I am trying to the best of my ability to follow two steps of most helpful instructions from two support members, and, while I'm beginning to understand what I'm doing in principle, I still need a little further guidance in actually carrying it off!
This is what I want to achieve:
To produce a text_taglist export of just TWO columns in my list - namely ARTIST and COMPOSER - and for these two columns to be shown both alphabetically, and with No duplicates, which can then be incorporated into their respective drop-down list in the Tag Panel.
I am using the separate mp3s from just one CD in my collection, to keep things simple - for me, that is!
Here is the initial screenshot:
As you can see, I use just SIX Columns, but require only TWO to appear in my Export
After having clicked the Export button, this is what I see, and where I select the text_taglist option.
I then click this option, and this is what I see:
Currently, as you can see, firstly all entries appear in the Artist, rather than one, without duplications
Secondly, the Composer List doesn't appear, except as being tacked on to the track title, enclosed between two [brackets]. This results from the fact that I was shown how to append the composers' name to each title using Convert, which was a featured I wanted. This, of course, is of no use in terms of creating an index of composers' names.
Going back to the previous screen, where the Export screen is open, I did wonder whether clicking the Edit button, or double-clicking on the tag_taglist, would allow me to enter into some dialogue where I would be able to edit the Export configuration, so that only two columns are exported.
But neither the Edit button nor clicking the tag-taglist line would open up any such dialogue.
At this point, may I emphasize that I have no working knowledge of scripting or otherwise:
I'm guessing that:
might export a single column, that of Composer, and without any duplications?
If that were the case, would it simply be a matter of adding on the same script, but substituting 'artists' and 'artist' respectively?
Even if this were something like the 'final solution' where do I include this script, and what moves to follow, to get there.
I feel I am getting closer, and hope that, with the help of two such experts like yourselves, I might one day achieve my aim. Many thanks, in anticipation, W
