Customize columns

Menu View > Columns

With this dialog you can add, remove and rearrange the columns of the file view.

Value

This field is required and is used for displaying content in the file view. You can use any placeholder from the list below.

Field

This field is optional. The placeholder of this field is used for editing the content of the field through the file view - if this field is empty, the column is write protected.
You can only use placeholders for tag fields (e.g. %artist%), %_filename_ext%, or %_filename% here.

Sort by

This field is optional. If this field is empty, Mp3tag uses the contents of Value for sorting. Otherwise the evaluated content of this field is used.
