This is not a question, but an answer.
(sorry for being off-topic ;-)

But a while back somebody mentioned/complained/asked about how MusicBee handles it when you have set a symbol under 'prompt' in track details, and the tag is a multi-value tag that is set to split into rows.
In that case only the first entry will have the symbol in front of it and the other entries won't.
Which I agree is not optimal and can look weird.

(let's hope the member that asked about this reads this)

Under 'prompt' enter the symbol that you desire.
Then under 'fields:' set your tag, but surround it using the $Replace function to replace the semi-colon with a semi-colon and the symbol of your choosing.

That would look something like this:



And would result in something like this:

That might be a good idea.
I tried to find the original question so I could reply to it but I couldn't find it back.
The person who asked about it probably has the same chances on stumbling upon my answer here, or in the Tips & Tricks board.
Your decide?
