Making the Title Field Match The Filename Field


#1

First off, killer app. The time and effort that went into building it is phenonimal.

Question:
Is there an automated method we can use to convert a Filename into a Title?

Here is an example of what I currently see:

Filename: Lykke Li - Melodies and Desires

Title: Melodies and Desires

It would be cool to be able to automatically convert to do this:

Filename:
Lykke Li - Melodies & Desires

Title:
Lykke Li - Melodies & Desires

Right now, I have to manually copy, line by line, each Filename over the Title, which I've been doing for about 3 years now every day, just have never figured out an automated method.

Thanks and hopfully this thread helps someone else out also.

Use the converter (Menu) Filename - Tag.
Enter a mask with variables and string to match the pattern of your filename(s). If your example is correct then I would suggest this mask:
%artist% - %title%
This mask would also fill the tag ARTIST and not only TITLE.
If you only want TITLE then use this mask:
%dummy% - %title%
If you want the whole filename as TITLE:
%title%
The preview function in that dialogue will guide you.

As your example varies in respect to spelling: "Melodies and Desires" vs. "Melodies & Desires" you would also have to replace the "and" by "&". For this select all files that should get modified and use the action "Replace" from "quick actions" in the toolbar.
