I have a lot of Works for which I want to set the Lyric Language to “[No Lyric]”. Am I right that there is no bulk data update option, and I have to do it manually for each one? Likewise other fields.
Yes, unfortunately this is the case. If I have to update many recordings or works I usually open them all in separate tabs in my browser and update them one by one.
Maybe there is some handy user script around to help with this?
I know the old scripts for this used to unset stuff like the keys and type (when set) so they weren’t great. There might be something better now though - if there is I’m also definitely interested!
@loujin, did you have anything up to date for this that doesn’t unset other fields? If not, is it something you might be willing to work on?
@reosarevok, not sure, I haven’t use that script for some time.
According to the repository history I fixed the key removal early June (version 2016.6.1) but it sure needs testing, and I don’t have much free time at the moment.
If somebody decides to use it, please check carefully the content of submitted edits and warn me if something is fishy.
I had to push a fix (version 2016.10.18) to remove Firefox-specific code
So the script should now at least be activated as intended. I used it on some Poulenc works without noticing any problem.
As usual, caveat emptor, and yell at me on IRC/bitbucket/greasyfork/here if something goes wrong
