (set to Detailed List) shows hh:mm:ss
Album and Tracks view (set to Compact Grid) shows mmm:ss
Album Covers view shows mmm:ss
Artists view shows mmm:ss

Questions / Virtual Tag Function Anomaly
« on: September 10, 2023, 11:03:26 PM »
I was playing with some of the functions provided by the AT&RT plugin when I noticed this behaviour/quirk/anomaly/bug/lack of understanding on my part:

To illustrate this I set up a few virtual tags as per the following image - you can see in the tracks listing that all works well:

But, if I delete Virtual3, Virtual4 and 5 stop working:

If I then introduce another $Count function in Virtual6 (this time nested within another function), Virtual4 and 5 work again:

There seems to be some dependency between the additional AT&RT tags and the $Count function (and, I believe $Sum). I'm struggling to understand the dependency and would be grateful for any insights on this. Or is it a bug or a quirk or am I not understanding something/doing something silly?

(Note: Although I do love a square root, and who doesn't, I am not actually interested in calculating the square root of the release year - just using it as an illustration.)

Bug Reports / Playcount not updating when stopping track
« on: August 19, 2023, 09:31:17 AM »
Stumbled across this purely by accident.

Musicbee 3.5.8631 P

When stopping a track using the method of holding the SHIFT key and clicking PAUSE button, the playcount is not updated.

Note that when using a dedicated STOP button (where available), playcount increases as expected - as it does in every other situation I could think of to try.

Bug Reports / Rating Type Custom Tag Bug
« on: May 16, 2023, 09:43:13 PM »
MusicBee version 3.5.8509 P

When displaying a custom tag of type 'rating' in the main panel all seems to work as expected, i.e. you can click on the stars to set the rating. However this field does not then work when used in criteria in auto playlists or playlist mixers.

It appears that clicking on the stars in the main panel sets tag values of 1 to 5 (1 for one star.....5 for five stars) but, when using this field as criteria in an auto playlist, it filters on tag values of 20 to 100 (20 for 1 star.....100 for 5 stars).

Note that if the values of 20 to 100 are manually entered via the Tag Editor window then the correct number of stars are displayed in the main panel and then any auto playlist using this field as a criterion contains the expected results.
