Mp3tag Version: 2.59a



*** Mp3tagCompleteTags ***
*** Export or backup all tag fields ***



Here is a tool that lets you export all tag fields of the currently selected files


By default it only works if your Mp3tag settings are in %appdata%\Mp3tag
i.e. c:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag\
It can be changed in the settings.ini file.



I) Installation:
  1. Copy Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe to a folder of your choice.
  2. Run it once and follow the instructions!
  3. In Mp3tag go to "Tools > Options > Tools" and add Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe as a tool.
    As parameter add "%_workingpath%" (with quotes)
    "[ ] for all selected files" must be unchecked!
  4. (Optional but recommended) Go to "Tools > Options > Messages"
    and disable "[ ] after change"

II) Then the usual procedure to export is:

for Mp3tag v2.47 and newer
  1. Select all the files you want to export in Mp3tag
  2. Right click on a file and select "Tools > Mp3tagCompleteTags"


for Mp3tag v2.46 and older
  1. Select all the files you want to export in Mp3tag
  2. Execute the action "Export#Generate"
  3. Right click on a file and select "Tools > Mp3tagCompleteTags"


Now the export dialog should be opened (if not open it with [Ctrl+E]) and you can use these export configurations:

002 csv tag dump
export all tag fields to a csv file
002 csv tag dump utf-16
export all tag fields to a csv file tab delimited

002 html tag dump
creates a html table of all tags

002 html tag dump (frames)
creates a html table of all tags with ID3v2 frame names in the header columns

003 txt tag backup
export all tags to a text file which you can reimport with "Convert > text file - tag"
The matching import string will be saved to the file 00 ImportString.txt

003 txt tag backup (per Folder) (check [X] One file per folder)
export all tags for each folder to a text file which you can reimport with "Convert > text file - tag"
The import string will be saved in the last line of each file.

Some additional files are also created in the data directory:
AutoColumns.ini
AutoColumns.Frames.ini
Two columns ini files that contains all tag fields. You can load them at "View > Customize Columns... > Utils"
Save your current columns settings first if you want to be able to restore them.

Auto-usrfields.ini
A tag panel ini file that contains all tag fields. Replace the original usrfields.ini with it to get all tag fields in the tag panel

Attached File  Mp3tagCompleteTags_v2.3.rar ( 322.9K ) Number of downloads: 856



* Thanks to DetlevD for his export scripts that I used as template

It seems you did not execute the tool in its folder. (Step 2)
You just have to run it from its folder without any parameters. You will get an installation message and a report if it was successful.

Indeed, I skipped step 2. Sometimes I kinda believe I am smart enough and don't read carefully this kind of instructions. That will teach me a lesson wink.gif

By the way, I think this topic could be pinned or dano's tool integrated to mp3tag (just my 3 cents opinion).
