I have not been able to get text file -> tags to work. So I created a one file test situation to see if I could figure out what the problem is. When I click File/Add Directory and enter "D:\DriveQ\Q" Mp3tag correctly lists one file j n the rPath column.
The rPath value is: D:\DriveQ\Q\QQ\A Spelling Song For Carol.mp3
Then when I click on Convert/Text file - Tag I give it a file that contains the single line:
D:\DriveQ\Q\QQ\A Spelling Song For Carol.mp3 / MyGenre / MyArtist / MyAlbum / MyTitle
and the format string:
%_rpath%/%genre% / %artist% / %album% / %title%
If I then click on preview it shows:
"D:\DriveQ\Q\QQ\A Spelling Song For Carol.mp3" ->
and gives no error messages
If I click on "Ok" it gives no error messages and it says
Imported tags from D:\DriveQ\NewTags.txt to one file
HOWEVER, the tags shown on the screen are not changed.
The tags in the file are also not changed.
Note that t he file is not read only.
As I was writing this I discovered a separate but similar situation. If I use the tag panel and change, for instance, the album tag and then click on File/Save tag it says it saved the tag, but again the tags shown on the screen and those in the file are not changed.
What am I doing wrong?
Many thanks for any help.
