    Default GNOME's EasyTAG 2.2 Supports GTK3+ By Default & New Features

    Phoronix: GNOME's EasyTAG 2.2 Supports GTK3+ By Default & New Features

    The GNOME EasyTAG application is a simple, open-source way for editing audio tags within popular audio file formats. The much-revamped EasyTAG 2.2.0 is now available...

    I would really like if articles that praise GUIs (or GUI applications) would include at least one screenshot. So you can at least have an idea what the application talked about looks like (now). Just saying.

    Nice to see improvements, but I still consider Picard vastly superior. The moment they add Musicbrainz support I will consider its use.

    Thumbs down

    No proper documentation ~ useless software
    One simple task and it showed how EasyTAG is a lacking piece of software. First I wanted to just set some common tags for a directory containing one album. I had to GUESS that the little squares next to the tag fields do the job. Then I wanted to fill title tags of the songs with file names. There is no freaking way I could figure out how to do it. I've done some basics of ANSI C programming and I couldn't figure this one out... By a blind shot I left just a %t and it placed file names in place of titles (tags). How I wanted it but it was a lucky shot. The legend doesn't even mention a sentence "file name" (sic!).

    Long story short there is not a bit of documentation for the application and what could have been, as a last resort, explained right in the application UI isn't. In this regard http://puddletag.sourceforge.n... is the complete opposite of EasyTAG, sporting a decent documentation and tutorials.

    It is not obvious in the first place, but it took me less than 5 minutes to understand how the program works.

    I don't see 'file name' there.

    Because that's the screen to _create_ the file name from the tags. But even if you create tags from the file name there's no "file name" placeholder. If you want to fill you tags from file name you have to select in the drop down on the top the "Fill tags" element and then specify which tag is which part of the file name.

    For example:

    File name of the selected file(s): 12. MyArtist - My Title (2014).mp3
    Format: %n. %a - %t (%y)

    Then you press scan and it will fill your tags from the file name.
    12 => %n => track
    MyArtist => %a => artist
    My Title => %t => title
    2014 => %y => year

    You just used %t so the complete file name is the title.
