Yes, I think this behavior is bad because it is surprising and adds no value. I wasted an hour on this. I can just as easily check the tags, artwork, etc. *after* the music is added to my library as I can when it is in the Inbox. Maybe when a user rips a CD for the first time, MusicBee should warn them of this behavior and what they need to do.
Where is the Preference to automatically have ripped music added to the library? On the CD Ripping tab, I see a checkbox to add ripped files to the Inbox but nothing about adding to the library.
