How would I do this with Mp3Tag?
My filenames are 01 Title Of Song -- can go up to three digits if a multidisc, e.g 101 / 201, etc
So... I need to remove ANY number characters, plus the leading space... and copy what's left to the Title field.
Mask: %track% %title%
Also, see the section in the documentation about first steps
I managed what I wanted via a two step process:
Convert > Filename-Tag
-- this puts my filename into the title field (still with leading track number)
Actions > Actions (quick) > Replace with regular expression
Regular Expression: ^\s*[0-9]+\s*
Numbers gone from title field!
You could have done it in a single step:
Mask: %dummy% %title%
I wonder why you wanted to throw away existing data....
Thanks for the %dummy% tip -- that's much simpler.
Not throwing away anything -- my filenames are for sequential listing in file browser: [track no.] [Title] -- I'm keeping those as they are.
But obviously, I don't want the track number in the Title tag.
I then use the track number wizard to populate the Track No. tag.
... yeah sorry, that's makes it sound like I want to get rid of the numbers from the filename... not what I meant!
