QUOTE (foorious @ Dec 13 2008, 14:05) *
what's a bit boring with you is that when you don't understand something ...


You don't understand something too! tongue.gif smile.gif F.E: With "As i said lyricsfiles are a reasonable feature i was thinking about watching them outside of foobar in explorer/editor. Your initial point is a missing feature inside of foobar wich induced you to request a totally other feature in an special component."
i just wanted to repeat again that the origin problem should be solved in foobar as the missing exclusion in searches are your initial and only point. With the first part of that quote i wanted to show some good reasons why textfiles can be useful. But if you have as only argument the search behaviour in foobar you indeed can't tell us any good reason to store lyrics inside textfiles instead of filetags. And just because of that search behaviour in foobar you are requesting an huge amount of features for another component: downloading textfiles, an option for storing a tag in files that lyrics are found, an option to define name of that tag and so on...

QUOTE (foorious @ Dec 13 2008, 14:05) *
you are always requesting for more and more information and you are making endless posts simply because you don't know about (for example here) the details of my own config.


Hmm, i wasn't really interested in your configuration but in T.P. Wangs promise to develop a simple and clean component. Do you at least see why the requested way of implementing that desired feature could result in lost usabilty and simplicity for newbies - that is exactly the reason for me that i never used T.P. Wangs lyric_show_panel. Are you aware that if lyrics_grabber would have a feature to tag files automatically it then could be added to the list of problematic components like lyric_show_panel.

Based on your request let me ask a question: If you are more interested in the automatically settet tag than in the automatically setted tag would you be satisfied with following:

In the lyrics grabber window where you will have to press a button like "Store as textfile" and beside that button is a checkbox "tag files that lyrics are found" you will have to check - and nothing else: no options in preferences and no possibility to define the name of that tag.
You will have your desired feature and lyrics grabber wouldn't violate good behaviour with tagging files without user interaction.


By the way:
A direct question to Peter or Foosion: Can we expect that foobar somedays is changing its search behaviour in queries in that sense that multiline fields are excluded from simple search?

Edit: I took a look in the list of problematic and maybe an automatically setted tag like you, foorious, suggested wouldn't mean the same what brought lyric_show to the list - but however: it should be available as option in the download window and not anywhere in the preferences enabled by default. Just my decent opinion how a good and usable component should be designed after i have seen so much horrible stuff in the last three or four years as components.
