[F] %_folderpath% column editing fails

bug-fixed

#1

A column with %_folderpath% in 'Field:' refuses to be edited i.e. is read-only in the tracklist.

Help says:

Field
This field is optional. The placeholder of this field is used for editing the content of the field through the file view - if this field is empty, the column is write protected.


#2

Only metadata fields are editable except for %_filename_ext%


#3

Yup, that fits with this bug report! :wink:


#4

So you criticize the help file or missing functionality?


#5

I simply report the bug. The decision as to which of program or docs should get the adjustment is down to the implementor.


#6

I've changed the help topic accordingly with the current Development Build.


#7

I've changed the help topic accordingly

Not confirmed in V2.39o.

It now says

You can use placeholders for tag fields, %_filename_ext%, or %_filename% here.

One fix to the problem would be:
