I am trying to map the F2 key in the normal playlist view to the following action: Open the properties of the selected track, move to the title field and enable editing. Right now I am doing this by pressing alt + enter, then arrow down (twice) and finally f2. I can't find an option in the hotkeys dialog to assign that specific course of action. Is there some way to achieve this behavior?

  • are you trying to change file name or mp3 tag? – Chris.C Jul 25 '15 at 22:22
  • I am trying to change the title tag, not the file name. – BdN3504 Jul 25 '15 at 22:31

Instead of DefaultUI use ColumnsUI. This alternative playlist viewer has Inline metafield editing via F2 which acts like Windows Explorer renaming.

Set up your columns (e.g artist and title) and bind a meta field to each column. Once you pressed F2 you can cycle trough columns via TAB

  • This works, thanks for the suggestion. Although I'd like to know if this is achievable with the default UI. – BdN3504 Jul 26 '15 at 9:51
