Need help with Action


#1

I have a Tag List that have some composers, like this

  1. mouse game (price)
  2. whatever
  3. jack of cats (price)
  4. icicles
  5. night vision (price)

I use "%trash%. %title% (%composer%)"
and I only get tags for the titles with composers...

Is there a way to do this in one action?

I don't think you can do it in one single step, but what you can do is:

  1. Use %dummy% instead of %trash%, otherwise Mp3tag will create a field called TRASH inside your ID3v2 or APEv2 tag - %dummy% is a built-in variable that tells Mp3tag to skip that part.
  2. Use only %dummy%. %title% as formatstring and then use a RegEx Replace action to delete the text inside the brackets (including the brackets) from the TITLE field.

Thanks, I'll use %dummy% instead!

Regarding the tag I want to catch the %composer% tag thats in a few of
the titles...
I could do it in two go's but it would be good if an action could see that
if there are no brackets it should only take the titel and leave the composer
tag blank....
Hmmm
