Hey boroda74,
In the settings panel I have set: Show commands in 'Tools/Tagging tools/Advanced' menu.
Yet I still find all the commands combined under the standard 'Tagging Tools', and not under a separate 'Advanced' tagging tools menu?

(MB portable 2.5.5699, plugin v.2015-03-22-2)

hmm... it seems that predefined 'advanced' menu was moved from 'tools/tagging tools' to 'tools'. now i can't neither place plugin commands to 'Tools/Tagging tools/Advanced' nor to 'Tools/Advanced'. i could ask Steven to fix it, but want to know where do you want to place commands? to 'Tools/Tagging tools/Advanced' or to 'Tools/Advanced'?

Personally I feel it would be good to be able to see the difference between the default tagging tools, and the additional options that became available when your advanced plugin is installed.

Therefore I think I would prefer it like this, adding your 'Advanced Tagging Tools' below the default 'Tagging Tools':

I assume this is not possible, but let's just ask to be sure:

Suppose I have an album (mp3), with all tags nicely filled in, including the performing musicians per track.
Now I acquire a lossless version of the exact same album, but with a better sound quality.

I there a way to copy all tags from all the tracks from the old mp3 album, to the tracks of the new flac version?

You can use the Copy and Paste Tags to/from Clipboard functions to do this

You can also use send to > replace.  Just beware that in either method, any tag not configured in MB (ie not displayed in the tag editor) will not be copied.

Thnx, I am going to try out that method too.
The advantage of the second part of your advice is that in that way you could use this feature to clean up tags that you are not aware of and don't care about.
Great.
