chapterEditor(cE) rev1.01 is available.
In this little update there are new features for Matroska Hard-Linking.
I have installed 5 new Hard-Linking options.
The options for series may be quite helpful.
Episodes of a series with an intro and/or credits can be linked quickly.
The first mkv file is the intro and the last mkv file are the credits.
On the hard disk, the files can be different ordered, the order is deciding how it is in the cE.
Change chapterEditor added & fixed * improved # changed % rev1.01 2018-05-29 // Matroska Menu Editor & Hard-Linking options - full Hard-Linking - only with NextUID - only with PrevUID - Series: episodes with intro - Series: episodes with credits - Series: episodes with intro and credits * small error when disabling the source components # Hard-Linking: unused UIDs are removed from the mkv files
chapterEditor(cE) rev1.02 is available.
In the cE there is now a Multi-MKV editor,
with which one can create a multi-editions file from a normal Matroska file(mkv, mka, mk3d).
Only the chapters and tags are replaced and no video or audio data is manipulated.
I had a couple of requests where NLE projects could put multiple editions of a movie, split into many parts, in a single mkv.
In principle, it is similar to Blu-ray or DVD, but there you have specific information about the individual segments.
The Multi-MKV editor requires only one Matroska file with chapters, which are interpreted as segments.
Actually, all very easy and this time I have also recorded a few tutorial videos.
With the Multi-MKV editor but not only NLE projects can be edited, even normal episodes, movies or homemade videos
can be subsequently converted into a multi-mkv.
There will be a function for an NLE project later on which helps to connect the individual parts.
The tutorial video on NLE explains it in more detail.
Nobody would like to look at friends the full 9h holiday video.
But with a multi-mkv and an edition: Holiday Highlights(36min) you look at them but happy.
Again, nothing has to be cut out or re-encoded.
Such a multi-mkv is based only on ordered editions and is thus, as good as anywhere playable.
In VLC and mpv it definitely works and I think on many other software players too.
A little later there will also be the function for splitting a multi-mkv, since I already had requests about this, but never really knew where and how to install it.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.04 is available.
A small change caused the Matroska Tags Editor to stop working properly.
In Mutli-MKV Editor there is now a help for NLE projects to connect the individual MKV parts.
Change chapterEditor added & fixed * improved # changed % rev1.04 2018-08-21 // Matroska Multi-MKV & Join Matroska files - Automatic chapters per file are set by MKVToolNix - there is a chapters.xml / .txt in the folder, these chapters are used - the path to the new Matroska file is transferred to the edit field - Matroska file is automatically played after successful create * End time from last chapter was sometimes not calculated correctly # External chapters: Chapters are ignored if start time greater than edition's playing time // Matroska Tags editor * Tags were no longer saved correctly in Matroska files
chapterEditor(cE) rev1.05 is available.
Multi-MKV files can now be split in the Multi-MKV Editor.
For Multi-MKV files with a segment info edition,
the individual segments of an edition can be specifically extracted,
for example, to process them again in an NLE project.
If there is no segment info edition, the segments are calculated based on all timestamps.
Here, all related times are interpreted as a segment.
This always results in a minimum number of segments, which reduces the split number and partially
lowers to 0. In some cases MKVToolNix does not have to "cut" anything to directly extract an edition.
For the Disc2mkv editors there is now a possibility to insert a segment info edition.
This is intended for further editing for NLE projects.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.06 is available.
In this update there are several new features and improvements for the Disc2mkv editors.
The editing of multi-edition discs should now be a bit easier.
"Preselection track flag"
For the subtitles, two flags Standard and Compression can be predefined.
A partially-checked checkbox is the default value for MKVToolNíx(MTX).
MTX then decides how to set this flag.
Now file attachments can be set.
QP file (x264) is the only file so far
If there is more need for more files, please let me know.
"Always jump to the last line in the log": deactivated
The memo in which the output text is appended does not react as I would like.
In addition, Linux and Windows handle this differently.
Windows: After the new text has been appended, it jumps to the cursor position.
Therefore, you can not use the mouse to control the scrollbar, but you can use the arrow keys to
because the cursor is also moved.
Linux: It is still jumped to the last line,
if the cursor was in the last line before the new text was appended.
"Save in Matroska files"
Because cE does not write into Matroska files, I need mkvpropedit.
Mkvpropedit needs an XML file (chapters/tags) and this must generate cE beforehand.
Then the XML file is deleted again.
When I create Multi-Edition MKVs I need these XML files and have had until now
always save twice. Once in the Matroska file and once as an XML file, this is now omitted.
Matroska Tags: The MTX Statistics Tags are not written to the XML file.
In the edtior these Statistics Tags are not available.
