Re: Relationship on Artist Lookup Screen

I sent him an email last week. He responded with an explanation for why I was having one problem (using full-size images instead of thumbnails), provided a workaround for another, and then this update today. Awesome. He provides better support, even after retiring the products, than most companies d...

Re: Artist Name vs. Performing Name

That's very similar to what I've done and pretty much what I'm going with for now. Sadly, it still just doesn't feel like the "right" approach. Oh, well.

Artist Name vs. Performing Name

OK, my fellow CATraxx aficionados, I'm once again redoing my database and I've decided to re-examine how I handle one particular issue and thought I solicit community input to see how others handle things. Here is the situation. When I entered ABBA, I also created entries for the four individuals wh...

Re: Database issues

I backed up, repaired, and compacted the database. Then I created a new database and copied everything from the old to the new (interesting to note that the new database was a few MB larger...). I then compacted the new database. I scrolled up and down in the table views and found that they still mo...

Re: Database issues

Unfortunately, using either Update ArtistSort or Update TitleSort will mess with some of the custom sort information that I've used. So I'll try creating a new database and transferring info to see if that helps.

Database issues

I'm having three issues with some of my CATraxx databases (but I'm posting here because they are not specific to CATraxx) that is not present in other databases: 1) If I click on the alphabet buttons beneath the button bar, the window usually jumps to the very last entry (or, sometimes, to a random ...

Re: Hidden Tracks

Hmm. Two tracks numbered 1. I've got to think about that. The metadata geek in me is just screaming "noooooooo" but that may be the best solution. The other idea I've been toying with is just put track 00 as the last track on the CD (so if there are 12 tracks, track 00 becomes track 13 with a note t...

Re: Relationship on Artist Lookup Screen

I like those screens, but I tend to mostly use the actual tables much more than the explorer views.

Hidden Tracks

Just curious as to how people have handled hidden tracks in the pregap sequence of CDs (in other words, track 0). CATraxx doesn't appear to support a track lower than track 1. But if I record track 0 as track 1, then the numbering for other tracks won't match the track order on the CD track list. Su...

Relationship on Artist Lookup Screen

So I am (once again, it's bee a few years...) starting over from scratch. This time, I'm really trying to focus on better quality data and more focus on artists. One thing that I noted is that if I list several relations for a artist, they are displayed oddly in the Artist Lookup screen. So, for Bil...
