I don't want to make it totally automatic because I don't want you to split using a cue and have it just tag it with the wrong tags if it failed.  the way i just made it work was a second step through the tags tab.  you choose a cue sheet, it populates album, artist and pops up the track name window.  you can verify/add/update and then just hit tag.  it's an extra step, but i like having some user verification in there, especially since cue sheets only have a small number of "standard" tags

i might go back and put in a way to do it in 1 step - but with a "does this look ok?" step before tagging

greenone told me of another bug that I fixed this morning

i'm playing around with adding the dvd-audio functionality from DVD-Audiofile into the util tab of xACT.  for right now I might just have it do 1 group (instead of the 9 in the dvd audio spec)

changes so far in 2.13.  I've had a bit of free time in the past week

   -Added ability to tag MP3, Monkey's Audio, and WavPack files. Changed FLAC tagging to make unicode-friendly.  Added ability to add album art to FLAC, AAC, Apple Lossless and MP3 files.
   -fixed bug when "Delete original files" option checked and task canceled that resulted in original files still being deleted.  Check now in place to prevent this.
   -added user preference to delete files or move to trash when "Delete original files" checked.  Default is to delete.
   -added ability to convert Apple Lossless files to LAME mp3.  Tags and album art will be copied to the mp3.
   -Added ability to parse a CUE file for tags (album, performer, track names).  From the "FLAC/M4A Tags" tab, select "Load Tags From CUE sheet…" from the File menu and choose a cue sheet.  xACT will attempt to parse the metadata from the file.  Note: previous "Load track Names from file" was moved from the Edit menu to the File Menu.
   -added ability to make DVD-Audio disc image from flac or wav files. note: the tool that authors the dvd-a data may picky about wav files having standard headers.  If wavs don't work, try flac files.
   -fixed bug when using "shntool fix" to fix sector boundary errors on files with no file extension. 
   -fixed bug when converting files with no extension to SHN
   -fixed bug in custom shntool len format when time was not last
   -fixed bug that caused a crash when verifying md5 checksum file with invalid checksum format

New version works great!

Hey I have run into one possible bug:
 If you try and add a picture (album art) that is over 4 or so MB xACT acts like it is added but when you go back through the files it is not there - also in one case it corrupted the flac files (although for some reason the TAGs where still there - but missing the album art of course).

Can anyone else confirm this issue?

I was hoping for a feature that parses the txt file, adding tracknumber, artist, date, song to the flac fileset. also has the ability to add/create other tags like album and comment. the ability to edit/create tags and to add album/cover art automatically (if the proper sized jpg was present in the folder) would be sweet, too.

thx for asking.

There is already a feature 'Load track names from file' located in the File Menu.

sorry for the waste of bandwidth.

moved the conversation to a more appropriate thread.
