When I play a song and try to edit the tags while it is in the playlist, it appears to set back to the previous value after saving. I play the song, I open the tag editor from playlist, then I add a tag, I click save and the tag field appears to set back to blank. But if I open the tag editor from the library area, I see the saved value.

MusicBee can't save changes to a currently playing track until it finishes playing.  It should update the value in the database as soon as you edit it, which is why you see the change in the tag editor.  Basically, the change is "queued", but not actually done yet.

I see why it doesn't get saved instantly to the file, but in earlier versions it worked as it should: I edit the tag, press save and the values are there to see. If I do the same in this version, it is different: If I open the tag editor from the song in playlist, it sets the display back to blank after saving (but it does get saved, you just don't see it in the editor until you open the file again). But if I open the tag editor from the library view, my input gets saved and is displayed instantly, even if the same song is still playing in the playlist. That makes no sense in my opinion.

Thanks for the reply, then it's probably a problem on my side. The problem still exists after upgrading to v. 3.1.6345. I'll report when I have found something.

are you using the portable version of MB and running MB directly on the portable device?
and if so, are the files in the library or only exist in the playlist?
