When editing files all in the same directory, once a tag change on any file in any field is saved, all of the files in the directory disappear from mp3Tag except for the file changed.
I've been using mp3 tag for a long time and I've never seen this behavior.
Could you elaborate a little more on how to reproduce the behaviour along the guiide lines of this post:
Report bugs where something is broken, preventing normal/typical use of Mp3tag.
I appreciate every bug report that helps to make Mp3tag even better, but I kindly ask you to take the following steps before posting.
Before posting a bug report
Install the latest
Development Build and check whether the bug is still present.
Look at the existing open topics in the bug reports category and make sure that the bug has not been reported yet.
Check the files for errors (in case it's file-related). Ho…
MP3Tag Versions: 3.23 and 3.23c
Condition: multiple songs in any single directory (also happens when songs are in adjacent sub directories)
Action: Update and save any single tag for any single song.
Expected Behavior: Tag is saved, no other song is affected.
Actual behavior: All other songs disappear except for the song being updated.
Corrective action: All songs must be re-imported from directory.
Repeatable: Happens every time under the above conditions regardless of directory.
You are right - this is what I would have expected.
And this is exactly what I get.
I tried updates of files while a filter is set - but that leaves the file list as it was prior to editing, i.e. all the files stay there and do not need to be reloaded.
Does this happen on 2 different PCs?
Where are the files located? Locally or on a NAS?
But I don't know why it happens.
So: could you save the current configuration and save it in a safe location,
de-install MP3tag completely with all the settings and configurations,
install MP3tag in a fresh, untouched state
and try the same manipulation with that version.
And if that installation works as expected, restore the saved previous configuration and see what that does?
I tried that, actually. No joy. I didn't restart in between though, so there may have been some ghosts in the machine. I'll do it fully clean to see what it does.
Can you, by chance, indicate what might have changed on your system between Mp3tag working correctly and the described behavior?
Is the Filter field visible and if so, does it also happen if you hide the Filter field via F3?
I just remember this thread:
For some reason some rows disappear from the browser view without direct user interaction.
I have a Windows 10 computer that I use to modify my music collection with 64-bit Mp3tag.
The music collection is on a dedicated share on my UnRaid server. The collection in question consists mostly of CD quality (or better) FLAC files.
I do not use mover/cache with my music share, so no changes are done (by the Server) to the files while they are on the server.
I do not have any…
and this one:
I have a folder set up on my SSD drive and when I open an album folder the files start to disappear like there being deleted then start to rebuild/appear again. This takes 30seconds or so, but very frustrating and slow. I have run virus software, optimised the drive, formatted the drive etc but still no different. I cant find anything on line to point what might be the issue. I have even transferred the files to a different drive and still it does the same. If anyone has a solution, or ideas why…
