Hi all,
I have been using MusicBee on and off for a year or so and I'm still discovering all of its great features. One thing that wasn't able to figure out is how to export the listening history: I would like to do that to analyze my listening habits.
By simply copying pasting from the history tab, I can only export the name of the artist and the track, which is not enough for me (ideally, I would want also dates,  genres, etc...).
I know that there is a plugin (Play-History to Text File), but it does not seem to work on my version (plus I think what it does is to write new plays in a text file, not exporting old history). Any tips for that?

Many thanks!

1. Set the fields you want to export under Edit->Edit Preferences->Tags(2)...tag handling...'send to clipboard' tags (using any delimiter needed for your target application between the fields)
2. Select the tracks in your history
3. Right-click selection->Send To->Clipboard

4. Paste the clipboard contents into your desired application - text editor, spreadsheet, etc.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

I'm not an AT&T plugin expert, but couldn't an Auto Library Report automate this process?
He could even sort descending by <Last Played>, I think.
