0.9b13 Converter (Album Image) Question

I have a question about how the Converter option "Convert to album images with cuesheets or chapters" works in 0.9b13. I see when you select it from the option list there is a message in the status bar:

"Groups selected items into albums and converts each album to a single file image, with chapters (if supported by target format) or external cuesheet."

Is this Converter option not yet complete? I can't seem to get it to create a cuesheet with WAV files, or create a single FLAC file with chapters either. Is there a list somewhere that shows which formats are supported currently? I was just curious because if this works the way it sounds, it would be excellent. I searched and couldn't find anywhere else this question was asked so I apologize if it's already been answered.

Ok apparently I am a moron. I had my Album Images: output filenames so that it was creating individual files instead of one large file the way it was meant to work. Once I setup the output filename to include all of the files it worked like it was supposed to.

Problem solved.

As far as I understand it the following will happen:
  • If the destination is MP4 chapters will be used for index, tracknumber and title info;  tags for artist and album info
  • If the destination is Monkey's Audio, FLAC or WavPack a cuesheet will be generated, and embedded
  • All other formats an external cuesheet will be created.
This thread has a little more info.

Well after I figured out how to get it working I tested it. On my machine it works with:

FLAC
Nero AAC
WAV
and the one that surprised me was Vorbis. Using, I'm assuming, chapters?

Those are the only four I tested though.

Ah, Ogg with chapters.  Makes sense.  That's cool as well.

I assume WAVE gave you an external cuesheet?

Yeah, exporting to WAV included a cue sheet, I have to say I didn't like the converter before. Now that I'm using 0.9 again, with beta 13, the converter is excellent.
