I use Tag & Rename and this is the way it work in that tagging program.

If you edit the Artist in a track, it will updated the artist, then if the Album Artist is Null (this means it is blank) then it is updated also, if it is not Null (Not Blank) then it is not updated.

This should work for everybody.

Hi,

Thanks. At the moment, highlighting the Album Artist field will cause it to be populated with the contents of the 'Artist' field. In the future, we plan to make this fully automatic (it was in the past, but was changed because of feedback--see http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=8599 for a rationale why this was changed).

http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=9425 describes the plans for the future.
