I am sure this is an easy answer but can't seem to figure it out. I have loaded, corrected, and matched a batch of songs.

If I save and copy/move Jaikoz wants to put in an artist folder/album - I would like to just copy/move the files to a specific folder that I created i.e /Music/Ambient/...

Thanks

Empty the Sub Folder column first.

Thanks for the reply and one more question. Deleting/removing the Sub Column worked but now when I Save, all the songs are placed in the correct Album name in the root of my Music directory. I would like to take this one step further, i.e. I would like the compilation/multiple artists placed in /Music/Various Artists/Album Name instead of /Music/Album Name.

Thanks

Okay just set the SubFolder field to Various Artists in the subfolder field first.

Still struggling ;( - would you mind showing/telling me where to do this? I have tried to manage from the main screen by editing fields, but I assume I need to do this is in Preferences?

Thanks

When you do ordinary save it will use basefolder + subfolder + filename to construct new filename. If use Save and Move it will use
selectedfolder + subfolder + filename

There are two main ways to modify the subfolder field, either:

1. Edit the field manually, use copy and paste ectera
2. Use Action:File and Folder Correct:Correct SubFolders from Metadata
to set the subfolder based on the Preferences:File and Folder Correct:Rename Folder from Metadata:Compilation Rename mask and Rename mask

In your case just select Compilation Rename Mask to 'Various Artists' and Rename mask to nothing.
