Re: Contributing Artist Search Feature?

You can add contributing artists to a field called Involved People (the field is on the Detauls tab of File Properties. You can select which fields are searched through Tools-Options-Search. I normally have both Artist and Involved People checked for search since I pretty much don't care what role s...

Re: Discogs Tagger 5.63 (Updated: 2018-09-07)

XP uses only TLS 1.0 and that won't work with Discogs which, as noted here, uses 1.2. Since Micrsoft no longer supports XP, your chances of it ever being upgraded to support 1.2 are basically nil. There is a purported workaround at https://sockettools.com/kb/support-for-tls-1-2-on-windows-xp/, but I...

Re: artwork per album

You don't say exactly how you are updating the art, but on the Artwork tab of Properties you will see a checkbox in the lower left corner, Apply to all files in the Album/Series. If that is checked when you click Okay the art will be added to all the other files.

Re: MMW->MMA: change sorting of songs on playlists for sync?

Sort the playlist on MMW by Title (or whatever field you want), right-click and choose Update Play Order, sync to MMW, re-sort playlist on MMW by Artist, right-click and choose Update Play Order.

Re: Font too small (and crashing)

Not fine there. Much smaller than the Monkey Groove. White against blue background is always harder to read than black on white background. Not everyone has 20-year old eyes. But if you want to insist on making things difficult for users.....

Re: Font too small (and crashing)

Screen resolution is 1680 x 1050, which works fine for everything but the music player in those skins.

Font too small (and crashing)

The font size you are using in the music player with the Monkey Groove and the Black and Orange Monkey skins is too small to be readable. It is okay in the two Material Design skins.

Also, MM5 (2116) crashes whenever I change skins.

Re: Contributing Artist Search Feature?

If you want the Artist field to have only the principal artist for the track, say Erroll Garner (I'm listening to his newly released Nightconcert), you can add the other artists (say Eddie Calhoun and Kelly Martin), in the Involved People field which is on the Details tab of Properties - use semi-co...

Re: Combining mp3 and FLAC files in one album

You can probably guess why I thought that might be the solution. And it was no trouble. Thank you yarguy. You have helped me find the solution which is that my eyesight is failing. The Album name does differ between the MP3s and the Flacs the latter having no less than three ts in Manhattan. That wa...

Re: Combining mp3 and FLAC files in one album

How did you check it in MM? MM has a useful way of seeing if they truly are identical. Highlight all the tracks that should be in the album (both MP3 and FLAC). Right-click and go to Properties. If the Album is not the same then there will be a blank in the Album field and the same with the Album Ar...

Re: More tag fields for listeners of classical music [#14963]

But using Grouping does not provide the same usefulness as Linked Tracks. It is very nice to be able to click one track to get a whole work to play. If you don't want to provide something like that in MM5, fine; I'll just continue to use MM4 since it works just fine anyway. Another lost sale.

Re: Request: More tag fields for listeners of classical music

About the grouping field. MM4 has a very useful, easy to use, never fails (for me anyway) extension called Linked Tracks. Instead of looking at what iTunes did for this, why not look at what an MM add-on developer did. Send the first track to Now Playing and then all the linked tracks (the other tra...

Re: Wrong track title and time in player

I paid a little more attention to this this morning and here is what I found. 1) If the MM5 player is stopped at the end of a track (using stop after current) when there are tracks remaining in now playing, when the next track is started, the correct title and time are displayed. 2) The previous tit...

Wrong track title and time in player

Using 2113, but this has happened before. In the player control section at the bottom of the screen, the title and time of the previous track are shown instead of the title and time of the currently playing track (using Monkey Groove skin, but I doubt that matters). This leads to some interesting an...

Re: A couple of MM4 features I miss in MM5

I think it is a bug only in the Artwork only layout; at least that is all that is fixed in 2111. In Basic and Advanced, the image needs to be washed out or the text would not show well (or at all) in front of images of dark covers. I'd still like to be able to decide what fields to show in side-by-s...
