some questions


#1

Hi there, i'm trying to switch from helium2 to mp3tag for various reasons, and
will have some questions cause they are not very alike, so pls bare with me a bit

First, upon renaming file (tag to filename) i tried to put my naming scheme but i have
problem with [] characters, i got sytax error with this format string
%artist% [%year%] %album%$num(%track%,2) %artist% - %title%
Is it possible that mp3tag doesn't recognize ] character?

Secondly, is it possible that i save my various naming schemes, and that just recall them from some template?

thank you

  1. The brackets [ and ] are special characters in Mp3tag's scripting language (as described here at the bottom of the page). Just escape them using single quotes ' like %artist% '['%year%']' %album%\$num(%track%,2) %artist% - %title%
  2. They are saved in the history and you can select them from the drop-down lists that are available on the various converter dialogs.
Kind regards, Florian

wow, tnx for quick reply! usually have to wait 2 weeks to get an answer at my old tag forum

I tried with ' and it worked flawlessly, i see the history in drop down menu too
Will it be possible that mp3tag remove the cue;jpg files to destination folder too?

This program is superfast!

This is not possible using the converter Tag - Filename but you can try using an action Format value for the field _DIRECTORY to simply rename the directory and move all files included to the new destination.

Kind regards,

ok, i think i managed to do so with _directory field
This Action thing seems powerful tool, so basically i can use actions for my renaming needs,
and no need for tag to filename?
Thank you very much florian, one final question for now, what string should i use (if possible) so my renamed folder ends up in parent directory ie music, not inside working folder?

edit. after donating, should i send some info or it's an automated process?

You can use ..\ to go one folder up, e.g. ..\%artist% - %album%

You don't need to do anything. I'll send you a thank you mail as soon as I answer my inbox.
