The "Tags Preferences" tab has options related to the management of tags, such as transferring tags from source files, loading missing tags from network services, and integration with Tag Editor.
- Transfer tags from source files
- Load missing tags and artworks from local paths
- Load missing tags and artworks from the network
- Strip tags from converted files
- Launch Tag Editor after conversion
Check this option to enable transferring tags from source files to destination files. Uncheck this option if tags of source files should be completely ignored. When the source file has no metadata and artworks, this option will have no effect. For example, CD files don't have such information. It is safe to leave this option 'on' always.

Check this option to enable the loading of missing tags from files and folder names of source audio files. The application will parse the file and folder names of source files, and extract tags, such as Title, Artist, Album, Album Artist, Year, and Track Number.
When this option is on, the artwork may also be picked up from the source folder, if artwork exists and rights for directory were provided to the application.
When ripping CD, this option is not recommended, as paths of CD files usually don't carry the right information.
Check this option to enable the loading of missing tags from network services, such as MusicBrainz, CoverArt, and AcoustID. This option may delay the conversion, as interaction with web services might require in some cases a significant time. If you are converting a huge library in one session, this option should be probably unchecked.
