Agreed, this is critical. I’ve spent a long time tagging notable versions of various live tracks. There are hundreds of these songs tagged. The good news is you can still get to them via the tags themselves. The bad news is when you view an album with songs that have been tagged, they don’t show up there.
You can have multiple tags. Just add the tag to an album by selecting the album, then … , then add tag.
I agree that having the check boxes next to the tag names was helpful. I just tried and I was able to second tag to an album. What it’s really convoluted is to remove a tag from an album. It used to be so simple.
Looking at the album, with all the tracks , you will find all the associated tags undrr the album cover.
Point and hold thr tag you want to remove . After about 2 seconds, the message ´remove tag’ appears. Click on that and your tag is in heaven
The touching/clicking the tag to remove doesn’t work (that’s how it was in 1.7).
The way I found to remove a tag is to select the tag (it will show all the albums with that tag). Select the album that you want to untag (select by touching/pointing and holding) then in the top of the screen, select …, and remove from tag.
Ok, that works, thanks. But that backward method cannot possibly be seen as an improvement over the older method where tags could be removed from a given album rather than removing an album from the tag!
When viewing an album, you used to be able to see tags applied to specific tracks within the album. Now the tags are only at the top. So if my library has 75 live versions of a particular track, and I’ve tagged say a dozen of them as “notable”. In 1.7, whenever I pulled up any album, i could see right away if this show included any “notable” performances. This has been HUGELY helpful in managing the library. Really really hoping this comes back.
Thanks for this workaround but this cannot be the last word here.
I need a method to add and change tags without leaving the album I currently have in Fokus. The 1.7 solution was perfekt. This is a nightmare
I agree, adding and removing tags as been made immensely more complicated. Need the ability to enter multiple tags without selecting “add a tag” for each entry. Previously deleting a tag was very simply and fast.
