You can type in the "files to update" grid, but it ignores anything that you type and immediately reverts to the Discogs text as soon as you exit the field.
The grid is controlled by mm. I always thought, that it was not possible. But i would be happy, if someone know how to control the grid and allow the edits. Or the development team make it possible.

If i can i would allow the edits. This would be a very useful function !
tj_junk wrote:13) In the Composer, Conductor, Lyricist, and Producer results, you might consider replacing ', ' and ' & ' with '; ' -- since i believe semicolon is the preferred standard for MM. If i understand correctly, MM treats semicolon as a distinguishing separator (for features like Magic Nodes),whereas comma and ampersand are treated simply as text.
I added some time ago the option to change the separator. Take a look in the options !
tj_junk wrote:14) The keywords for Composer, Conductor, Lyricist, Producer, and Featuring should automatically handle the ' [[^]]+]" pattern. For example, i have had to add these to the keyword options in order to get them to parse correctly: "Lyrics By [L],Lyrics By [M & T]", "Conductor [Orchestra],Conductor [Recording Conducted By]", "Producer [Additional]", and "Music By [M]".
You can add a "*" to the keyword e.g. "Music by*", this should solve your problem !

I agree. I change this in the next release.
I'm happy someone using the saveable filters i added long time ago.
16) Filter out or deselect "non-tracks". Many albums have track listings that contain extra lines that are like section headers (e.g., "Bonus Tracks", "Extra Bonus Track", "-", "Finale Bonus Tracks:", "Act 1:", "Act 2:", or even original album names on listings for box sets). Those get parsed as if they were tracks, and they get automatically selected. This often screws up the track numbering. Is there a way to filter those out? If track listings are generally numbered throughout Discogs, then the best solution would be to filter out the lines that aren't numbered. However, if that's not the case, then i suppose you could resort to another "keywords" configuration in the Tool Options. Here are some examples that demonstrate:
The script filtered index-tracks out, but then i changed some code, so it doesn't work anymore. I will make it working again.
These tracks (non-tracks, index-tracks, headings, sub-tracks) are a big problem of discogs. And a big problem for scripts like discogs tagger.
At last Discogs recognizes it and changed the structure of these tracks. Before changing the structure, contributors can add an index-track for: section headers, Start of sub-tracks, whatever. And to make matters worse, the contributors use sometimes "-" to separate between CD / Track in the tracknumbering, sometimes "." or nothing. Sometimes their separate sub-tracks with ".", sometimes with "-".
The new structure split the index tracks into Headings and Subtracks. The problem is, "all" Discogs releases with index tracks have to revise..
What i'm trying to say is, writing a script to parse this isn't easy.

Thanks again. I truly admire the effort you have put into this tool.
I would be happy, if you forward them to the MM development team. This would help me.
