Jaikoz did 90% of the heavy lifting on 400+ Old Time Radio Shows that I wanted to clean up the tags on. But (you knew that was coming) one of the things I did was copy all the file names in to the title field since the titles were all screwed up and the file name was pretty close to what I wanted. Problem is all the titles now end in ".mp3". I though no problem word remove or word replace should do it. I added a remove mp3 and it can't find it and if I don't turn off the punctuation removal it takes the "." out so mp3 is on the end of the last word of the title. Seems that the "." is not recognized as word separator. So then I made a special punctuation remover setting that just had "." in it. That didn't do anything.

Any suggestions? Seems like we need one more mode for replacing/removing a free form string or add removing .mp3 as an acceptable rule for the default title correction.

Thanks

I can see why you came to this conclusion but . is recognised as a word seperator but the word seperator is only used for comparing values from different records during the AutoMatch process it is not used for formatting the output (AutoFormat)

Yes, ive tried to get round this but I cant, either we need to use a Word Seperator for autoformatting as well so that you can define word boundaries OR as you suggested allow replacing/removing a free form string.

I think the second option would be useful to more users, and would fit best as a replace option in the find popup, what do yout think ?
