Woops! The upload attachment feature deleted my reply and didn’t upload my file. Let me try this again…
Thank you for the quick reply, Leo. I did a little more testing and it looks like Opus is deleting the info in the Album, Genre, Title, and Year fields on these particular files. It may also be affecting the Track Number fields as well, but these files don’t have anything in those fields, so I can’t say for sure. Also, this behavior is occurring consistently with these files and even when I edit only one of the files at a time. I’m wondering if the problem is due to these particular files? That would explain the seeming randomness if this is only happening with poorly tagged files.
The Title field is the only one that has “multiple values” listed when I select multiple files. All of the other fields have the same information in them, except for the Track Number fields, which are empty.
Right now, it seems to be these particular files only. I don’t know how they were originally created, so I have no idea how they were tagged.
I will attach a couple of these files for you to play with.
One thing that I also noticed that might be helpful for you (and seems to indicate that it’s the tags that’s the problem) is that if I right-click one of the files, go to Properties, and make a change to one of the fields that keeps getting deleted, and then go back to the Metadata Pane to make a change, that particular field no longer gets deleted. The other fields still do get deleted though. For example, I go to the properties of a file, change the Year field, save the change, open the Metadata Pane, change the Comment field, and apply the change. The Album, Genre, and Title fields are all deleted, but the Year field is now left untouched.
Another interesting behavior I’ve noticed in the Metadata Pane (unrelated to the issue we’re discussing, and doesn’t happen all the time) is that when you change a field, Opus puts a red arrow next to it to indicate the change. After applying the changes though, sometimes those red arrows don’t go away. I have to close the Metadata Pane and then reopen it to make them go away. It seems like the Metadata Pane isn’t refreshing properly or something.
Thank you for your help. Is there anything else I can do to help troubleshoot this issue?
