[X] Possible bug - case conversion behaviour with brackets

I'm not sure if this is a bug or is working as designed, but I often use the Case Conversion feature to correct where for some reson people have used some lower case words in title for example

I Get by With a Little Help From my Friends

Normally Actions > Case Conversion corrects this, however it always changes the case immediately after a bracket to lower case, even if it's already correctly in upper case.


I Get by (With a Little Help From my Friends)


I Get By (with A Little Help From My Friends)

I have only noticed this with an open bracket ( or a square bracket [

So every time have to manually capitalise the first bracketed word which is a bit of an inconvenience.

I couldn't see an obvious option anywhere to change it.

Thanks for your help


When you define an action for case-coversion mp3tag asks for "Words begin from/after any of".
Just enter there ([ .

Like many other users you are caught in the same trap too.
What do you think, for what is the third option good for in the action dialog "Case conversion"?
==> Words begin from/after any of:

Begin Action Group Case conversion TITLE

Action #1
Actiontype 1: Case conversion
Field _________: TITLE
Case conversion: Mixed Case
Word begins after: ( <== Note: there is a space and a open round bracket
End Action Group Case conversion TITLE (1 Action)


I'm having the same problem. When I follow your instructions and apply the action, every other letter in the title is capitalized.

What am I doing wrong?

What were you expecting? You selected Mixed Case ...

Sorry, I do not understand, in which mode could it be the same as the problem from "wondermouse"?

The open poster's problem was ...
... when applying a "Mixed Case" conversion ...

... not to get this ...
I Get By (with A Little Help From My Friends)

... but want to get this ...
I Get By (With A Little Help From My Friends)

This can be achieved as described in post #3.
