I have started to use Picard 2.1.3 extensively to clean up my large collection, but I have a few issues that I could not get around despite extensive search and testing. Glad to get some help from guru users here.
The first issue I have is that I can’t get some (20%) of the albums to load as “complete”, even though I just repeatedly saved them. (Of course the Ignore MBID is unchecked). An example with release 4b370e6c-e6d2-36a5-8c47-5337a2d77d69 (Freak of Nature, Anastacia). The album is complete in my opinion. When I load it it goes straight to the right pane with the golden disc, but it has a purple star and all songs have the green rectangle. Right click->Save, gets all green check marks, then Remove. I drag it back to the middle pane, it does the exact same thing as above (status Album modified and complete). Going through the bottom pane, I cannot spot any difference anywhere. How can I find out what was modified and why can’t it save it properly ?
The non-album tracks “album” is really a nice idea combined with the “Load as NAT” plugin. However it always try to combine all cover arts together. If I drag any ONE song from my non-album directory, it gets a green check mark. If I drag any two or more of these songs together, the first one gets a check mark and all others get modified with the green rectangle. This is because the second one gets the first one’s cover art in addition to its own, the third one gets the 2 before added, etc. Would it be possible that for the non-album track album, the feature that sets the album cover art on each song is disabled ?
Thanks for any help
