One solution to this is to manually embed .cue to single .flac file

To do this:
1. Add *.cue to exclude in Album List
2. I would recommend to remove tags from .flac file first. Right click on .flac file in foobar > Tagging > Remove tags from file
3. Right click on .flac file in foobar > Utilities > Edit cuesheet > Load > Ok

By default edit cuesheet option is not listed in utilities but you can enable it by holding shift button then do right click or you can enable it in Preferences > Display > Context Menu > Utilities

Thanks for the tip, this seems a good option, but currently i have almost 2.5TB from music in FLAC, WAV, WV & APE (file+cue).

There's any other option?

Hi there,

Well you have the Facets filter button there, you could use that to show only CUE files. Example, click the filter button down arrow and Preferences > Add New button -

Name: CUE
Code: [Select]
"$stricmp($ext(%filename_ext%),cue)" PRESENT

Name: Media Files
Code: [Select]
"$stricmp($ext(%filename_ext%),cue)" MISSING

Likewise you could use the Facets columns as a filter to show only CUE. This way alone with the filter button off, would still show media files when typing for search results on the playlist, until you select something from the columns. Example, in Preferences > Media Library > Facets -

Name: Artist
Code: [Select]
$if($stricmp($ext(%filename_ext%),cue),%<artist>%,)

(Etc, for the other columns)

Otherwise, you could simply exclude all the media file types from the library, in Preferences > Media Library > Restrict to: *.CUE. If you have the opposite in Preferences > Shell Integration > Exclude: *.CUE, you could still drop a folder from Windows Explorer to edit media file tags.

Cheers
