I have files currently with "ARTIST" tags such as "Artist 1, Artist 2, Artist 3" on files that have multiple artists, instead of the separate ARTIST tags.
I know to convert them into three separate entries, I would open them up in mp3tag and use
"\\" between them in the Artist field. It works as intended if I do them one by one when editing in the main window.
I figured I could create a simple replace action that would replace ", " with
"\\" and that would separate the ARTIST tag into separate entries, but it doesn't work as intended. The tag won't "take" unless I highlight the file and open the extended tag menu and then click OK (after I run the action). When selecting multiple files and opening the extended tag menu, the tags don't separate and I'm left with
"ARTIST: Artist 1\\Artist 2\\Artist 3" instead of the intended "ARTIST: Artist 1" "ARTIST: Artist 2" "ARTIST: Artist 3"
It's a strange bug that could probably be gotten around with some expressions, but I can't figure out how I'd do it. The comma would be the delimiter and the artists needing to be written to the separate ARTIST tags would between the commas. Any help?
