Using version 2.83
In the "Comment:" section, how do I add a default custom name to show up every time mp3tag starts.
I want it defaulted to: for example "MUSIC from Joe" in the Comment: section.
I don't want to add extra fields. I'd like to try to keep it simple. Is it possible?
Thanks for taking the time to read my questions. Hope to hear from you guys soon.
See the help on how to set default values:
If you want to simply see a value, you can set that in the column definition:
Enter "Music from Joe" in "Value"
Yet, this does not save anything, it just displays.
Thank you ohrenkino. That answered my question
I've been trying to recreate my settings for mp3tag because I haven't used it in awhile. One of the settings I want to customize is in the comment section. I want to default "MUSIC from Joe". I'd like it to automatically tag and replace anything in the "COMMENT"section with "MUSIC from Joe" automatically.
I tried looking for
http://help.mp3tag.de/options_values.html but the link is dead.
I'm assuming that there have a few updates since last I used it.
Thanks for taking the time in advance
The feature to set default values has been removed in one of the previous versions.
You would have to apply a dedicated action to write these values.
see e.g. here:
I have a question.
In previous versions I could enter default values in the tags.
In the new version this isn't possible and that's what I always used to give some tracks
my own album-name.
I have stil got older setups of Mp3tag but when I install these the links to Discogs doesn't work.
The message I get:
Failed to authenticate using OAuth (1).
12029:12029: Can't establish connection with the server.
Is there a possibility that this function can be re-introduced in the next …
I read the link you sent. That's too bad that this setting is removed
I really liked it.
Do you think you can show me an example on how to create a dedicated action for "MUSIC from Joe"
I don't want to have to enter it all the time or one at a time. I'd like to be able to add it automatically. Can you please show me the workaround?
Thanks for your time ohrenkino
You would have to execute this action each time you want to set the value - it will not work automatically.
Create an action of the type "Format value" for COMMENT
Format string: MUSIC from Joe
here is the HowTo that describes how to create an action:
How to create a new action?
First, create a new action group via Actions > [Actions] Actions or Alt + 6.
Then, click on the button [New] New and give your action group an expressive name, e.g., "All tag fields Upper Case". This action group can be applied to the selected files after you have added one or more actions to it.
Now, you can create a new action in your action group via the button [New] New and choose the desired action type from the list.
At the moment the following action types a…
Mp3tag v2.90c, you can now specify a default value per field on the Tag Panel via "Options > Tag Panel".
