I've been using this app for years and love it, however many times albums I load will not have Album Artist populated with anything, and when that happens 90% of the time I just want the Artist field to match Album Artist.

I realize it's just a matter of copying and pasting, but we all know that little operations like that (in any app) do add up and can get aggravating when you're doing multiple albums in a row.

I think an opt-in setting for automatically populating the AA field with the Artist value would help a lot in these cases. Or perhaps a keyboard shortcut if that's simpler? I've thought about this for a long time but didn't think to suggest until now. Thanks for reading.

An automatism is not there but you could alternatively use an action as described in the (really) frequently asked questions: https://forums.mp3tag.de/index.php?showtopic=980#entry44389
