MP3Tag is a great tool, but frankly I'm disappointed about how it deals with audio files that have more than one tag.
I wonder what's the read priority when I have all tag formats checked in "Options->Tags->->Read"? The thing is that it happened more than once (I have all tag formats checked in Tags->->Read) that I have lost meta data when doing my tag conversion routine (Ctrl-S, Ctrl-R), because the tag with the most accurate or most extensive meta data had a lower read-out priority over the one with only few meta data. "Tags->->Save" has the tag I want, and "Tags->->Remove" has the tags I don't want checked.
How can I assure that Mp3Tag always reads out the tag with the "best" meta informations, without having to manually check every tag by changing the read settings in the options menu?
I think Mp3Tag needs an easy access to all tags in the main GUI: Buttons. You press the ID3v1 button and then you get the meta data in the ID3v1 tag, when you then do file actions all meta data used is based on the info in that tag. Press the APEv2 button and Mp3Tag switches to the APEv2 tag and bases all its actions on the information it finds in the APEv2 tag.
For merging what you think is the best meta info of two or more tags, you would use Ctrl-C, switch tag and then Ctrl-V.
Well, I doubt this will be implemented (that's why I haven't posted in the Feature Request forum) because Florian already declined to change the current way of selecting the preferred tags (i.e. moving it out of the options).
So, I just want to know what others think about this or whether some of you even had similar bad experience of this kind. I use to change the tag type of many hundreds of files at once, and really I can't check which tag holds the best meta data for every single one of them! So this is kind of a petition in case there are many other Mp3Tag users who'd like this to be improved.
