Name suggestions in Track Properties

Post by Bookman »

Gentlemen,

How do I prevent MM, not from suggesting a name in Track Properties, but from actually inserting it, so that if it is wrong it needs to be deleted.

Thankyou

Not sure what you mean. You can disable Infer File Properties under Tools > Options > Library which will prevent MediaMonkey from auto-guessing empty tags the first time files are scanned in. Otherwise MediaMonkey only displays what has been saved to the tags already.

You can use Tools > Auto-Tag from Filename at any time to get tags from folder/filename values (what Infer File Properties does automatically): http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... lename/4.0

Sir,

When I paste say first Name Boris into the Artist: box, in Track Properties, Alexandrov immediately choiceless follows, which must be deleted so as to be replaced by Arapov; but if I simply type Boris, then I can down arrow choose. In short: I wish no auto-guessing.

Thankyou.

This can't be disabled (and yes I dislike this too).

auto-guessing is a pain.
auto-guessing has to be acepted- and you then might try and edit the field - that is if MM will allow you.
auto-guessing annoys me so.

It would be fine it it only showed in the drop-down, but the fact that it auto-completes is something that frequently gets in the way and without proper attention of user could lead to incorrect tagging (I often almost forget when copy & pasting into the field).

This problem only exists when trying to enter a shorter value then existing values in a field, once this new value exists the problem no longer occurs.
