Fields/Tags/Translation
« on: March 09, 2016, 07:25:48 pm »



I'm confused about tags and fields.
Back in MC20 I've created a field called "Disco nš". It's visible on the left (all tags), not on the right [all fields (including hidden) are shown]. I want to delete "disco nš", I don't know how.
On the left tags change according to chosen language and that's OK. On the right, fields are language independent. Now, what shall I call "Album", "Artist", and so on? Fields or tags? These are English words and they are the only ones visible on the right. Where are the translated names, those on top of my playlists?
Thank you.

hmmm a couple of versions ago, a friend of mine had this problem using a French translation ... I couldn't figure out why they weren't showing up either.

This was awhile ago (version 18) but what I did was put the UI back to the default English. Opened the Manage Library Fields but chose to show "only user fields" in the drop down box. The fields came up. And I deleted them.

Might not be the same problem for you, but can't hurt to give it a shot. Translations might be wrong, but they shouldn't effect actual function, but seemed to sort my friends issue or maybe it was showing user fields only .. frankly can't remember.

Thank you for your reply. I'm using the last version of MC21 and I tried your suggestion with all possibilities and nothing showed up. No big  deal, just one of those things with translations. As I'm a translator (and MC21 has one of my works) I often wonder about the benefits of using other language than US English. Well...
