Three times in the last week I have had a SERIOUS problem with Trout's tagger.
After I hit Update, Trout's tagger has OVERWRITTEN the next track in the playlist with a copy of the mp3 being edited! I don't know how to suggest easily replicating this.
I previously had always used TagScanner (portable) to do batch tag editing.
(AudioShell 1.35 - no longer supported? - allows easily editing some tag fields
of single files through any file explorer/manger ...) Anyway, I started using the Trout tag editor because I could see the display in Trout immediately.
I load an m3u playlist.
Goto to the first line. Hit play to bring up the display.
Hit stop and then the context menu button to bring up the lineitem menu.
Choose edit tag. Edit the tag. Hit Update.
Hit play to bring up the edited display.
Choose the hotkey for "next" to display the next item.
Hit stop and then the context menu button to bring up the lineitem menu ...
Three times after I hit Update and then play, playback failed & Trout moved to the next lineitem - and apparently OVERWROTE the next track in the playlist with a copy of the mp3 being edited - not just the tags - the entire mp3!
I have added the following step to the above routine to see if it keeps the Trout tagger from failing & overwriting. After I open the Edit dialogue the first time, I close it and then repopen it ...
I don't know how to suggest easily replicating this fail/overwrite problem but wanted to mention it ...
