Thanks for the fixes you made, it's now working well. I'm curious about the right-click menu if it's meant to have the lesser but maybe more common options than what it shows in the Tools menu?

@Mafios, i agree with you.

@All, which context menu items should i leave in context menu on reducing their count?

-----------------------

1. Critical bug fix: some plugin windows (e.g., ASR) weren't shown at all if the "Use MusicBee font" option was on.

2. Minor UI improvements.

EDIT:

3. ASR preset names/descriptions typos are fixed. you might want to re-install predefined presets.

I meant if the right-click menu is meant to already have less options than the Tools menu at the moment. Because I'm not seeing certain options there like I used to in previous versions.

In fact, after just updating to the most recent one, both Swap Tags and ASR options are gone from the right-click menu.

I don't find the right-click context menu over crowded. However, the ones that I use the most and would not want to see removed, are
Copy Tag...
Swap Tag...
Change Case...

@phred, I've already removed the 'swap tags' item. Okay, I'll restore it.

ahh. misunderstood you. yes, the context menu contains only commands that are meant to be mainly applied to selected tracks, e.g., all tag backups (except for tag history) are removed from it, or LR is removed. LR can be applied to selected tracks, but that's not the main purpose of this command.

if i understood correctly what your issue is, you can't edit predefined LR presets, but you can copy them and edit the copies as you want.

2) is there a way to just have album covers on the page for example side by side

not sure what you mean, mockup could help. try to edit copies of 'cd booklets' or 'albums and tracks' presets.

it wont let me edit anything in the presets, also i have a mockup image but i cant attach it here. if you imagine in itunes (dependinh on the view selected) you havethe album covers side by side with name underneath, so you its very visual rather that listed tracks and album.

what i am trying to achieve is to be able to print the cover art and names (Not tracks or anything else) where you have 3/4 album covers on the same line when printing, however it would only work with a pdf i believe.  does that explain it a little better?

also when i played around with exporting it would not show the image, just shows a musical note, and thats on the cd booklet and album and tracks, the preview dont match the export file either

Sorry for not replying earlier, boroda. I didn't mean to cause you extra work, but thank you for restoring the Swap Tags function to the context menu.

I see. I didn't know such changes were being made as I was updating and thought it was some kind of issue.

Besides the ones suggested earlier, I like to have the ASR option again.

So for some reason it seems like the Copy Tag (clipboard > basically any field) featureu seems to ignore my line breaks, and i'm not sure why. I've tried to copy tracklists manually and it still won't work, so this definitly doesn't have to do with myescrewing up on my end with notepad++ and my macros to copy tracklists from VGMdb or something. It's something to do with the copy clipboard to tag option and i have no idea what it is, it just stopped working one day and the next. I tried reinstalling the plugin but it still doesn't parse them properly.




It keeps propagating all different lines as just a single one, as you can see here.

Can you post a screenshot of what you have pasted in notepad++ using 'Show All Characters', like this?:

So you have CR (carriage return) missing.
That's why AT&RT will consider the input as a single line.

You should probably be looking at how you have setup your macro's to copy text to the clipboard.
