Re: Making Comments viewable in layout

There are 10 custom fields availalble, managed through Tools > Options > Library > Fields . One or more of those could be devoted to "Shortened Album Name" or "Album Category", which can then be added to the main list panel ( Right click column heading > All Fields > Custom ) an...

Re: Making Comments viewable in layout

If this helps... I often use comments in order to shorten album names. So phrases like "Remastered"; "Deluxe Edition"; "Vinyl Rip" are in my comments field. As Lowlander points out this can easily be added to the columns AND can even be sorted. BUT As Peke mentions, it ...

Re: script to auto delete based on a custom tag

Hi Ian, You mentioned about putting "for car", "for tablet", etc in the custom field. I got lost how that identifies which songs you like and which ones your wife likes. Hi GLRider, For my wife's selection, we used the Music node with everything sorted by Album Artist then Album...

Re: script to auto delete based on a custom tag

Hi GLRider, Not certain I would go that route. I just use Custom field 7 to mark tracks I like and Custom field 9 for my wife. You can then put - for example - device indications in these fields e.g. "For Car"; "For Phone"; "For Tablet". Then create a "Collection&q...

Re: Genres

Hi Mario, one way to get a (printable) list of your Genres. 1). Using the File / Manage Database menu option, create a backup of your MMW5.DB and note the location of your backup. 2). After installing DB Browser for SQL Lite, open your backup copy of the MMW5.DB e.g. MM_20240117123701.DB for the bac...

Re: Genres

Hi Mario, a couple of cases I often use. Select the Entire Library node in the left hand area and then Genre node beneath this. Case 1: Select (for example) "Electronique" so it is highlighted. Press F2 to edit and correct to "Electronic" and press enter. Check the status bar as ...

Re: Migrate from MMW4 Gold Win10 PC to MMW5 Gold Win 11 PC

Hi, It sounds like you have both the Windows 10 (MMW4) and Windows 11 (MMW5) PCs available. Perhaps they are on the same network? In this case, you might want to take a slightly different approach! I would spend a bit of time getting to know MMW5 doing things like: 01). How to backup / restore the M...

Re: Applying Tag Fields During Rip of CD

Hi Dazed Oblivion, As an active user - like you - I find some of the subtle differences between MMW4 and MMW5 a little frustrating! However, if you have a MMW5 license, I understand it covers you for using MMW4. Or, you may have a license for both. I frequently run both MMW4 and MMW5 - in my case on...

Re: Statistics shows a difference between Library and Played - but all Have been played...

For more detailed "statistics" including a list, you may want to use an Add-On / extension such as Magic Nodes. Under Magic Nodes, you will find a "Playing Statistics" node with numerous choices e.g. (Complete) Albums / Series that never played. The add-on is from Zvezdan. I reca...

Re: MM5 not showing new tracks after rip

Ian, Yes, closing and reopening MM will reliably show the missing last track. In some cases, simply opening another All Tracks tab will show it. I am confident that MM has taken in the last track and added to the database, there is just some sort of problem that temporarily prevents it from being i...

Hi Peke,

Ticket #6660 and associated debug view log may help. It seems to me that these may be the same issue / error.

Re: MM5 not showing new tracks after rip

All ripped tracks show in the file list *except* the last track. So having the last ripped track not show in the main file listing is a minor problem and is manageable, but in the absence of persistence and patience could be seen as a product defect by new users. Hi Matt, Hi Matt, I have also seen ...

Re: Applying Tag Fields During Rip of CD

Hi Dazed Oblivion, Often you are "working" with the library view of the tags for a particular file. So it is important to "synchronise" the library view of the tags back to the actual file. Try having a place for new files / albums and Rip to this location and tag after this rip ...
