Mp3tag for Mac v1.8 released

Mp3tag for Mac v1.8 released

I’ve just released Mp3tag for Mac v1.8 and I want to take the opportunity to outline some of the new features and improvements for you:

Copying and Moving Files to Different Folders

This new feature makes file management from within Mp3tag much easier. It comes with support for undo and features advanced error handling, by allowing to stop, skip, or replace on errors with the option to apply the chosen option to all files.

Navigation to Next and Previous File at Extended Tags

Till now it proved to be quite cumbersome to go from the current to the next file in Extended Tags. You had to close the window, select the next file, and re-open it. Direct navigation from Extended Tags simplifies the task of inspecting or updating a sequence of files, where each file needs to be treated individually.

Select Added Files

Newly added files are now automatically selected when loading files. This makes it easier to directly apply actions on exactly those files or simply to spot the newly added files directly.

A few more things

I’ve also added format string histories to all format string fields. This allows for switching between recently used format strings without the need to craft them again or manage them externally. In addition, I've fixed many issues and introduced quality-of-life changes, which are all listed in the Mp3tag for Mac changelog. If something is unclear or sparks your interest, please don’t hesitate to ask.

It's a free update! You can update the Mac App Store version via the Update tab in the App Store app and the standalone version from within the app via File β†’ Check for Updates.

And if you’re not yet using Mp3tag for Mac, you can always get the 7-day trial version β€” only days you’re using the app are counted.

Thank you for reading, your interest, and your support.

Enjoy and take care
β€” Florian
