using placeholders in actions


#1

Hi,

I want to create a action to export album covers. It is not working.
Nothing happens when I create a new action export covers and try to export them with that structure:

C:...\%_directory%\folder

I also tried this path:

C:...\%album%\folder

I use Mp3tag v2.39 and WinXP. What am I doing wrong? Maybe you have an idea?

Thanks in advance.

What kind of path is that?


#3

Are the ... you problem? This just stands for some folders I didn't want to write.
It colud also be this way:

C:\%_directory%\folder

I want to put every embedded cover of an album in a extra folder with the name of the album (directory).

So these folders don't exist?
I guess creating new folders is not possible.

This means placeholders can just be used for the filename?
