I like to see the albumsize in the mainpanel under an album.
In the editing-panel I can see the size of the complete album.
If I set the size in the mainpanel, I only see the size of the first track, when I click on an album.
How can I edit the mainpanel to see the albumsize?

I know the topic is over 2 years old, but i have the same problem and can't fix it. Is it possible to show the size of the whole album instead of the first song (5,9 MB and 9,5 MB in the example below)?

It isn't possible. MusicBee only gets tag values from individual tracks and doesn't really have any concept of calculating values across an entire album.
Exceptions are places like the status bar, where MusicBee has a preset output format.

There are other threads about this. I'll see if I can find one.

I just noticed there is a calculated Album Duration tag. But not one for album size.
So it might be an easy addition if you were to ask nicely on the Wishlist forum.

-Edit edit-
I found the recent thread I was thinking of, but it doesn't include any more information than I've given here already.

I know I've made a post fully explaining this topic in the past with proper pictures 'n all, but damned if I can find it, and 2020 being what it is I can't remember if it was 6 months or 2 years ago.  :-\
