Searching tracks

Post by ExIT_FM »

Hi Bernd,

Is that possible to search for tracks that has Track Insert transition, Events or even Volume Points? I'd like to remove these options from the tracks, but I can't find them.

Thanks,
David

No, that is currenty not possible ;-)
I even think, it wouldn't really make sense...
...instead may be a plalyist option to remove ALL settings from the selected tracks might be a better way.
That would:
- remove all cue-points
- remove all volume-points
- remove all track events (incl. any track inserts)
- remove all options and other track settings (i.e. special element options)

So you say that, I can add the whole media library to a playlist, then select all tracks and remove all events, etc. Am I right?

Yes, that's what I meant - when I implement the above new function (which actually let's you decide what 'all' to remove)

The new 'Remove All Settings' option was added to the playlist context menu under 'Meta Data...' in the new v4.0.1.15.

Hi Bernd,

I'm afraid that option isn't working for me. I am using folder based libraries. I opened a category, then I selected all tracks. After that I selected the Remove all settings from TAG & Metadata context menu but nothing happened. If I open the track in the PFL player and I remove the Track Insert Event and Volume points manually, it works perfectly, but it takes long time to do with 6000+ tracks. Am I doing something wrong?

Uups, no, there one option I forgot to set to take the new function live ;-)
A new v4.0.1.16 update is available - sorry ;-)

And note, that the 'Remove All Settings...' function does not automatically save all changes.
So after removing all track settings - you might need to save it, e.g. via 'Save Meta Data TAGs' !
