Heya,
as mentioned in this solved feature wish:
http://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=19793.msg118526#msg118526

it would be great if the re-locate function would also work in an album context. Ideally with an additional user defined identifier (although track numbering/alphabetical order should be pretty reliable in a majority of cases...(?) ) in case it was re-located and renamed at the same time...).
Cheers.

Hm, no one else wanting/needing to re-locate whole albums ?
File by file is quite time-consuming... and it's just a matter of fact that in our vast digital libraries things do change location/name/or both occasionally...
Or does anyone have a good trick for doing a relocate on multiple-files pointing to a new location to look in and do a match by parameter (i.e. alphabetical sorting, wild card from the original name, etc ) ?
Cheers.

I found a fix... - Use listFix() software to fix .m3u missing song links.

Thanks Steven!

Could you please consider making the 'relocate file' functionality accessible actively as well through the GUI/hotkey/right-click-menu so one can swap files in a single playlists and/or all playlists globally (without having to delete the one I want to replace first to get to the 'replace file' dialogue).
That'd be swish.
i.e. this:
