Forgive me if there is an obvious way to do this and I just haven't been able to find it.
I'm creating a lot of Action Groups as I work my way through updating the tags in my library.
Many actions (such as trimming white space and adjusting spacing, grammar or capitalization) I need to run on several different fields (typically %artistsort%, %artist%, %albumsort%, %album%, %titlesort% and $title%), but by no means all of them.
I have an aversion to using global tags like "_TAG" lest my actions un-intentionally screw up any other tag fields, like %unsyncedlyrics%, or any comment fields, or any fields used behind the scenes by my playback software that I'm not even aware of.
So when I want to create my own actions, or for example, modify something like the "Title Case" group of Actions compiled by yog-sothoth known as "Grammartron", I have to change all of the included global actions from "_TAG" to, say, %artist% and then duplicate each one of those five or six times (for each applicable tag).
At least I think I have to. Am I missing something?
I wind up with reeaaallly long list of actions when I do this.
It seems the tag field has room to allow a multiple tags if I can only figure out the correct way to separate them. Wouldn't that have the same result as 6 identical actions listed in sequence? Or is this just not possible?
