Can't find a way to add Color and Key fields in iTunes

Color and Key are as you know not standard fields in iTunes, and I can't find a way to add them... there is a link to a plugin in one of your support articles - but the link is broken, and I can't see any of the ones listed in settings/plugins doing this.

Do you have a tool for this?

    There is a plugin that copies the key values to the comment/grouping field. You can install it through the beaTunes preferences->plugin.

    Note that this an analysis plugin. That means it will show up in the analysis options dialog.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Hendrik,

    well - I looked at that option, but need those fields for other values... and I really would like to have Color and Key as fields. Any options?

    Not really... iTunes can only display fields it supports.. that's an Apple issue.
