Ots Studio has a simple editing mode known as item quick edit which enables you to quickly and easily edit the artist, title, genre, and release information of an item in an Ots file. When you click on an item in the File Chunk Map area, as opposed to a chunk, the Item Quick Edit screen will appear in the edit area of the screen. This mode is ideal for quickly and efficiently entering general information. It is quick and easy to tab through all items, editing as you go.
For advanced editing you will need to click on the individual chunk references and edit the appropriate fields, e.g. the Artist Info chunk for the first track in the album.
When you have performed any kind of edit save the Ots file for the changes to take effect. Note that you should not normally edit a file while it is currently being accessed by another program, such as OtsAV.
See the Doing things the right way! section for important information on correctly editing your Ots file chunks.
Open Ots Studio.
Click on the button and navigate to the Ots file that you would like to edit.
In the File Chunk Map area, click on the item (track number) you want to edit.
On the right-hand side of the Ots Studio screen there is the Item Quick Edit screen.
Click in the item field that you want to edit and edit the field, e.g. click in the Title field and add the title information.
Tip: We recommend that you check out the Doing things the right way! topic for helpful advise on correctly editing artist and title information.
You can quickly navigate through the edit screen by using keyboard shortcuts; Tab key for next, and Shift + Tab for previous.
If you have edited the Artist field you may be prompted by a dialog box asking whether you want to save the Artist information as the default for all items. If your CD is a single artist CD then choose to save the Artist as the default, an Item default chunk reference will be created and all items will use the default Artist Info chunk. This action saves on typing repeated entries. If the CD is a compilation album then you will want to add the Artist information per track.
When you have completed editing click on the button on the Ots Studio toolbar to save your work.
Note: if you are trying to save to a file that is opened by another application, or if the file is marked as Read Only, you will receive the Error writing to File error message. You will need to close the other application or change the attributes of the file you are trying to save to.
