Tags - Textfile (window) is a beautiful feature in mp3tag. We need the same feature in reverse direction.
Fewer number of songs (say 10-20):
We can load songs in mp3tag. Copy tags and make conversion (language), spelling correction, etc in an external application and paste the tags back to songs in the same session.
Larger collection (100s-1000s):
We could export "tags - textfile (csv)" with "_path" and make changes and import back to mp3tag (in windows).
But unfortunately, it is not an option in mac. It is another request. I am not cross-referencing that thread here.
Right now, that way we export and import tags in/out of mp3tag has limitation.
Clipboard: is fast and efficient for fewer items.
Windows/mac: limited to one way, import only
CSV: is robust and powerful for larger items.
Windows: supports bi-directional
mac: only one-way, export is clear and import is dangerous
@Florian Please review, this would be easy to implement and makes the import and export of tag open thru clipboard.
Currently, we can open import tags from textfile (clipboard). We need same for export as well.
It's copying different things on ⌘C and dependent on the context you paste: it either applies the tags (pasting inside Mp3tag), pastes the textual representation based on the CopyFormat (pasting to a text target, e.g., BBEdit), or copies the actual files (pasting in Finder).
