Thank You!  :)
This problem only happens from time to time (about 1X/10)
Here is my configuration in French

Do you have the hotkey set up to COPY the files or to MOVE the files? It sounds like you're copying the files. And I don't think CTRL-R is a default assignment, so you probably assigned it yourself. Which is fine except you may have assigned it to the wrong action.

Select a file and hit the hotkey. Take a look at the window that opens and under the presets field there are  three fields. Above the first field does it show "copy" or "move"? Then check to make sure "to folder" and the "naming template" are correct. If you find you've assigned the hotkey up to copy, then simply reassign it to move.

Questions / Problem with Auto Organize
Last post by Julien on April 12, 2024, 01:29:49 PM   |  Started by Julien
Hello,
I have my new music on D:Temp
My collection is on D:Music/Single
When I validate music from my Inbox, I tag it then CTRL+R to organize it towards D:Music
Sometimes, musicbee integrates it into D:Music but the file remains in my Inbox instead of my collection
Why ?
Thank you

Questions / Re: Move to Organised Folder AND Remove From Library = Possible?
Last post by stewlewis on April 12, 2024, 08:50:57 AM   |  Started by stewlewis
Thanks tjinc this is what I'm doing now, the manual delete from library.
Good point though on the smart filter though I will lock this onto a tab and remove those periodically instead of after each move/copy to server.

Sorry for the confusing wording, yes I use MOVE and COPY to my server:
I COPY those files I wish to retain on my music PC for DJ purposes, to have a backup copy on server.
I MOVE those file for the Mrs to her server folder that she accesses on her phone and I'll never play.

EDIT: PS. I have another MB installation and Library on the server for playing all music and users.

this is a summary of the fields you could display:

Display the direct parent folder:

Starting from the two proposals above, this is a summary of the fields you could display.
Let's suppose the current track is C:\MusicCollection\Artist1\Album1\01 - FooBar.mp3.

Standard Tags
Tag
Content
Example
PathPath to the audio file (without the filename)C:\MusicCollection\Artist1\Album1\
URLPath + filename + extensionC:\MusicCollection\Artist1\Album1\01 - FooBar.mp3
FilenameFilename + extension01 - FooBar.mp3
Virtual Tags
Formula
Content
Example
$Split(<Filename>,".",1)Filename, without extension01 - FooBar
$CutLeft(<Path>,19)Path, without the first 19 charactersArtist1\Album1\
$RSplit(<Path>,\,3)Grandparent folderArtist1
$RSplit(<Path>,\,2)Parent folderAlbum1

…but I'd rather just glance at the player and know where the file is playing from.
I am not completely certain if you are looking for a way to display the filename, or where it is located.
Here is an option in case it is the first:

You can use a virtual tag to display the filename without the full path or extension:

$Split(<Filename>,".",1)

You could then use that virtual tag in all sorts of locations.

One way to have it displayed is in the main player panel:
Right-click it and use: Show Track Details on Multiple Lines and set the second line to that virtual tag.
(not all skins support that option)

edit
After reading your post (and the title) a little better, it seems that you want only the path leading up to the file displayed.
For that you can use <Path> or <URL>
To prevent them being unwieldy long, you could use the $Split and $RSplit functions to for example extract only the direct parent folder.

But obviously the best solution is to fix the files that have bad or incomplete tags.
That is what MusicBee is designed for to work with.

I worked it out for the Playing Tracks Element and then realised there is a "Now Playing" element that you are specifically asking about.

So here is the instructions for the Playing Tracks element.
Mouse over where it says "Playing Tracks". An arrow should appear, click that and select Customise Panel.
You should have a window with a few elements listed. Artist, Title etc....
Click the down arrow on one of the blank ones and change it to "Filename". This will display just the filename. If you want the full path change it to "URL".
Click Save.

For the Now Playing bar you need to change the settings for Track Information first. I don't know if there is an easier way but I did it by dragging the "Track Information" element into the left sidebar. Close down the arrange panels window and then mouse over the "Track Information" heading and click the arrow that appears and then "Customise Panel"

Put a tick in the "Show file URL" checkbox and click save.

Now you can remove the "Track Information" element from your UI if you want.

In the "Now Playing" element. Mouse over the heading and click the arrow that appears, click on Track Information and you should now have the full path to the song displayed.

Edit: Actually you can change the Track Information settings from within the "Arrange Panels" window, just drag it to the left, it doesn't matter where you put it and then click the 3 dots button to the right of "Panel Settings".  Click "show file url", click save and then drag it back to the right. This way it doesn't mess up your UI at all.

Questions / Is there a way to show the file path in the now playing window?
Last post by alanevil on April 12, 2024, 04:00:34 AM   |  Started by alanevil
My library has a ton of stuff with no ID3 tags both from my early days of ripping and a lot of recordings of vinyl, things gifted me, as well as an enormous library of classical which for some reason has no tags.  Anyway, if I could have the filepath in the now playing window, maybe as a third line, that would make almost all of these tagless recordings nameable.  Anybody know how to do this?  Every time I try to mess with the layout it gets worse.  I just don't understand how to manipulate the pieces so tell me how like you're explaining to a dimwitted but determined 10 year old.  Thanks.

p.s. I know I can right click and find it in Windows Explorer but I'd rather just glance at the player and know where the file is playing from.  This has happened a lot but I just happen to be sitting at the computer.  This was inspired by a Marizio 12" a friend recorded for me which reads only as 01 m5 pt 1 - unknown artist.  The filepath spells out artist name and single (album) name.
