duplicate tags


#1

Many (1500) of my mp3 were corrupted by a program that added duplicate artist, title, album, and genre tags that contain bad information. In the tag panel, they appear separated by backslashes (). When I view tags (alt-T), there are multiple instances of each. Is there some way to delete the first occurance of each of these duplicate tags?

If you make a new action, you can set the action type to remove or merge duplicate fields.


#3

Since the redundant fields contain bad information, I certainly don't want to merge them. And the tag contents are not duplicates--they just have the same tag type. When you say "remove duplicate fields", how do I specify which one of the two to remove?


#4

Apparently it will remove the first one. There's no option to assign the order I think.
If you want another order, you can merge first and then delete the redundant stuff.


#5

I've searched through all the help files and can't seem to figure out how to remove duplicate fields. Do I have to type some sort of action into the Convert->Actions dialog box?


#6

It's an action type like Case conversion ...
It's not yet in the help file so i have added it here:
Actions

That worked! Thanks!
