I was using calibre recently to manage my ebooks collection, and it got me thinking
what if you could edit genres in musicbee the way you can edit authors,tags & such in calibre ?
There is indeed an awesome tool called the "alter tag browser"
the way it works is open a new small window with a table where all tags are shown (alternatively all authors or all something else)
and a column with the number of times this tag is represented in the library, a column that represent the previous value of the tag (blank at start), and that's all.
inside this table you can rename on the fly any tag to any text including the label of another tag
when you close the tag browser, it will then rename all references of said tag to the new text.
what could you do with it in musicbee :
-easily see that "R B" genre has 3 tracks inside & the "R & B" genre has 30, then proceed accordingly
-easily change electro genre to "electronic music" if you wanted
& so on....
here's two pics that shows how it works somewhat :
here you can see I renamed two categories to "SciFi", if I click cancel, nothing is done (of course)
otherwise the software will go through all 31 book instances to change the tags accordingly (note: there will be one less tag at the end.)
