Hi, first post here.

After hundreds of years (well a lot) using WinAMP I dumped it last year and started using Fb2k exclusively. Can't believe I never switched sooner, although I get stuck in my ways so...

Anyhow, I am currently using EAC to rip my CDs to flac (always used EAC and haven't got any intention of changing that because the process is accurate and quick...and easy and familiar). However, after ripping a lot of albums I realised I'd forgotten to export the blasted db for each cd as a text file in EAC (something I like to do). This produces a text file with the cd title containing a track listing and the play time of each track next to it. Eg.

CD: Angélique Kidjo - Ayé

01. Agolo    [0:04:49.37]
02. Adouma    [0:04:28.38]
03. Azan Nan Kpé    [0:04:10.50]
04. Tatchédogbé    [0:04:21.00]
05. Djan - Djan    [0:04:11.25]
06. Lon Lon Vadjro    [0:05:09.30]
07. Houngbati    [0:04:44.07]
08. Idjé - Idjé    [0:05:48.63]
09. Yemandja    [0:04:14.12]
10. Tombo    [0:04:54.38]

I didn't want to have to go through every single CD again and insert it into the drive, so I am loading the ripped albums into Fb2k using the playlist automatically produced by EAC when ripping to albums flac. I have installed a component called text tools and configured it to copy track listings with times like so:

[%tracknumber%. ]%title%$tab() '['%length_ex%']'

Now from the right-click context menu in Fb2K I can choose my custom Text Tools copy command and then paste into a new text file which produces this:

01. Summertime     [3:32.520]
02. Voodoo Child (Slight Return)     [3:51.960]
03. Agolo     [4:48.013]
04. Fifa     [3:59.200]
05. Batonga     [4:34.320]
06. Wombo Lombo     [4:13.547]
07. Malaïka     [4:13.973]
08. Open Your Eyes (feat. Kelly Price)     [4:30.453]
09. The Sound of the Drums     [4:58.360]
10. Adouma     [4:27.813]
11. Naïma (feat. Carlos Santana)     [4:29.333]
12. Tourner la page     [2:54.667]
13. Babalao     [4:28.840]
14. Agossi     [4:01.427]
15. Idjé Idjé     [5:06.627]
16. Tombo     [3:58.533]
17. Wé Wé     [4:07.293]
18. Sénié     [1:51.320]

This is 'okay' but I'd prefer to have the artist and title of the cd above the track listing as with the EAC text files. Is there any addon to Fb2K that can allow me to do this? It would be even better to be able to export to a text file rather than have to create a text file manually and then copy and paste details...which is a bit laborious to say the least.
