If on V2.49 I edit a field containing "\\" in the mail panel, Mp3tag changes "\\" to ", " and ALT+T shows the field has been split.

This is HIGHLY UNDESIRABLE e.g. causes this:

I really cannot see why Mp3tag interprets a pre-existing \\ as a request for a field split. Please would it not do so, and thereby preserve the \\ unchanged . On an option, if necessary.

Thanks.

How should it know that it was "pre-existing"? That gets messy trying to figure out what existed prior to editing a field.

The option should be to allow users to designate a different character string to be used for splitting fields.

The fact it was present before the edit.

Agreed, esp. where there's a mixture of preexisting and newly entered.

And no character string to be used for splitting fields.
