Meta data and file structure

I have just downloaded the 10.1.2 Moose release and have a question.

How do I set up preferences to give me the ability to correct meta-data from files that I have structured using the following format?


Hi, if you set Preferences:File and Folder Correct:Correct Metadata from Filename:Rename Mask to %trackno%-%title% and then run Action:File and Folder Correct:Correct Metadata from Filename that should do what you want.

Yes, I tried that but it didn’t work. It refused to read the file name.

Try shutting Jaikoz, reopening and retrying I think there maybe some sort of caching issue when you change this mask.

Hi Paul, I did as suggested and it did not help. See attached. Thanks

A post was split to a new topic: Jaikoz rename masks

Okay it worked for me so maybe you could email an example file over and I will retest to see if I can get it working.

Is there any update? Thank you

Sorry, Im on holiday for a week, will have to look at this when I get back.

At first I would uncheck Only populate fields if empty.
If that doesn’t help I would try to change some files to track# - name
and use the mask %trackno% - %title% and try again.
This mask works for me all the time.
good luck.

Hi, okay there are two issues

  1. The files you gave me have a space before the hyphen (e.g 09 -Waltz in d minor Op.39.) so the Rename mask should be %trackno% -%title% not %trackno%-%title% (note the space to the left of the hyphen)

  1. However there is a bug that means changes to the Correct Metadata from Filename Rename Mask will not take affect until you restart Jaikoz, I have raised a bug and fixed for next release -

So in the meantime you need to modify your rename mask, then restart Jaikoz and then it should work for you.

Now fixed in Jaikoz 11.0.4 Tad released June 7th 2021
