Drop-down menu to choose any tag...


#1

This is the most important feature request for me:

Often I change items in id3v1 and 2 tag and then I change long names in id3v1 tag only*. I must open Setting/Options and unmark id3v2 tag for read/write/remove. Then I must re-read all files and it's not all, when it's done, I must open other folder without mp3 files and re-enable id3v2 tag options because all changes would be lost (if it would be done before I close changed mp3s). And - sometimes I may forget to restore/re-enable id3v2 tags and I may save just id3v1 tags for future songs.

It's very annoying, "danger" and inconvenient.

    • e.g.:
      id3v2 tag - very long name
      id3v1 tag - very long na
      ...and I want this:
      id3v1 tag - very long n.
      ...or:
      id3v1 tag - very long...

Therefore I suggest this:

Drop-down menu (next to buttons) with option to use these id3 tags (read-show/write/remove) with these entries:

  • all tags/versions
  • ID3v1 only
  • ID3v2 only
  • APE only

After one entry would be chosen, all files should be re-read automatically.

Alternative realization: show 3 toolbar buttons [v1], [v2] and [A] - when button would be pressed all options (read-show/write/remove) would be enabled, if not, disabled. But I prefer first solution.

It would be very easy to use and very, very useful.

This is the only "critical" thing in Mp3Tag, I hope not for long, then it would be perfect. :music:

Another (easier) way how to implement:

  • add new menu item "Use tags" (open/save) with subitems:

  • all tags/versions

  • ID3v1 only

  • ID3v2 only

  • APE only

It's all existing features, so I think it would be very easy to implement, it would be very useful for many users (see another topic...), so please think about it. Thanks.
