aTunes V2.0: CR in Tag-Lyrics wrong

    When I edit the song lyrics of a song and save them again, aTunes inserts four
    (!) CRs for every Return I type. This is wrong.
    And all the lyrics I edited with V1.13.5 have two CRs instead of one. This
    showed OK in V1.13.5 despite it wasn't correct then either, but now every
    additional CR (correctly) shows a blank line in the lyrics window, i.e. one
    blank line for all lyrics editied with V1.13.5 and three blank lines for
    lyrics editied with V2.0. This looks ugly.

    Wouldn't it be more correct to set one LF or one CR/LF pair for each Return?

    BTW in this case I'm using aTunes 2.0 on WinXP Prof, SP3. I love aTunes,
    especially as it is available on different platforms, including Windows and
    Linux, a I have both platforms in use. I also had an eye on Songbird, but
    after the people there have ended official Linux support, aTunes now is my one
    and only favorite.

    And another question: when my tags have no lyrics and aTunes finds lyrics, the
    button "Add lyrics" in the Options menu of the Lyrics window is always
    inactive (grayed out). How can I store the lyrics directly? I know that it
    works when I'm using the right mouse button on the song in the playlist, but
    sometimes it would be nice to just add the lyrics that are already there and
    visible. And as the available options entry indicates, it is intended to work
    this way.

    Added a bug report for your first post.

    About the second one, "Add lyrics" button is enabled to add lyrics for an
    external engine, opening a browser where you can add lyrics (for example at
