Title: Tagging from foobar
Post by: DLiu on 2017-03-19 02:51:50
I am new to foobar. How do I tag from foobar?

1. When I am on "album list", and viewing by "album", how can I select an album for tagging? When I right click on an album and select "tagging", my options are to "get tags from freedb", and various pictures options. I don't need need to get tags from freedb. I need to edit the tags manually.

2. In the course of modifying my foobar's theme, I lost my metadata view. How can I get that back?

3. How can I send an album or a track to Mp3Tag for tagging? When I was using Windows Media Player, I can right click on an album or a track, select "open file location", and it will take me to the file location using Windows Explorer. I then right click to send the album or the tracks to Mp3Tag for tags editing. Is there a similar option that would allow me to edit my tags?

Thanks.

You can also setup a dedicated tab for tagging using the tagbox plugin.  You then select which fields you want listed for editing.

Thanks. I just installed the Tagbox. It doesn't look there are that many fields that I can edit, tho. So far, I have been selecting the files and then  opening their containing folders, and then from the File Explorer I would open the files with MP3Tag or TagScanner for editing. It'd be great if I can tag them directly from Foobar. Is there another component that you would recommend? Thanks

You can edit any field that a tag can hold with Tagbox.  You just need to set it up properly.  There is documentation that helps you set it up, if you need it. http://arash.dejkam.com/software/tagbox/

You can also right click on the file in FB2k, select properties, and edit any field you want, as others have mentioned.
