<album artist> included in Album/Edit section
Please include a field to edit <album artist> when editing an individual album's tags. Unless I'm missing an option, the only way to add/change this tag's info is manually / per file in either the tags matrix for a particular album, or by finding the album in the top level tags page. Thanks!
The idea at that link would be wonderful and would cover the large majority of albums.
Appreciating that there are correct tags for an album, it seems to me that album artist can/should be adjusted to how I think of the album and want it to be found in my own library.
Yeah, that's right. Maybe you want something like http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2739754-automatically-complete-album-artist ?
The reason I'm a bit reticent to add AA editing functionality to the album page is it makes it (the page) more complicated. If you don't know anything about AA then you have to ask yourself the question - what's the difference between these two artists?
Another approach would be to make the Tags panel easier to multi-paste, e.g. select the AA column and ctrl+V.
Hi Dan, thanks for replying.
I see what you mean about AA being updated with a change to Artist, but that doesn't seem to relate. I've moved my library from iTunes to a new rPi install of Volumio. Quite a few albums are missing the AA tags, which I'm in the process of cleaning up so Volumio will display & play properly, i.e. tracks with missing AA tag will not be displayed or playable when searching by genre, but will display/play when approached through Album or Artist (which is not your concern, of course, but just for context).
If AA is empty, it doesn't look like it's updated/added when Artist is edited. Is that correct? That would be sort of a workaround, rather than adding in the ability to edit all of an album's AA tags via a single edit field, as you have with the four currently editable tags.
In that vein, why not make it possible to edit all the common (bolded) tags from that edit section?
When you edit the artist name, if the AA tag is already set, the changed artist name will be used for AA.
Does this relate to when you have a missing AA?
