Unless I’ve missed clues on how to do these things in the help and the community forums — and if I have, somebody please point me in the right direction — I have a suggested enhancement to Export configuration. I’m often utilizing multiple export configurations with any given batch of audio files, to export different information to separate files. From my experience, I need to manually tweak the export filename for each file I export to — there doesn’t seem to be any way to have the filename automatically adjusted for different exports. For example, I have separate export configurations for exporting unsynced lyrics, ISRC codes, and various other tags or batches of tags. Currently, I tweak the export filename by hand as such:
%_folderpath%%album% - D%discnumber% - Lyrics.txt
%_folderpath%%album% - D%discnumber% - ISRC.txt
%_folderpath%%album% - D%discnumber% - Track Details.txt
Looking at the list of available placeholders, what I don’t see, but think would be useful in my situation, is a placeholder that represents the export configuration name. For example, no matter what export configuration I’m using at the moment, it would be nice if I could set the filename field to something like “%_folderpath%%album% - D%discnumber% - %exportconfig%.txt”, and not have to change it for the next one I use.
I also notice that when clicking on a different type of export configuration from the one I’ve set a custom export filename for — say, any of TSV, SFV, RTF, HTML, CSV after having previously selected one of my TXT_ configs — the export filename field automatically gets re-populated with “New export file.(tsv|sfv|rtf|html|csv)”, potentially resulting in the loss of my custom filename config string. To avoid that, I have to click on Cancel, then re-open the Export Configuration dialog. How about making it so that MP3Tag remembers the last used filename string for each type of export config, and/or provides a drop-down menu to select a previously-used string?
