Problem when only some files have info for tag


#1

Hi all, this is my first post.

I've just installed Mp3Tag today, and I'm trying to tag some files using the "Convert/Filename-Tag" dialog. Some of the files I want to tag have comments. Unfortunately, if I select a group of files where some don't have comments, Mp3Tag doesn't want to tag any of the files.

For instance, if I select only:

Beatles\Ultra Rare Trax\07 - Misery - [Take1].mp3
Beatles\Ultra Rare Trax\08 - Norwegian Wood - [Take 4].mp3

...then %artist%\%album%\%track% - %title% - [%comment%] works fine. But if I select:

Beatles\Ultra Rare Trax\05 - I Am The Walrus.mp3
Beatles\Ultra Rare Trax\06 - Leave My Kitten Alone.mp3
Beatles\Ultra Rare Trax\07 - Misery - [Take1].mp3
Beatles\Ultra Rare Trax\08 - Norwegian Wood - [Take 4].mp3

...then Mp3Tag won't tag any of the files.

Is there any way to get Mp3Tag to bypass the uncommented files? I don't want to have to perform separate tagging operations, because I have over 20,000 to tag. Any help/advice much appreciated!

You can use the Filter F3 to filter for [ and invert the result for the second pass.

Kind regards,

I'll give that a go, thanks!

(update) That works great. Thanks again!
