I have a custom tag named "TrackInfo" where I put track-specific info such as whether or not it's a live version, remix, demo and so on. Most of the files that has this tag populated only has one value, but some (read: more than I feel like editing manually) have multiple.

Example track with tag formatted like this: [take 40]; [alternate vocal]; [5.1 mix]

Question is, is there any way I could sort the tag of those track alphabetically as a batch, using the Additional Tagging & Reporting Tools plugin or something similar? Looking for this result to be unnecessarily clear:

[5.1 mix]; [alternate vocal]; [take 40]

If you're displaying the tag in the Main Panel or Track Information, you can use the $Sort function.

$Sort won't help for organizing values within one file. There's a way to reorder multi value tags in the tag inspector, but it has to be done manually so I'm not sure. You could post in the Additional Tagging & Reporting tools thread to see if someone knows a way to handle it. I don't off the top of my head.
