File Rename Mask First Letter of Artist query does work, my brain doesn't. (RESOLVED)

Hi there,

My music library is setup with a folder structure like this

e:\music\first letter of artist name\artist\album\

up until recently (sorry, not sure exactly when to the date or release #), the following rename mask was working as expected per the folder structure:

+ ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,'/')
+ ifnotempty(album,'/')
+ ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,' - ')
+ ifnotempty(album,' - ')
+ ifmultidisc(ifnotempty(pad(discno,2),' - '))
+ ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ')
+ title

at some point, as you can see in the screen shot here, the first letter portion of the mask stopped working. i am not sure if i mucked something up , or if something broke with songkong.

how can i get this working again? i am making quite the mess of my collection and could use some help to fix it :slight_smile: if there is any additional info/logging/etc i can provide to assist, please let me know.


i may have just fixed it myself. the masks are attached to the current profile, aren’t they. i think i was editing the mask i made in the wrong place, and thus never running with the edits i made :wink:

Confirmed, I’m an idiot :slight_smile: learn from my mistake: make sure when you edit a mask from preferences, that you have the current profile set as you intend to run it. what i did was assume that the masks were global, not per profile. i ended up not running the mask that i edted because it was under the default profile.

Yes, masks are globally available to all profiles, but different profiles can set different masks from the available masks.
