Hi there. It's my first post so... sorry if I'm doing something wrong
I'm experimenting with tag and I have a question for you.
I have some artist tags arranged in this way.
artist1; artist2; artist3
and i want to convert this into
artist1 / artist2 / artist3
You can create an action of the type "Replace" for ARTIST
(see FAQs /t/967/1 on that)
Enter as search string: ;
(which is actually semicolon-blank)
Enter as Replace string: /
(which is actually blank-slash-blank)
Adding slashes to fields may play tricks: the slash is not legal for filenames. SO if you want to use the Tag-Filename converter with %artist% as part of the mask then the slash will be removed.
Also: the Windows Mediaplayer sometimes interprets the / as field separator, so that you get a group call ac and one called dc instead of AC/DC.
So: be careful with that - the semicolon was not so bad after all.
The $validate() function is a scripting function. https://docs.mp3tag.de/scripting/#string-functions
So if you want to create a filename with the function Convert>tag-filename then enclose the whole mask with the $validate():
$validate(%artist% - %album% _ %title%,-)
