As the title says, i am renaming my file based on the genre, artist, and title tages. It works perfectly, except that when i do [%genre%] %title% - %artist% the brackets are unshown, both in the preview and after hitting accept. However curly brackets and parenthesis seem to work fine.
It isnt really a big deal to use another method of separating genres, but i do like how clean the square brackets look. Is this problem on my end, or with the program?
The square brackets have a special function in the converter: they enclose optional text and are not displayed .... unless you use ':
'['%genre%']' %title% - %artist%
Hmm, probably, both cases are true.
See helpfile ... https://docs.mp3tag.de/scripting
section "Characters with special functionality"
... and do understand the difference between ...
[%genre%] ... and ... '['%genre%']'
Tag > Filename conversions use the Mp3tag scripting functions where the square brackets are used as special characters. See here: https://docs.mp3tag.de/scripting
Enclose them in single quotes to use them literally.
Ah, thanks for the info. I wasnt even thinking about special characters, so i guess the fault was with me.
Thanks for the quick help
