Hello there,

Forgive me in advance for my complete newbieness and lack of any js knowledge. Just bought the full licence and I bloody love this program, but I'm struggling with one small issue.

I've already read this threadhttp://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/4422.page#10686) about the number of digits in the Track No. field, but I'm not sure how to implement the code.

Basically I want my tracks to look like this:

01. Smoove & Suonho - A Little Soul
10. Smoove - Summertime

and they're coming out like this:

001. Smoove & Suonho - A Little Soul
010. Smoove - Summertime

Even though there are only two digits in the Track No. field. Can anyone help me please?

Can you show us your rename mask ?

Hey Paul, sure thing. Thanks for your reply.

On reflection, it seems to be that the rename masks now automatically add a '0' to the start of the filename regardless. I sorted that problem (by removing the + at the start of the mask), but have encountered a new one (I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong).

There's now a space at the end of every filename before the .mp3/.m4a extension. Ideally I'd get rid of the mp3/.m4a file extension entirely, but - failing that - how can rid myself of that extra space, please?

e.g. Turn

01. James Brown - There It Is (Live) .mp3

into

01. James Brown - There It Is (Live).mp3
(or ideally)
01. James Brown - There It Is (Live)

I don't see why you would not want the file suffix (.mp3, .mp4 ectera), that helps the OS know what type of file it is.

You have a ' ' at the end because you have
+ ' '
at the end of your mask just remove that.

An embarrassingly simple fix - thought so. Thanks again, Paul.

Removing the file extension displayed on OSX doesn't render the file unreadable, though.
