It seems like tagging took a big step backwards in 1.8. Long ago I read how star ratings weren’t going to be added because I could use tags to get the same effect. I did that but now when I look at an album I can’t see my “star” ratings because tags are not shown. I spent a ton of time trying to get data displayed like I could in iTunes. For instance, I created “year” tags from 1960 to present so I could find songs from specific time periods (because the Roon filtering was based on album release date, which was not always when the song was released). Now that information is also not visible. I know I can go to the tag view and see tracks there, but that is not useful for these types of tags.
Are there plans to improve tagging features? I hope that this is just a case of features not making the 1.8 release date.
Tagging seems to have been forgotten with this release.
1 - Tags need to display on tracks! Why remove this feature that was in 1.7?
2 - When you click “Add to Tag”, you need to have checkboxes to see if it is tagged or not, like it was in 1.7
I really like the new 1.8, and love to use Roon overall. Though 1.8 has clearly some overlooked things in my opinion.
As for one I prefer how tagging was done in 1.7, it was quicker to tag or remove tags. now it looks more like a complex playlist feature.
The option to quickly click on the ‘tag+’ symbol in an Album helped a lot and is missed now.
Also the option to remove/edit tags in the ‘Add to Tag’ menu. Especially with multiple Albums selected it helped to see there some albums where already tagged for.
