Basic Database Editing

Postby PeterCM » Wed May 17, 2017 1:08 pm

Quite often fields like genre fill up with junk entries. It would be nice if you could right click on the junk entry in the drop down pick list and choose remove to delete it from the database.

You can use the Tree to delete entries or edit them to the correct value. This can be done for things like Genre and Artist.

So I see things like genre are using the live album data and not a separate table in the database. As you clean up your music collection the unused entries dissapear.

From the drop-down yeah. It should only show values in use.

Hold on! When I try to delete a genre (from tracks that have multiple genres in the tag), MM wants to delete the tracks! I want to remove the spurious genres from the tag without having to edit each track tag individually. Is there a way I can do that?

The only way I've been able to figure out how to take care of this problem is to edit the incorrect tag to another name, which gets rid of the bad tag. Not a very good solution if there are several disparate tracks involved.
