Pad track number in tags with zeros


I’m new to Beets and i’m unable to find this information anywhere.

How can i format the “track number” field directly sotred inside the MP3 tags by padding the value with 0 as a prefix (depending on the size of the current track number : 1 will be padded as “01” and “12” will of couse be kept as is).

That’s not currently possible; sorry! Our tag abstraction layer exposes these values as integers, not strings, so beets doesn’t give you control over that kind of detail.

I would also love to see album numbers and track numbers be zero-padded. Any chance this may change in the future?
