Remove Genre (Again!)

Post by MIDIManNI »

I know this question has been asked but NONE of the answers seem to "cure" the problem...

IWhen I am adding info to mp3's, The GENRE Tab has far too many GENRES and I would like to delte a lot of them and just keep certain ones.

I have tried Bex's script in MM4 and it does not work.

Any way to solve this?

Are you trying to delete "unused genres" or some that are also used but undesired?
Are you talking about multi-genres within a single track?

Have you tried removing them individually from the tree?
Or, click on Entire Library > click on Genre column header > find undesired genres > select > properties > remove genre(s) (only works on multi-items if undesired genre(s)
is in a multi-item list that is the same for all tracks selected).

Thanks MMFrLife but how do you readd a genre if you mistakenly delete it?
