Add me to the list of users who would like to add tags to the panel on the left side of the screen.
I now edit the composer, conductor and band tags by selecting a group of files, right clicking and choosing Tags from the menu. Since I am usually adding these tags, I click on the add field button and type the field name (Composer) and then its value. After I have added the tags I want for this selection of files (and edited other tags), I click on the "Ok" button. This process requires a lot of keystrokes and is quite cumbersome when you make changes to many files.
I would like to add additional tag fields to the panel on the left side of the screen. Then I could just select a set of files and type the values I want in left panel. Adding and editing tags would be much faster and so much more natural with this modification.
I use MP3 and Flac files and need the Composer, Conductor, Performer and Band tags. (I use the J. River Media Center 11 player and found that it stored TPE2 tag values in its Band field so I add Band tags to my Flac fields.)
Another user recommended MP3tag to me and I really like it. Thanks for your effort in creating such a useful program.
using the link near the top of the page. I then tried it out. The about MP3tag dialog just says 2.35 and January 7, 2006 - no a,b or any other letter.
I looked at all the menu choices and tried clicking and right clicking in various locations and never uncovered the feature I was looking for.
The installation did not create a working Help system so I couldn't look for anything there.
So then I searched the forum for anything that was relevant. When I found a thread that addressed my problem, I read it. Then I commented. On many forums that would be preferable to starting a new thread. And in this case, there was a comment requesting users of the forum not to start any more threads on the subject.
I just now tried clicking on a different link on the developer release page. After installation, that version immediately exited with a runtime error.
If there is a version that provides the customization of the left panel I'd love to try it. Maybe the link near the top of the page was not up to date.
You might consider that someone you disagree with might not be totally ignorant or totally lazy. Sometimes a situation like this arises when something is wrong. Like a link that wasn't updated. Or beta s/w that doesn't work reliably for every user. The fact that your experience was not the same as mine may mean that neither of us understands what the other person has found.
The current Development Build link was pointing to v2.35n (and v2.35m before). So it's not a link which was not updated (one of the more than 4500 who downloaded the latest build would have notified me).
Please first make sure that you've installed Mp3tag v2.35n. You can check this by going to C:\Program Files\Mp3tag, right click on Mp3tag.exe and choose 'Properties'.
If you have the latest version installed please give us a little bit more feedback to the runtime error you were talking about. Does this error occurs immediately after startup or can you see the splash screen. Are some files added to the file list? Which operating system are you using?
A few days ago I downloaded and installed the developer build using the link
That version didn't crash but the help system wasn't working and I couldn't find any evidence of the new tag feature. The "About MP3tag" dialog said v2.35 (NO letter) and January 7, 2006. I tried to install this development in addition to the working 2.34a version I had been using. The new version replaced the old version or made it inaccessible. The help system did not work. So I had not clue what was going on. Maybe the new Tag Panel feature was present but without documentation I didn't find it if it was present.
After I saw the message from Sebastian Mares, I tried uninstalling the development version I had and downloading and installing the version pointed to by the link
near the bottom of the page. This link pointed to a different file than the file pointed to by the link at the top. This second version produced an immediate runtime error crash. I immediately emailed the error log to you. If you had asked for additional information in the error dialog, I would have supplied it.
As described below, I have already responded to your email and uninstalled the second version and instqalled the version you specified. So I can't provide more information without uninstalling the working version and reinstalling the crashing version.
I'm using Win XP on a recent laptop with 512 MB of Ram and a mobile Pentium processor (2.6 or 2.8 GHz.) I have used MP3tag for several months on MP3 and Flac files.
Today, I followed your instructions, downloading and installing another version for which you gave me a link. This version does not produce a crash and seems to operate properly. However, while I can display values for a field I added to the Tag Panel, I am unable to make any changes. I described this problem in my response to your email.
I'd be happy to contribute in futher beta testing for the Tag Panel feature.
My earlier email was a response to the email by Sebastian Mares. I reported my experience without any criticism of you or the MP3tag program.
