Problems with the preferences

Hello,

now that I was able to correct some errors in my analyzed iTunes database with the help of Beatunes, I unfortunately had to find out that the changes were not transferred to iTunes. Why not? Surely the error is in the preferences - but where?

I think that the settings have to be made under general behaviour. However, it is not clear to me what is meant by the individual points. A small info button explaining this would be helpful.

With kind regards
Stefan

    Hey Stefan,

    using an iTunes-based library, beaTunes should always update iTunes during analysis. If that does not happen right away, it's an issue.

    Just to make sure we don't misunderstand each other: You mean Analysis and not Inspection, right? If you mean Inspection, note that you have to commit your changes. This two-step process allows you to review changes you want to make, before actually writing them. Please read https://blog.beatunes.com/2015/02/improving-tags-through-inspection... for more info on this (also on how to turn the two-step process off).

    Hope this helps,

    Hello, Hendrik,

    the problem has been correctly identified. In fact, I have been around the inspection area trying to change the names from Various to the correct name. Then everything was correct on Beatunes - but not on iTunes. I read the link and had the idea that I actually had to transfer the solution first, but then I couldn't find a corresponding button, so I looked in the preferences. There the checkbox "Delay execution of solutions" was not checked, so in my understanding a change should have been made immediately in itunes, right? But this is not the case.
    Any idea?

    Once again...

    I have restarted Beatunes. Now it seems to work. I have no idea why this was not the case before.

    Thanks for the help.

    Is there actually a manual in German language?

    Hallo Stefan,

    Keine Ahnung, was da schief gegangen ist, aber schön, dass es jetzt funktioniert. ;-)

    Eine deutsche Anleitung gibt es leider nicht, aber ich kann gerne Fragen auf deutsch beantworten.

    Beste Grüße,

    -hendrik

    Ah! Danke!

    Ich dachte mir bereits, dass ich meine Fragen auch auf deutsch stellen kann, aber bevor ich vergebens warte, weil ich irrig bin…
    Kann ich - falls irgendwann wieder Fragen auftauchen - direkt auf die Mail antworten?

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
    Stefan

    Bitte nicht.

    Stattdessen lieber für jedes neue Problem eine neue Diskussion auf http://help.beatunes.com/ starten. Das erleichtert das Beantworten von Fragen enorm und (sofern es eine öffentliche Diskussion ist) erlaubt anderen Nutzern leicht Antworten auf häufige Fragen zu finden.

    Danke!

    OK verstehe! Kein Problem.

    Eine Frage habe ich aber dennoch an dieser Stelle: wo kann ich Verbesserungsvorschläge und Ideen - vorzugsweise in deutscher Sprache loswerden?
