I've been spending a lot of time with this plugin over the past few days as I'm cleaning up some debris in my tags.  It's really a great tool, but unless I'm missing something, I can't figure out how to replace specific text in the middle of a tag.  For instance, I want to change all occurrences of "Feat." in the title or artist tag with "Ft."  Is there any way to accomplish this search and replace?  Needless to say, I can find and select the tracks that need the change, but I can't, with just a couple of clicks, change all of them at once.  Does a preset for this already exist?  

BTW, the search feature is a really nice added feature.

Thanks.

EDIT:  If this is a preset that you have to add, I request that it not be limited to "feat" but that it could be used to replace -any- text in the tag.  I just came across some tracks that had "Alt Take" and "Alternate Take."  I'd like to make them consistent - one way or the other.

EDIT 2:  Never mind.  I figured out that one can create one's own presets!!!  Very nice feature to this versatile plugin.

Am I overlooking Episode Date (TDRL) in the Copy Tag fields, or can I ask for it to be added?  Thanks!

Why do I get this when I export html from the Library report? Am I supposed to have some css stylesheet in the same directory?

css file will created automatically. error means that either 'C:\Users\Geoff\Desktop\' path doesn't exist or plugin cant create 'Exported Track List.files' folder for some reason. also you can try to export report as simple html table.

simple html table report works ok. I've never been able to get the html report to work though.

"Set tags" ASR preset is not working properly when asked to write "0" into a tag if some of the selected files already have "0" for the tag value. In that case, Preview shows the correct result, but Apply doesn't do anything to the files.

Having problems with Auto Rate. A new, clean, install of the Plugin has no problems but as soon as I set up Auto Rate the player starts failing to update 'Last Played' and 'Play Count'. Its intermittent, only 1 in 5 tracks are updated correctly. Obviously this completely fscks the Auto Rate system.

Latest built of MusicBee and client.

I have tried to work out which settings trigger this but I'm at a loss.

Have now determined that this seems linked to the 'Autorate songs if they are played' setting, which is turned off, for obvious reasons, in this screenshot.

With it turned OFF I get proper updating of Last Played plus Played and Skipped counts. With it turned ON I get unpredictable behaviour, with most updates of these missed.

PS: 'Autorate if played or skipped' would be a better behaviour, IMHO.

@sbt, i cant reproduce described issue, auto-rate works fine for me with any settings. try to temporary disable all other plugins to see if there is some interference between them.
