Simple TXT Album description template

Hi i've been messing around with the export configs and i have made my own TXT one for album descriptions. I''m posting it here in case someone wants to make use of something similar or anyone has sugestions to improve it :slight_smile:

It's based on Nano's NFO_dano__simple_design (/t/3978/1

To install go to the Export menu in Mp3Tag, create a new config, edit it and copy paste the code here, then edit to customize if you like and there you go :slight_smile:
