Is there a quick way to view what Jaikoz is considering a change to a file before it saves?

For example, I often load some tracks and match them up to musicbrainz, jaikoz will math the track and show me the little save icon in the left column... great, whats the new info it added/changed i ask myself.. for most tracks one or two of the other columns will highlight indicating what changed. however for some song none of the columns will highlight..

My thought is maybe I should turn on ALL the columns to see whats changed but that seems clunky. Is there a quick(er) way to see what what the changes are? Maybe add an extra tab down in the info/summary area that could list them out? or am I missing something already in place?

Thanks!

I've seen the same thing but have never been too concerned about it since it could be something I completely don't care about (Is compilation, ISRC, sort anything).

Maybe a solution could be to setup the View and ID3 panes (under View menu) with all your extra columns. Then your main Edit pane would be tidy and only what you want to see, but when you get curious you could just click over to one of the others.

<edit> Sorry, I was thinking the View pane acted the same as the ID3 pane, but it split-screens instead. Prolly won't help you.

View Pane show all changes, but as you say only show all field changes if you have all columns displayed. However you can have all columns displayed in the View Panel without having them all displayed in the Edit Panel so that you can see all fields that have changed without cluttering up your edit window (But only the Edit Window wil show you the new value)

You have to do this using the column control in the top right hand corner to enable columns rather than using Preferences:Table:Column

and also make sure

Preferences:Table:Synchronization:Syschronize Column Sorting .., is disabled

Having said that I like your idea of adding a tab showing all changed fields for the selected song, I think I'll add that to Jaikoz when I can.

Yes it does, it only lists modified fields in alphabetical order. If you look at the screenshot above you can see its not listing Artist, Artwork or Composer.