Note: Saving the tags again in the MKV would delete / overwrite the MTX Statistics Tags.
I forgot to mention:
In the online chapter database I have uploaded the complete Deep Space Nine series with english and german chapter names.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.07 is available.
An important bugfix for BD2mkv editor. Multi-Angle Blu-ray support was broken.
There are a few improvements to the Matroska Tags editor and two new features.
Remove and insert MKVToolNix track Statistics Tags(StatsTags).
For inserting such StatsTags, a process is started only, which is not monitored by cE.
StatsTags for multiple files can be written at the same time, depending on the performance of the PC.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.08 is available.
There are a few important bugfixes and improvements.
There is now a config file for the Matroska Menu.
This restores the structures in the editor.
New files in the folder are also loaded.
Missing files are skipped during recovery.
The SegmentUID is used to identify the files.
That means the files can be renamed. Should the files be recreated sometime
or changed, the "old" SegmentUID must be used.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.12 is available.
Append files/folder/disc in the editors has been working for a long time
(drop into VST or right-click on the buttons in the file bar),
nevertheless, the corresponding main menu items were missing.
Disc Title Profiles:
To quickly set all the settings for the used tracks, title profiles can now be created.
Each profile has a name that can be changed. Only active tracks and their data are saved.
I decided against a profile mask, as this would have taken a lot more effort.
To create new profiles, you only have to configure the selected title as you would like it to be.
All active tracks and their data will then automatically become a new profile called "New Profile".
Thus, a title itself is the profile mask.
There are two ways to add a new profile, using the button and a hotkey.
When the title profiles are opened, a "small" title profile is automatically created and compared with all existing title profiles.
Again, the differences are again represented by means of small percent images.
For comparison, the number of active tracks and their order is crucial.
If a track has too few or too many active tracks than are stored in the profile, using the settings will still work.
If the order of the track types (Vid, Aud, Sub) is not identical to the saved profiles,
then the use of the settings will be interrupted as soon as the track types are different.
To even faster equip a list of titles (series disc) with the same settings,
the last used profile can be used again. A hotkey(Q) in the VST is available/adjustable.
Empty subtitles file:
Often there are forced subtitles, which are not present in some episodes.
For this I manually add an empty subtitle and this can now be done automatically.
The path to such a empty subtitle file is set separately in the DVD and BD settings.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.13 is available.
An important change has been added for uploading chapters.
Users had uploaded chapters multiple times as there were bugs in the chapter names
or other settings were not set correctly.
You can always edit your own uploaded chapters/titles! In the main menu there is an item: Edit chapters.
A warning is displayed if the same title name is used during the upload.
Of course there are the same titles on different discs and it is still possible to upload duplicate titles.
The Matroska Tags Editor had two bugs and there are some improvements.
Action range: this is now available for all SimpleTag values (previously only for the language).
Furthermore, the Action range can be applied to all tabs, even if the option "disabled" is selected.
Other tabs only change values of the same type if possible.
For example, the XML index must match/be present.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.14 is available.
A major update for the Matroska Tags editor.
Matroska Tags Profiles are now available, much like the Disc Title Profiles.
The Tags tabs are saved as a profile and can be applied to other Tags/tabs.
The profiles are normal Matroska XML files and are stored in a folder.
The default folder is located in subfolders in the cE data folder and can be changed in the settings.
For changing, the folder button must be used, or in the edit field with ENTER also the folder dialog is opened.
In the specified folder already existing Tags.xml files can be copied and
cE then reads these automatically as new profiles at the next start.
To apply a profile, there are other options that use/do not use specific Tag values.
With a right click on the button Apply a selection list opens.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.15 is available.
For the GUI, there is now a CLI function with the option to load files into the cE.
For Windows, two options can be used by right-clicking.
1.) Open with
After loading a file with "Open with" in cE for the first time,
then there is an entry in the registry:
"X:\your path\chapterEditor.exe" "%1"
The last used editor is used.
If the last editor was not a Chapter or Tags editor, then the Matroska Chapter editor is used.
For example, if you always want to use the Tags editor you have to adjust the value for the command.
"X:\your path\chapterEditor.exe" -l ceMTTags "%1"
2.) Send to
With "Send to" several files/folders can be loaded.
To do this, create a shortcut to the cE.exe (right click on cE.exe).
This link is copied to the "Send to" folder
Default link: "X:\your path\chapterEditor.exe"
Likewise, this link can be edited and you can load files into a specific editor.
"X:\your path\chapterEditor.exe" -l ceMTTags
"X:\your path\chapterEditor.exe" -l ceMatroska
For Linux, the "Open with" also works, but could not test it extensively.
For the Converter this results in a batch functionality, which I did not test (only theoretically).
You could convert files directly.
