I want my actual file names to simply be title.mps (eg. Hey Jude.mp3).
I am expecting the tags to be corrected of course as much as possible and currently, I simply use iTunes to establish playlists and genres. I have real no need for track nos etc.

My question is in how to change the Rename File from Metadata settings.
I can see how to add a field but not how to remove. Is the following correct for the rename mask? and if not, can someone help me? Or is there a way to remove a field similar to the way you can add a field?

ifnotempty2 + title

One final question, on this screen (within Preferences), I do not see a button to Save the edited changes. Am I missing something here?

Hi, so when you specify the mask you are not specifying how to change the existing mask, but how to generate the mask from the metadata so there is no need to remove a field.

So

1. Your mask is simply

Code:
title


2. But if you are using iTunes be aware that you must have Preferences:Save:iTunes Autoupdate:Automatically Update iTunes library enabled so that iTunes knows when you have renamed files. But also by default iTunes renames files itself to represent the metadata so there is no point renaming files in Jaikoz unless you have disabled Preferences:Advanced:Keeps iTunes Folder Organized disabled in iTunes

thanks Paul (Administrator)
