Hi folks, I'm trying to save edits made in MP3tag to the original folder from whence the files originated, but to no avail.....it USED to work but I don't know if a newer version may have changed something or what?
It's happening on 2 or different computers that I am using so I know it's not the device itself.
I do not think that this is the correct way to do it.
You can load the files with drag and drop as you described.
Now itr depends where you enter the modifications:
If you use the individual fields in the files list, then the modification is saved as soon as you leave a field.
If you use the tag panel then you have to either press Save as soon as you have finished editing and then the modification is only saved to the currently selected file(s).
If you modifiy, then select files, all your modifications will be lost.
So select first,
then modify in the tag panel
finally press Save.
I make all modifications and then select all the files, making sure they are the new modifications, then press Save.......it USED to save them to the original folder using this method but I don't know what happened.
Here's the interesting part....if I completely clear the mp3tag box, then add the untagged files again from the original box into mp3tag,they change to the modified tags!!
but I can't seem to get the files to stay modified in the original folder..
Unless you tell MP3tag to move files (e.g. rename the filename or folder) the files stay in the same folder.
And again: unless I do not understand your description correctly
then this is still the way that first enters information in the (I hope) tag panel and then on selecting the files, reads the files and therefore discards all the modifications. This procedure has never worked so far.
Could you please try the way I already described?
Additionally, you could check a single file by pressing Alt-T and have a look at the extended tags dialogue window title if you see the word APE there somewhere.
And then see which settings you have in Tools>Options>Tags>Mpeg for reading, writing and deleting.
... and tell us what you found.
