|Summary||0005528: Multi-attribute field configuration: spacing is confusing|
|Description||When configuring the multi-attribute splitter, configuration of the separator is spacing-dependent. This is very confusing to the user who won't understand why the splitter doesn't work as expected if they e.g. enter a ';' instead of a '; '.|
What should happen is that entering a ';' should split:
'Artist1 ; Artist2'
In all four cases, the artist should be represented:
-In the tracklist / properties panel (or anywhere else where the full string is shown) as entered.
-In the tree / find more from... (or any other location where the individual artists are shown) without a leading or trailing space.

|related to||0005529||feedback||jiri||Multi-attribute field splitter characters that aren't field splitters don't display consistently|
||I don't see any problem there, no matter how many spaces you enter, ';' properly separates the artists. The space(s) in configuration are only useful to tell MM how to visually split the artists, but they aren't important for real splitting.|
||I retested and confirmed that this is no longer a problem--whether the splitter is defined as ';' or '; ', if the splitter is entered as 'a;b' 'a; b' or 'a ;b' MediaMonkey always creates a split, though it is visually represented as 'a; b'.|
