Mp3tag v2.91 released


I've just released Mp3tag v2.91

With this release, I've implemented a long-awaited feature: the ability to copy individual fields via the extended tag dialog at Alt+T. Just select the relevant fields you want to copy, right-click and choose the appropriate entry from the popup menu.

Also, Tag-Panel fields have their default values back. Just better :slight_smile: You can now configure a default value that is set whenever you select multiple files directly via the field configuration at „Options > Tag Panel“. Double-click on the desired field and choose the default value.

I've also fixed a lot of issues that have been reported since the last release. See the long changelog below and definitely get the new version.

:rocket: You can download the new version from

:orange_heart: And if you like Mp3tag and want to support my work as an Indie Developer, I’m happy about any contribution

Have a good time and take care
