I really like some of the functions of this program but some things are confusing. Firstly, I can't directly click into the main panel and edit the tags such as genre and genre category. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if this is a glitch. It's not just those tags. It seems like it won't let me directly edit anything. If I right click on the tag I'm trying to edit and then hit edit it just pops open that box that appears in the bottom and then I must find the area I'm editing which I think is kind of a hassle. and Secondly, what my question was really about is that it won't let me put in my own genre category because it won't let me edit directly. For instance I want a song to have the genre of folk rock but I want the genre category to be Folk instead of rock but it always appears as rock on it's own in the genre category. Is there not a way I can edit these things directly because if not then I'm just gonna have to find something else to use.
