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.

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Edit tracks in play control

Do you have the "playing tracks" panel visible? When a track is playing that needs to be edited, you can simply right-click on the playing track > Edit and you can edit it. Or you can use a hot-key as long as the track is selected.

I know. And in fact I use it in certain views but in others I don't have the space to put this panel just for editing a song.
I believe that everyone always has the player control visible and therefore adding a track properties command to modify the running track in the menu invoked with the right mouse button would not be bad.

What in particular are you advocating editing? The order of tracks in the playlist?

I hope you understand what I write, I use google translator and not if what I write in Italian is translated correctly.

Let's see if I can explain myself better. I have a play list running and in the meantime I'm updating the tags of other songs. During the playlist, a song starts which I realize needs modifications.
How do I change it if I'm currently working with another song?
The only thing that works, not always and I don't know why, is "locate playing track to source" by pressing the right mouse button on the player control.
However, as mentioned above, this doesn't always work and when it does it takes you to the song being played, by selecting it. From here you can edit but not return to the previous activity.
It would not be convenient to have a command on the right mouse button menu on the player control, such as: "properties of the playing song", so that the dialogue for editing the playing song opens.
It would be more immediate and would allow you to edit the song's tags without having to move from the current activity.

Questions / Re: Blank line with the $IsNull
« on: March 07, 2023, 04:23:37 PM »
I know that putting the command $IsNull this error is not displayed but a space is inserted instead.
Perhaps consider initially posting in 'Questions' instead of in 'Bugs' more often?

This is not a bug.
$IsNull does not create spaces. Your own formula does.
(between {color} and {font})

Just think, I tried everything and thought it was a bug of that $IsNull command. I have not seen the obvious. In fact, once that space was removed, everything went fine.
I'm sorry I made a mistake, I'll try to be more careful.

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

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.

Bug Reports / Highlight existing texts
« on: January 30, 2023, 10:52:27 AM »
I wanted to highlight the songs with lyrics and songs that are only instrumental and songs that don't have it at all, so to insert.
As per image.

In practice, in the track list, the highlighted field changes color.

f the text is present it turns green, if the piece is only instrumental, I insert this manually, it turns yellow and if it is empty it remains red.
It always remains red even if the text is present.

If I insert the text in the file it turns green but it doesn't remain after it turns red again like there was no text but there is.

MusicBee Wishlist / Music explorer and biographies entered manually.
« on: January 28, 2023, 03:36:19 PM »
Often entering the music explorer tells me that the artist does not exist.
It does exist but on itunes they entered the name incorrectly.
Eg Loredana Bertè they write Loredana Berte' and can't find her and so do many others, above all Italian singers or singers from other nations who are not English or USA.
I was born that the discography is often incomplete and with the wrong production year, the reissue date seems to be taken.
Among other things, he often finds photos and biographies that have nothing to do with the artist.
Among other things, being Italian, I like to read the biographies in Italian and therefore every time I have to search by hand for these in my language and insert them instead of those in English.
Having said that, couldn't we have a totally manual memorization of the artist information?

Questions / Re: Playlist
« on: January 27, 2023, 09:37:04 AM »
After my previous post, I remembered seeing an option (which I've never used, though):
in the auto-playlist edit dialog box, in the bottom left corner:
automatically export a static copy

Fox63, it's worth giving it a try, it could do the trick for you: pseudo-tag Playlist + static copies of your auto-playlists.

I've tried this before but it doesn't seem to do anything at all.
To be honest, I don't even understand what that command does.
To be clear, I'm creating classics, 100 songs for each year, and with two fields, year and position, it makes me the rankings automatically.
Just look for the ranking e.g. 1990 in the year field and sort it all with the location field.
Unfortunately a song can appear in several years, usually the next.
I had thought of comparing which classification is selected and with that take the position that the song occupies correctly.
It's probably best to use manual playlists.
I like to try :-)
Thank you anyway.

Questions / Re: Playlist

use <Playlist> or <Playlists> pseudo-tags. i don't know what's the difference between these 2 tags. also, i think that no auto-playlists will be listed in these tags.

Thank you very much.
I've seen these, let's call them variables, but they actually don't give anything if they're automatic playlists. Unfortunately I needed it for that kind of playlist, I was hoping there was more.
Thanks again.

Questions / Playlist

Is there any way to know which playlist a song is in to use it in virtual tags?

MusicBee Wishlist / Subtrack
« on: December 29, 2022, 02:11:49 PM »
Maybe it's a little complicated.
Some songs, like the turn of the friendly card by alan parson is divided into 5 sub-songs.
Usually these songs, if they have not been divided before, are merged into a single track, even by importing them from the CD.
What I wonder and wonder: it is not possible, through tags, to divide these tracks by telling MB at which point of the track to start a certain piece and contextually create the tag for those tracks that will be moved slightly to the right of the main tracks.
Maybe in pop music it's quite rare to have to split tracks but in classical music it would be really important.
