Pipe character in filename

I have many filenames with a pipe character in the name, as in "file | name"

mp3tag changes the pipe character to "{%". Any to prevent this?


I cannot reproduce this.
What kind of procedure do you use?
If you use Convert>Tag-Filename then the pipe character is replaced with nothing as it is an illegal character for windows filenames.
If you use $validate() you would have to check what you entered there.

I forgot it being illegal for windows. The file resides on an SMB share on a Mac. Thanks for your help.
