A big fan of this gem of a program, mp3tag saved me tons of work.
I work a lot with a list of albums and would love to select all tracks from the same album with one mouse-click or so. Other people have also requested the same or similar features in the past but alas there's no such possibility yet.
However, with a little help from mp3tag this could be still achieved, if only we had 'Clipboard' as an output for formatting strings.
Here's how I imagine it. If I could copy the field values of a selected file or files, using any combination of formatting strings like %artist%, %title%, etc. to the clipboard, I'd write an AutoHotkey script or alike. This script then would simulate a right click on a single selected file, copy the album name using formatting string
%album% to the clipboard, send an F3 to mp3tag, paste the string
%album% IS "%clipboard%", have it select all files via CTRL-A and send an F3 to close search field again. And tadaa, all files of the same album are selected in milliseconds
There are already 2 functions which do a very similar job: export files and format fields, where the former uses files as output and the latter uses another field as output. And there's already some "tag copy" context menu. So I guess doing the same for clipboard as output would not be a very complicated development. As a side-effect mp3tag would also have another nice little capability involving clipboard.
What do you think?
I've donated in the past but will gladly donate more if this would be implemented in an easy to use (i.e. scriptable) fashion.
