I select all the songs I want to add track titles to and I use the text import feature, and then simply import my track titles.
The track titles in the text file read as I mentioned above: "d1t01 - Song Name" and so on. So this then becomes my track titles for my selected tracks in mp3tag.
All this works great, I am just trying to find if there is a way in mp3tag to remove the disc / track headers in the program, before that I used to take them out 1 by 1 in the text file and that is taking way too long.
Now the situation is: TITLE tag field is set to a string like "d1t01 - Song Name".
So the TITLE tag field contains three informations:
the disc number
the track number
the title string
For my part I would not like to loose the additional numerical informations, therefore I would do ...
Step 2. Split string from TITLE tag field into three parts and fill tag fields TITLE, TRACK, DISCNUMBER with appropriately content.
Create an action group
Begin Actionsgroup Split_TITLE
Action #1 Actiontype 7: Import tag fields (guess values) Source format: %TITLE% Guessing pattern: d%DISCNUMBER%t%TRACK%÷-÷%TITLE% Note: Replace each special ÷ character with one space character.
End Actionsgroup Split_TITLE (1 Action)
Run this action against the related tracks.
Afterwards the original problem should be solved.
If you make the guessing tag field splitting part of the import process, then you do not need to do a second step via action as described before.
Using "Converter textfile - tag fields" you can set the format string right away as you need it.
The format string "d%DISCNUMBER%t%TRACK% - %TITLE%" (without the quote characters) will split the string line from the textfile into three tagfields.
If you do not need track and discnumber you can code the format string "%DUMMY% - %TITLE%" and it will set only the tag field TITLE.
