for some reason , most likely operator error , I've no presets , just a blank field .

Hi All , Back again .

Sadly the solution isn't permanent .

every time I open mp3tag the genre fields are blank .

this issue is perplexing to me .

when I open mp3tag the drop down list in genres is blank .

I can add user defined genre BUT they do not show when editing tags .

typing in a genre works however this is a tad redundant :frowning:

So, what do your settings int Tools>Options>Genre look like?
Have you added any genres there?

You have to use the tagpanel to see your user-defined genres, not the extended tagpanel as you obviously do.
