Make the music library export GUI easier and clearer to use, and add facility to export artist folders only (no art or NFO files, just create correctly named folders in the Artist Information Folder).

It becme obvious from user feedback in wanting to use the new the Artist Information Folder facility for artist local art and NFO files that they needed a way to automatically create correctly named artist folders without exporting nfo files or art. This fills that gap in the workflow.

The GUI has also been simplified, and use clarified by showing a description of where exported files are going.



Add facility to export artist folders only, no NFO or art.
Show full description of where export is going when not picking folder explicitly.
Simplify display by hiding non-applicable controls depending on export type.

I tested this build and had no issue with its operation. I ran the test 4 times, each time on a Fresh Install, using various scenarios and all worked as expected.

Tested after Scan only

  • To library folders - ok
  • Separate files for each item - ok
  • Artists folders only- ok

Tested after Scrape of albums and artists

  • Single file - ok
  • To library folders - ok
  • Separate files for each item - ok
  • Artists folders only- ok

Single file import - ok
Scraping local - ok

Thanks :)
