A list of strings


I am new to this program. I wanted to number the tracks name in ascending order. However, the only thing I could find was in a Google search and this answered my question using the counter string. /t/7077/1

Where can I find a list of the different strings? I have found some in help section, but not the counter.

Thanks, mymonaro

What about Tools \ Autonumbering Wizard ?


You may also want to look into using the auto-numbering wizard to renumber tracks. It's at Tools > Auto-number wizard... or Ctrl-k or use the :mt_trackwiz: button.

The 'strings' you're looking for are usually called 'placeholders' in Mp3tag. A list of them can be found on the Mp3tag Help page for Converters:


Thanks folks for the replies and suggestions. I had previously experimented with the "auto numbering wizard"; but this feature only numbers the "track" information area of the mp3 file.

Well, what would you expect from a track numbering wizard?
You would have to create a new filename if you want to have that changed.
For this use the Convert > Tag-Filename.
Enter as mask:

$num(%track%,2) - %_filename%
(provided you want to have the track number to be part of the filename)
$num(%_counter%,2) - %_filename%
If you only want to have a seqence of numbers that probably have nothing to do with the track number.

Thanks for the help.

I was able to achieve what I wanted to with the title field by using the string you suggested, being
$num(%_counter%,2) - %_filename%

I went to Convert > Tag-Tag and then in the title field mask I placed the string.
