I've been hoping to find a simple means of modifying MP3 tags with new artists or titles, to correct mistakes, and I was hoping that the Text File > Tag command would help me, but I can't seem to get it to work.
I created a test text file with the string:
|MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. LAWRENCE.mp3|MERRY CHRISTMAS, MR. LAWRENCE|
and saved it in the same folder as the MP3 in question. Then I go into Mp3tag and choose that folder as the working directory, then tried Text File > Tag once I had selected everything in that folder, with the string:
as the Title tag is the only one I want to change, from the filename specified.
But a Preview revealed no matching items for anything, and yet the file was right there with the correct name, or is %_filename% not the correct format?
So I run it properly and the file's tags weren't changed, but the first item in the folder had its date/time modified, but all the rest were unchanged.
I then select the file by itself and run Text File > Tag, and it worked. But selecting a totally different file did the same tag change!
I assumed I could just make the necessary tag changes to only those files listed in the text file, but it seems Text File > Tag doesn't work that way.
How can I use it this way?
