Is there any way to keep the preference window open after hitting save.

I am working on fixing my "Rename folder from Metadata" and when I hit save to test the window closes, which means that I have to go through the steps to reopen.

This can get kind of tiresome.

Thanks

Robert

Saving - it's kinda misleading - means you're done tinkering, so it closes. What do you mean you "hit save to test"? Are you referring to the "U2 - Boy" example, cos those change dynamically as you type (or maybe when you tab out of the box you're editing).

I did not notice the example which was a help in starting out but the example is limited and I have to use my data to test with.

Here is what I wanted to test, which is working now.

album + (custom1=="ALBUM" ? ' [' + (catalogno.length>0 ? catalogno : asin) + ']' : '') + folderseparator + artist + folderseparator + album + ' (disc ' + discno + ')'

Once I make a change and I want to test on my data, I have to hit save, which closes the preference window. I then hit "Correct sub folder from meta data". If it is not what I want I have to the open up the preference window and go through the sequence again.

Would be nice if there was a way to "Save" my changes in the preference window but not close the preference window.

Thanks.

Robert

Trouble is Preferences are modal, leaving them open whilst you continue to use Jaikoz would be quite a change, and possibly confusing for users, I cant really see it happening.

In your particular case the example should help, I can also beef up the example song a bit so that it contains data for all fields (such as catalogno, asin, custom) which should make it more useful for you.

Paul,

Thanks, this would make it a little easier.
