Copy chosen tag info from one set of tracks to a different set of tracks

This applet will copy specfic tag data from one set of selected tracks to a second set of selected tracks. You can copy any combination of Song Name, Artist, Album, Album Artist, Composer, Genre, Grouping, Last Played Date, Rating, Plays, Lyrics, BPM, Artwork, Disc and Track info, Comments, and Year.

Use with caution. Both sets of selected tracks should be sorted by Play Order/Manual Order (or at the very least using the same sorting) so the tag info is copied in the correct order from and to the intended tracks.

OS X 10.6 and later only. Previous version for earlier systems available at the link below in the "Info" section.
