Hello, mkvtoolnix is outstanding and the craftsmanship is superb. When the CUESheet includes a global title, can it be automatically used for the title tag when the --title option is empty? Currently, the CUESheet global title is retained/stored, but not populated into the MKV/MKA title tag.

For example, using this CUESheet...

$ cat example.cue

REM GENRE Latin
REM DATE 2005
PERFORMER "Example"
TITLE "Example Dual Disc DVD"
FILE "example.flac" WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "Te Hecho De Menos"
PERFORMER "Example"
INDEX 01 00:00:00
TRACK 02 AUDIO
TITLE "No Te Preocupes Por Mi"
PERFORMER "Example"
INDEX 01 03:28:15
[...]

Successfully mux CUESheet with FLAC to MKA...

$ mkvmerge -o example.mka example.flac --chapters example.cue

The file 'example.mka' has been opened for writing.
Progress: 100%
The cue entries (the index) are being written...
Muxing took 8 seconds.

The MKA has the CUESheet information stored within, including its title...

$ mkvextract cuesheet example.mka

PERFORMER "Example"
TITLE "Example Dual Disc DVD"
REM DATE "2005"
FILE "example.mka" WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "Te Hecho De Menos"
PERFORMER "Example"
INDEX 01 00:00:00
REM GENRE "Latin"
TRACK 02 AUDIO
TITLE "No Te Preocupes Por Mi"
PERFORMER "Example"
INDEX 01 03:28:15
REM GENRE "Latin"
[...]

But the MKA's title tag is unpopulated...

$ mkvmerge -i example.mka -J |grep title

[There's no output.]

Is this by design? Please advise. Thank you.

P.S. - If anyone else needs a quick fix for some old files, the fastest workaround is to use mkvpropedit...

$ mkvpropedit example.mka --set title="Example Dual Disc DVD"
$ mkvmerge -i example.mka -J |grep title

 "title": "Example Dual Disc DVD",
