I have ripped a large proportion of my CD collection to FLAC (using Illustrate dBpoweramp software).
I would like to make some amendments to the names of some of the Artists (eg. SORT TAGS: ALBUM ARTIST, and ARTIST). It was suggested that I seek assistance from this forum.
So, one of the artists is named: "Chick" Corea, and another "Duke" Ellington. As you see, I have placed the nicknames in double-inverted commas. This seemed a very good idea at the time but I have since come to regret this action!
I would really like some help, please, with 'undoing' the above mentioned using mp3tag? I probably have around 100 CDs by artists of whom I treated their nicknames in this respect.
Many thanks in advance for any kind assistance offered here.
You have to create an action for each field in which the string might occur.
But the good thing is: you can accumulate all the actions in an action group so that you only have to create these actions once and then you can call them all in one go when you trigger the action group.
For one-offs Actions(Quick) is the quickest (!) way.
If you have actions that you want to use repeatedly, then go to Actions, click the "New" button and create the action group that contains all the indvidual actions that should be executed in 1 go.

Welcome @monsterjazzlicks , this is the place to get the support you were asking for on that “other” forum!
I see you already have an answer from @ohrenkino regarding the quotes. You can do this for any field, but I do suggest you do this one field at a time and make sure it works as expected. You can quickly do an “Undo” if something goes wrong when you do it this way. It may be harder to tell if you try to run it for all fields at once and be too late to undo the batch later on.
