Unfortunately it's not possible from within EasyTag. You'd have to use
other tools for that:
One option specifically for FLAC is the CLI tool "metaflac". It's easy to
use, check the man page, and is very effective to strip specific fields
from many files as you can use wildcards. For example, this command strips
the ENCODER field from all my ripped FLAC files:
metaflac --remove-tag=ENCODER */*/*.flac
A GUI option would be the tag editor Kid3 from KDE. It allows editing/
deleting of all tag fields.
I agree that EasyTag would be even better if it could display/edit all
existing fields, though from a past discussion I understood that this
would require a major rewrite of the code.
