Problem with special characters at Tag - Filename

Thread split from here


Excellent, that worked great. While I was renaming that album (Requiem for a Dream), I found another problem. All the tracks have a colon (:slight_smile: in the track name, so when I go to rename them via "Tag - Filename", it'll say there are illegal characters in the filename. I tried adding a rule to the "Standard" Actions (in the Convert menu) to replace ":" with " -" in the _FILENAME variable, but that didn't help. Is it not possible to run those Actions when doing "Tag - Filename"?

Please open another topic, if your question has nothing to do with the topic of the thread.

To solve your problem, you might have a look at the $replace or the $validate scripting functions in the Mp3tag Help.
