    Hi,
    first for sure: Great tool, runs smooth and almost without errors... thank you very much!

    Now two things that came to my mind when using it:
    1) Tagging songs where you do not exactly know the album name is difficult, because you have to search through all available albums until you find the album with the song you want to tag, right? Would it be possible to just search for the song and decide afterwards wich album you want to add it to (if it is available in more than one)?

    2) Matching songs to the correct songs in an album; I experienced, that in my case most of the times the songs I want to tag are not sorted in the correct way to be matched to the responding songs in an album. So I need to sort the songs with the up and down buttons, BUT you do not see a number in the line of the song, wich means that you have to count the lines to match the song to the correct song in the album. Would it be possible to add Row-Numbers in the match field of the mask?


    cheers and thanks again!

    #2 has been implemented and will be available in the next release

    re #1: that would mean that i need to get first all Album Details for an Artist, which could be quite lengthy, if you consider e.g. Beatles or Stones and then just use the albums with the song on it. need to do a test first, how long it will take, before i can promise anything

    Hi, and thanks for your fast implementation!
    would it be possible to make the numbering according to the left list box? e.g. an album has 120 songs in 5 cds you get like six time the numbering from 1 to 20, but in the sorting list you get the numbers from 1 to 120.

    Now, I found some small bug in the error handling, also in the sorting/assignment of songs:
    when you do NOT select a song in the sorting list, and push the up or down arrows an exception is thrown.

    another small bug I found:
    when deleting several files at once in the overview window ( in my case, files on a NAS) I regularly get the message that a file could not be deleted because it is not available (even though it definately is), it is however deleted from the list. But it is still physically available.

    Last not least an improvement suggestion:
    Would it be possible to have another column implemented in the overview: File Path?

    thanks again!

    cheers
