iTunes: Can I change the 'description' field in 'get info' for an entire album in one go? As a batch?

Hi,

Most fields under 'get info' I can change as a batch (e.g. the 'comment' field or the 'album artist' field). But when I select an entire album and I go to 'get info' then there's no 'description' field which I could change.

Thanks in advance,

HA

Hello H A,
Do you have iTunes 11:

Take a look at this discussion:

All applies to entire albums and playlists as well as individual songs, or an arbitrary selection of multiple songs. It even works with songs from a shared library on another Mac or on a connected device.

Hello nickg5,
Thanks for the link and I'm running iTunes 12.01.26. Read through the article, read a few interesting tips, but couldn't find anything about the description field.
Thanks again,
HA

Would this question about "albums" be related to your issue?

iTunes 12 no longer has Get Info setting to apply album name to all tracks.

nickg5: Thanks, but this discussion is about the 'album' tag, not the 'description' tag.

I would assume that there must be a way to change the 'description' tag for multiple songs in one go (in a batch), but I can't figure out how to do it.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks nickg5, the link you have just posted has answered my question. It's not possible any more to batch edit the description tag in iTunes 12. Unfortunately.
