I would like to see in future versions the possibility to edit more ID3 tags and to be able to batch edit chapter titles, including placeholders.

Example:
You have an audiobook with 200 chapters and you would like to name them Chapter 001, Chapter 002, Chapter 003, ...
Here it would be very helpful if it was possible to specify a common name for all chapters (here: 'Chapter') and a placeholder for the numbers (i.e. %nnn).

Indeed a good suggestion.

I would like to add to that a request that you make an option available that the imported files use their file names, not ID3 tags as their.. name.. since I try to keep my source files organized and give them logical names, but when imported into Audiobook Builder their names often come out very different.

1. I have built plenty of Audio Books before I had ABB and there are a lot that are longer than 12 hours - and they play without issues on my gen. 4 and 5.5 iPods. Please lose the 12 hour limit - or make it overrideable

2. I usually rip my files from CD using iTunes. Audiobooks get ripped as 32 bit mono/64-bit stereo AAC files. ABB only really needs to concatenate the files, no AAC conversion is required.

3. ABB doesn't need to copy the files into the project, a sym-link would suffice. I never keep the projects, all I want is the finished file.

4. Read ID tag info from first file processed. Most of the info is already there from when the file gets imported/ripped into iTunes.

5. Remember location of ABB window position. Every time I finish a project and start a new one, the initial screen appears in the middle of screen 1 and I have to move it to the corner of screen 2. The file create dialog box then jumps to the middle of screen 1 again. The next window remembers its position, so it can't be that difficult ;).

That's about all for now ... I'm sure, I can come up with more as I go along.
