How to preserve tags not to be overwriten


I am new with MusicBrainz Picard. Its a great Tool, but not perfect.

i have a lot auf tracks, that have terrible tags, but the tag “year” is right. MusicBrainz Picard make the terrible tag right, but in a lot of cases the year is totaly wrong.

How do i kepp the year i already have, prevented from overwriting by MusikBrainz Picard???

I know there is thr option “Preserve these tags from being cleared or overwritten with MusicBrainz data”, but it doesn’n matter what i insert here. MusikBrainz picard still overwirte the year. I tried the tags: year, Year, jahr, Jahr, date, Date, Datum, datum, originaldate, but noone of them worked.

What do i wrong? Is it, cause the Tool based on english and i am a german user?

Thank you for help :slight_smile: (and sorry for bad language)

in the current version of Picard, you should be able to right click on the tag you want to preserve and find an option to add it to the preserved tags


Thank you very much. Now it works how it used to be :slight_smile:
