Adding Categories to Multiple Movies

Aug 27, 2015 at 3:39 PM
Is there a way to Add (not replace) a category to multiple movies at once? I know I can replace the categories through the table mode, but I would like to add a category to several movies at once.

On a similar note, is it possible to add or change Tags to multiple movies at once?

Thanks for your great support!

Categories as in Genre's? With Multiple Movies, not at present. I tried with MultiSave mode in the Movie Browser tab, but it added genre's for every movie selected...to every movie. Bad form....will have to fix that.
Actually, it may be possible in MultiSave, but I'd have to re-work it.

BTW, MultiSave mode is where you select two or more movies.

And this is where you need it for Tags. Select Multiple movies and then go to the Movie & Tag Sets tab. (Damn, need to change that name, it's very confusing)
Enjoy.

Thanks. Tags work great with the Multisave feature.

(And yes, I meant Genre when I said Category).

Sweet. Working on getting MultiSave to behave on genre selection.

Did you know you can r-click on the genre field of a movie to get a checklistbox with possible genres to choose from?
Works on single movies, but in MultiSave not yet.

Sorry, the complexities of knowing which movie has or had which genre, and which didn't is driving me nuts.


I am not able to get Multisave Genre selection working....at this time.

But then again....I figured it out.

This will be in the next release, 3.628b, when ever that appears.
