How do I add music folders in version 4.0.5? What am I supposed to put in the Name field?
I have happily been using version 3.9 for some time but have just built a different version of Linux (Manjaro) on a different laptop and the software manager has given me version 4.0.5. Try as I have, for quite some time, I can't get it to scan my music files into the library. When I click /File/Open Folder or /File/Add Folder, it pops up a window that lists all the places from which I select Music. The main window then lists all the folders in Music (the artists' names) with two fields below, Name and Filter. Filter defaults to All Files but I have no idea what to put in the Name field so, without that, I have been unable to import any music into the library. (I just want to import all tracks.) I have tried , *., *.flac and *.wm, but it doesn't seem to be those wildcard entries that it's looking for. So, with apologies, if I'm being stupid, I have absolutely no idea what to put in the name field to import all tracks. Could you please help me? Thank you.

This is what I see when I click File/Open Folder or File/Add Folder. There are two data entry fields at the bottom, Name and Filter. No problem with All Files for filter because I want all files, but what should I be putting in the Name field, or how else should I be importing all files into the library? It was easy in 3.9. I've spent hours try to find how to do in 4.0.5 without success. Thank you in anticipation for your advice.
