Composer Lyricist Display
Hi Simon

I would like to display Composer and Lyricist

a) title [composer (lyricist)] what is the correct format >> Title.displayFormat={$title^$composer$lyricist^......

b) in the comment field [composer (lyricist)]
Comment.displayFormat=.....

c) some other ways? Composer and Lyricist as Artist is not wanted, because of 3dot functionality.

thanks

Best I can do is as follows

Code:
Title.displayFormat={$Title^$Composer^ [^$Lyricist^ (^)]}

nb - Composer and Lyricist need to be an indexTag or an itemTag

However, the display is incorrect if either Composer or Lyricist is missing.
eg.
Title [Composer
Title (Lyricist)]

There is a method using the tagUpdate feature that sets a tag name to a default value, i.e. such as DEFAULT_TAG=Unknown
This default tag can then be used to populate Composer and/or Lyricist with its' value.
The display would then look like
eg.
Title [Composer (Unknown)]
Title [Unknown (Lyricist)]

RE: Composer Lyricist Display
It is much simpler if the display is

title [composer] (lyricist)

For this, you can use:

Title.displayFormat={$Title^$Composer^ [^]$Lyricist^ (^)}

@ Alandbush
@ Simon
Thanks for the replays.
I will go with

Title.displayFormat={$title^$composer$lyricist^ [^)]^ (}

when no Lyricist it will display Title [Composer)]

I asume there is no chance to display it, in the preview next the booklet link see screenshot first post.

You can add this next to the booklet link. What is your complete current setting for tagFormat?

Comment.displayFormat={$composer$lyricist^ [^)]^ ($*infoFileURI^<a href="^">Digital booklet</a>$comment}
