Just wanted to point out that I do realize I have no replacement for the matched string in that format string ..
The reason for that is that it is not obvious to me how to specify NULL as replacement .. and I already tried using ( ) to select a sub-match, and then using $1 to apply the sub-match as replacement .. and I was getting regexp error ..
So, I would appreciate an example on how to specify NULL as a replacement value .. and or how to apply sub-matches as replacement
Another question .. pertains to use of absolute paths ..
How do I specify a starting absolute path for the conversion?
I started my format string with e:\dir\dir .. but instead of actually using the absolute path, mp3tag created these path elements under the folder where the songs to be renamed where .. like:
It would seem obvious that using placeholders like %_parent_directory%, %_directory%, etc is the way to go .. but my previous attempt at using those yielded incorrect results due to the different levels of nesting of the individual tracks ..
This is a continuation of my initial post in this topic .. I am doing Convert --> tag - filename
And in the format string, I have used:
The preview seemed to suggest it would work and the files will be written at the correct absolute path .. but that did'nt happen. Instead the files were written with respect to the current top directory where the tracks being renamed reside.
