This is probably one of those “you’re doing it wrong” issues but nonetheless, here it goes:
Even at the very beginning of the clean-up and tag process, my folder structure is already pretty proper, meaning Artist, Album, Year are all already in the folder name. Usually even in the preferred order Artist Year Album.
So, after playing with Picard for a while, here’s a few questions:
When I drag a bunch of those folders over to the cluster panel, why does everything go to “unclustered” first, when in fact everything is already properly clustered.
I then have to click once to move it to “clustered” and once more to “look up” and move things over to the right hand panel where it then starts to look up things.
This seems an awful lot of unnecessary clicking for a rather simple task.
I mean no offense at all, just trying to understand why I seem to be unable to get this done with let’s say one click.
Then, when I drag to folders over with the same album (but not the same release) at the same time, the above process gives me one album in the right hand panel with all the songs lumped in it.
When I do the same thing but one album at a time, each gets recognized properly and shows properly right hand.
Frank Sinatra - Christmas Dreaming (1987, Columbia)
Frank Sinatra - Christmas Dreaming (2019) (24-96)
Those 2 done separately, each gets recognized properly. The first as the 1987 CD release and the 2nd as the 2019 remaster of the 1957 release.
Those 2 dragged over at the same time, then clustered, then looked up gives me 1 cluster with 21 files and looked up 1 album with 11/11/21.
How can I drag over a large amount of albums and get them treated each separately so the various versions/releases get recognized as such?.
