Music files named tagged e.g. with the album names:

  • A
  • A (disc 2)


  1. Select all these files
  2. Change album name for all to 'A'


Nothing is changed.

Work around

An old, but still annoying behaviour. I mitigated it the last years by changing the album name in 2 steps.

  1. rename to 'Ax'
  2. rename to 'A'

Hi, sorry for the late response. It should work now.

qltk/edittags: Allow saving tag if present in all songs but value differ
If a set of songs all had a tag defined but with differing values, the
edit tags dialog would not allow changing to one of the existing values.

For example, two albums with tags album='A' and album='A (disc 2)' could
not directly be set to album='A' together.

Fixes #2686
