Hello,

Im wondering if there is a way for Jaikoz to automatically process a "this" for "that" option?

For example, I want {} and [] sub'd for () as well as some other grammar oddities.

How can I make it process my entire library?

You can replace words and remove punctuation but you cant actually replace punctuation (your case). But you could use Edit/Find and Replace , would have to do four times

{ -> [
( -> [
} -> ]
) -> ]

Thank you!!

Its better than doing it for each file!

Is that the ONLY thing that will change?

Also, can I do the same for file names? As in... sometimes I've had dupes and some of the dupes that were left over were labeled (3), (4) etc can I delete those on the file name string?

Lastly, you mentioned replacing words, how can I automate changing ft, featuring, etc to Feat.?

Yes you can do it for any column

Word Replacers are defined in Preferences:Manipulators:Word Replacer and for a given word replacer there is a From and To list. Then to use a word replacer you have to assign them to a Local Correct for a particular column in Preferences:Local Correct:AutoFormat. You can see by default they are already using replacer1 Word replacer.

Then you run using Action:Local Correct:Correct Artist ... Correct Album ectera. So you can only use them on these defined columns at the moment, for example you cannot run Local Correct against the Cat No column.

I noticed that the word replacer doesnt allow for capital differences.

For example, I want to change feat to Feat.

Am I wrong?

Next, with the "this for that" option, can the "that" part of it be left blank and it just deletes what I want?

Example, as I said earlier, I want to find all of the (3) etc I can in the filename and I want to delete them.

If I leave it blank will it process it that way?
