Drag and drop to trackboard of media data editor

Post by hdradio » 26 May 2015 21:33

As I have told you in past I am using MusicBee for organizing my media library.
There are times that I want to add cue (Cue in, out, next) points to some tracks.
I don't want to load PFOA for just a simple task and I 'd like to use Media Data Editor.
I wish I could drag and drop a file to MediaData Editor's Trackboard. Unfortunately it does not accept the files. If I drop them from explorer it works.
The problem might me to MusicBee but I 've tested and I can drop to VLC, Winamp, XMPlay and other media players. Even PFOA can accept files from MusicBee but not Media Data Editor.
Can you do something for this ?

Yes, I'll take a look what clipboard format MusicBee is using and why it works in PFOA...

You can find a new version of the ProppFrexx Tagger here:

This should fix the Drag&Drop issue related to MusicBee!

Some more wishes about media data editor.
1. Is it possible to save the trackboard column positions and chosen columns instead of using the defaults each time the application starts ?
2. Can I hide the web browser if I don't need it ?
3. If I open a folder that contains some playlists, it loads them to a new tab. I then drag and drop a playlist to the trackboard, but it does not accept that operation. It this normal? (I can load that playlist from "Load from playlist" inside trackboard).

to 1. and 2.: Yes, that sounds possible, I'll try to get it one for the next release.
3: I'll also take a look, but today the trackboard is designed to keep references to audio files instead of playlist files.

Thank you.
I noticed also that tooltips are shown even if I uncheck "Show tooltips" checkbox.
