Indicate Lyrics tag
I recently discovered the awesomeness of foobar2000 and have a custom setup that I love. I'm using the NG Playlist view and Quick Tagger for a star rating system (with hot keys to set a song at any rating quickly).

I'd like to add another column to the playlist view to indicate whether a song has lyric tags in it's metadeta without showing the lyrics themselves. I'd like to customize it so it shows an arrow (►) if it does and a blank space if it doesn't.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the quick response, and for the wiki link!

I have one more question. A lot of my songs don't have the indication, but lyrics show up in the lyrics panel. I'm sure it's due to the "UNSYNCED LYRICS" metadeta tag, but I was just wondering if this tag would show up on an iPod. I was able to see lyrics on my iPod Video a long time ago and recently purchased an iPod Classic, 160 gig. I'm hoping at least the "LYRICS" tag will show up, and would appreciate the "UNSYNCED LYRICS" tag showing up in case there is no "LYRICS" tag. It's not that much of a bother if the lyrics don't appear though.

You can accomodate both like so:
$if($or(%lyrics%,%unsynced lyrics%),►)

A quick search suggests that iTunes/iPod use UNSYNCED LYRICS.
