Using metadata placeholders (%artist%) in actions


#1

Hello everyone!

Sometimes I want to change a tag field (lets say, the ALBUMSORT tag) using information from other tags.
I've been trying to accomplish this by creating and action which replaces the desired tag, but when I try to replace it using placeholders (in this case, %artist% %year%) it doesn't work because it seems to not be parsing the placeholders.

Any idea? Is it possible to do what I want?

Thanks in advance!
