Change (embedded) characters in tag field

Dear friends, I am struggling with a probably small problem.

In the 'Genre' field I want to replace one specific character,

for example replace character \ with \\

I think I've done this in the past but can't seem to find it again

Replacing characters can be done via an action of type Replace. However, I'm curious about your concrete example: in Mp3tag, the double backslash \\ is used as a multiple-fields separator.

That means, if you enter Genre1\\Genre2 you end up with two genre fields (you can use the extended tag dialog at Alt+T to check).

So if you want to split an existing field into multiple fields, an action of type Split Field by Separator is the way to go.

Hey Florian, I discovered through a customer that "Genre" with \\ instead of , works better with the ROON app.
Hence I want to change Genre One,Genre Two to Genre One\\Genre Two. Unfortunately, until now I can't figure out how to do this
Best regards, Fernand

Then I suggest trying the Split Field action I've mentioned above with , as separator.

Tested and working, thx :slight_smile:
