I did a quick search in the forums and couldn't find a thread addressing this. Apologies if this is well known or has already been covered.
The issue: I am trying to use a text expander / macro tool called Keyboard Maestro, in combination with an Elgato Streamdeck, to add automatically add comments in Mp3Tag. Push a button on the Streamdeck, Keyboard Maestro types a string of text in the comment box of Mp3Tag.
It works perfectly except after appending 4 or 5 tags, the comments start overwriting themselves at the end of the string in a strange way. It deletes the previous comment and overwrites it, leaving only a comma between them.
It looks like this:
"Comment: Afro, Dope, Broken, Loopy, GrindyBass, ,,,, "
Note the multiple commas at the end are the result of the last tag I entered (GrindyBass) overwriting the previous last tag, leaving only a space and a comma in its place.
Question: Can someone check if the string I'm using in Keyboard Expander is messing with Mp3Tag in some way to cause this strange behaviour?
The string I use for each Streamdeack button is as follows:
This sends " GrindyBass, " to the Comment field in Mp3Tag. It works perfectly up until the fourth or fifth tag, at which point it any additional tags overwrite the last one, leaving an excess of spaces and commas.
I'm probably making a silly mistake but I appreciate any insights the community may have!
Thanks and best.
