Exactly:  that was what I wanted to say.

Thanks for the possible fix!

Here's the screenshot I promised. This is what I'm using. It's a submenu of the context menu, and the copy/paste commands are at the very bottom. When you select Copy to... it will ask you exactly which tags you want to copy, so you can just unselect any that you don't want to mess with.



Just be sure when you paste that you've selected the same tracks in the same order.

Yes, thanks!

Yet here I (try to) explain why this doesn't (always) work for me:

Quote
So, that's the trick:  I don't want to overwrite all tags in R (= right side of panel).

And I don't see (yet) how to avoid that with 'copy to clipboard'.  
Yes, I can choose the tags.  But I don't know in advance which tags I want to paste/overwrite.  
So then I would have to 'compare' the two tracks myself.  Which would be more time consuming than 'compare tracks'.

So if Boroda 'fixes' the plugin (and I can select/copy/paste multiple tags in the compare window), that would suit my needs more.

note: now you cant copy tag to different tag, you can only copy tags to the same tags of another track. it doesnt matter which row is current when you paste tags.

Strange indeed... ;-) (and that nobody reported this...)

I'm glad I asked :-D

Euh, for feedback:  it works, yet not (yet) when I include Artwork in the selection.

To be more specific:

- When I include Artwork, it pastes the Artwork and everything that is above
- When I don't include Artwork, it works totally fine!  Great!
