while not rejecting the above, everyone does realise you can organise files with tags in MB using Tools/Organise Files or right click/Send To/Folder (Organised)?
or alternatively in the library preferences have MB automatically organise your library
"Send To Folder (Reorganize)"... yep, that works just fine. Had not tried that as the name of the function didn't seem likely to produce the results required.
That is the real problem! Most users that switch to MusicBee didn't know that if they want to Rename
a file they should Organise
Or if they want to do it with the (tag) Editor, they should edit the location
line in the Properties
It's completely deceptive, isn't it
IMHO, that it's not an intuitive
and expected solution
That's why there are more and more posts on the forum concerning the renaming and organizing functions (there is no an easy way to Capitalize the Filename as you can do with one of the the Tagging Utilities...).
I like the Organise Files Tool a lot as it allows to manage multiple files quickly, but it's not the point. I strongly recommend to redesign the current Editor in a way how it is done in Quinntessential Media Player (the project hasn't been actively developed for 3 years
1. The first step would be to change the current right-click 'Edit' command with 'Edit Tags and Filenames'
(with F 2
as default shortcut),
2. then create a separate 'Rename and Organise File/s' tab
with easy accessible options and settings.
3. There should be predefined renaming patterns with different Placeholders
4. and Capitalization options
accessible via expandable menus
, like the the one that can be found in Quintessential Media Player or Tag Scanner.
Compare how it is solved in Tag Scanner, which also combines tag editing and renaming functions:
There are more and more interesting proposals in the Wishlist section on the forum, but IMHO enhancing the GUI to make it more intuitive and user-friendly when it comes to (in fact basic) renaming functions should be one of the top priorities.
When it is done the right-click menu would be simpler, more intuitive and powerful: Send to/Folder(Recognize) entry could be removed then.
