I have a bunch of Audiobooks and in the left pane it is sorted by "Artist". It works for most of the files.. I mean usually I will see the artist (i.e. the value from the Artist tag). There is no grouping.

but with some books, it will show the "Album Artist" tag instead, even though the Artist tag also has a value (which is different than in Album Artist)

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it? (to show the artist tag for every album I mean)

MusicBee Wishlist / Comment in Tooltip
« on: May 05, 2022, 02:25:04 PM »
Hi, would be great to have the comment as a tooltip. I found various requests in the forum about long comments... but from what I read and what I can think of there is not really a good solution to it, except if it popped up in a tooltip when you hovered over the comment box.

For it to be effective as a tooltip, the tooltip would need to stay displayed as long as the mouse is not moved, as comments can be very long.

one might wonder what use a long comment is, it probably isn't for regular albums. But when it comes to concert recordings they are oftened accompanied by very long info files with a lot of pertinent information regarding the source and edits, which I and others put into comments, as well as interesting things about the performance like which songs special guests played on and such.

MusicBee Wishlist / My Various Requests

Instead of posting a new thread for each small request, I'm just going to put them here. Hopefully that's ok.

Questions / My Various Tagging Questions
« on: April 29, 2022, 04:30:24 PM »
1) is it ok to tag a file while it is being played? e.g. I select an album and tag the whole album, while of its songs are playing?

2) what would be the easiest way to apply a tag (e.g. a keywords tag) ? without having to type it in every time? I tried the quick tags plugin but that plugin won't run on my computer for some reason.

Is there a way to Search and Replace in a tag field (either using the built in MusicBee capabilities or using that Additional Tagging Tools plugin) to do the following:

rewrite dates in certain formats to yyyy-mm-dd

the source format might be for example: mm/dd/yy

when there is only 2 years it means 20th century, anyhow I'm not against adding the 20 myself to the replacement string.

the key thing I want to be able to do is to capture the yy, mm and dd parts and use them to rewrite in the format e.g. 20yy-mm-dd

Please, please add the ability to drag tracks around in the Renumbering Dialog.

This would be much faster than using the up and down arrow buttons.

Sure this wouldn't make a big difference for the occasional use of the Renumbering Dialog, but some of us have many albums (in my case live shows) we need to rearrange the track orders of.

BTW... Renumbering is called Auto-Numberingin the Hot Key Assignments Dialog.

Is there a way to see a list of recently played albums (not tracks)?

MusicBee Wishlist / Simple Hovering Tooltip Suggestions regarding Album
« on: December 02, 2021, 10:41:25 PM »
Hi some simple to implement, useful suggestions:

1) Mini Player: Display as a Tooltip when you hover over the cover of the album photo, the name of the Album. This is very useful when the cover does not mention the name or for people like me who have lots of live show recordings.

2) the same when hovering over the main program icon

3) adding the album info to the tooltip when you hover over the tray icon

Hi, how can I turn this dialog off? my connection is not always stable and it is really annoying. I would prefer just for it to try to auto-connect. Or at least not show the dialog.
