Drag'n'drop "add directory"


#1

How does one drag'n'drop a directory from Explorer such that it adds to the file list in mp3tag (like "add directory")? Here the cursor shows [+] but always replaces rather than adds, regardless of modifier keys.

Thanks.


#2

Hold down CTRL-key while you drop it.


#3

Excellent - thanks Dano.

Suggestions for improvement: a) mention this in Help :sunglasses: have the cursor shape show the difference between replace and Add.


#4

Dano, is there also a trick to getting just the selected file(s) from Explorer into mp3tag? Here mp3tag opens all files in the same dir and sub dirs.


#5

No that's not possible. At least there is no clean way.
You could create a playlist with the paths of the files - that can load single files. But that's not really comfortable.
If somebody wrote an explorer shell extension that creates a temporary list of the select files and sends it to Mp3tag it would be nice.


#6

Thanks.

Other commands that would help mp3tag toward being a good playlist editor are Delete, Move up/down and Copy file list items.


#7

Following on from this, is it possible to drag n drop multiple folders into mp3tag in one operation? Just say I want to open 50 out of 100 folders. Now I have to drag one at a time or use "add directory" one at a time, 50 times. Is there an easier way?


#8

No multiple folders.
But you also can put the folders in a playlist and load it.


#9

Drag'n'Drop of multiple directories is now possible with the latest Development Build. Just hold down the [Ctrl] to add them to the file view.

Best regards,
