to be honest what I do is add the tag "new" to the keywords tag.

how do you magically ungrey (enable) the boxes there? like the one that lets you select "genre" ? or the ones below it?

Yes. Tags and lyrics edited/added while a song is playing won't get saved to the track file until the song is stopped. Not paused. Stopped.

What happens if the track is still playing when MusicBee is exited? I noticed that when MusicBee is opened the track will resume playing. At what point does the tag get written?

1) upon exit even though the file was playing ?
2) upon restart of MusicBee after the song is stopped?
3) some other time?

Ideally this Additional Tagging plugin (forget the exact name) would be best, as it can add tags automatically but as far as I understand it - it cannot just add the tag to the files in the inbox but will add the tag to any file that has been modified, which I'm sure there is a good use for this but it escapes me why anyone would want to add a tag every time any mp3 file is modified.

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.

also the readme hints that tags can be applied when new files are added to the inbox, does anyone know how to configure that?
If you tick the box for a preset, it gets automatically applied.

so there is no way to apply it just to inbox files? the docs says something about applying to the inbox and files that are modified also.

thanks Zak, I'll play around with mp3 tag when I have some time

is there any documentation for this thing aside from the readme? I haven't read this thread as it is quite long.

also the readme hints that tags can be applied when new files are added to the inbox, does anyone know how to configure that?

+1 or at least be able to pop out the inbox

yes.. you replied to my post, which I quickly edited but not fast enough I guess.. Maybe you can change the quoted text to Album: instead of Title: just so that it doesn't confuse anyone, as the Title is used for the song name.

41
Let me firstly admit that the concept of 'dates' in tags is something I don't have a good or full understanding of myself.

the reason I have them is I like to trade live shows.

e.g.

Artist: Grateful Dead
Album: 1983-04-15 Community War Memorial Auditorium, Rochester, NY

However when shows come pre-tagged in MP3 or FLAC (SHNs don't) then there is no standard to how a person might have written the Album tag.

e.g. 4/15/83 Community War Memorial Auditorium, Rochester, NY

ah I forgot that people might not use leading 0s.. I guess it is more complicated than I thought to replace them.



42
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

43
cool I'll give that a try

wow, musicbee is so cool. thanks

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.
