After a lot of search with no result I wonder if there is a way in order to write track number in x/x format using the total tracks Tag-Tag Convert function on a per-folder basis...
Running 2.79 version and using the following string:
the program seems perfectly able to write track numbers and total tracks, but only for ALL files selected just as if they were in a single folder/album and then I do not know if there is a way to write total tracks number resetting total tracks autonumbering for each sub-folder.
Thanks stevehero, but I'm not sure if there was a misunderstanding...
Currently I have a "Rock" folder containing a lot of sub-folders named as each Artist/Album title.
All tags of all audio-files are already written.
Now I want to set all Track numbers followed by Total Tracks number of each folder/album letting the existing track numbers and "simply" adding the folder/album related Total Tracks number.
Running Mp3tag (2.79) and select "Rock" directory then ALL files existing in all sub-folders result as selected.
Using "Convert > Tag - Tag" function with the following string
it does renumber ALL tracks in ascending order and then add a related Total Tracks number that does result as incorrect because it does consider all selected files like in a single folder.
If I add each sub-directory individually then that way does work correctly, but I do not want to select individually over than 750 sub-folders.
May be it is a mission impossible...
In my specific case since the player in my car shows the disc number of FLAC files even if it is 1/1 I've removed disc number at all from tags "replacing" that with a custom file naming/tagging that does include the 2+ disc possible info and all album-folders are named by alphanumeric.
So it has been enough for me adding a "Path" column at the end of the line and clicking on it...
Strange enough after about 5 months from the described (and solved) issue now it seems that I'm no longer able to convert TRACK tags to x/x format (on a per-folder basis, of course)...
Using the usual string $num(%TRACK%,1)/$num(%_COUNTER%,1) it writes the TOTAL track number ignoring the per-folder basis instruction (please look at the sshot in attachment): why?
None except the track numbering wizard knows anything about directory change.
So, %_counter% counts all the selected files and does not reset at a folder boundary.
You either select only files of one folder and apply the action or use the track numbering wizard.
Also, I think that the variable to count the total number of files should not be %_counter% but %_total_files%.
