Description Of Issue

Editing Albums. I have a large amount of flac file bootleg downloads with varying amounts of metadata in the files. I try to edit the information so I can find things again when I want to listen. I do all of these edits on my computer using your controls. Often after I have renamed the album and the artist and saved every thing, I reopen to make another edit and all of the first edit is removed. There’s gotta be a better way?

I also have many vinyl lp’s that I have digitized. When the official release has bonus tracks, you can’t identify my record so I have to copy image location on Amazon to get the lp image.

Often when I copy and paste from text documents & try to paste into one of your edit boxes, they won’t paste?

any solutions would appreciated - I really think the edits should not go away when you fix track groupings on the same album & when you merge albums, if data has been changewd on one off them it should stay changed when they are merged. no roon makes you do it all again?

I would suggest doing the edits in the files themselves. Use a good editor like mp3tag.

Yup, best to edit the metadata yourself.

However, I do agree that some of the ‘tools’ or lack thereof (such as ability to cut and paste) are counterproductive at best. And I still cannot understand why that large editing screen just sits in the middle of your screen, without the ability for it to move. It really needs to ‘float’ (is that the correct computer jargon term?), so that people can see the information they want to edit that all too often lays under it.
