Automated File Renaming?

Hello! Another question for you:

I remember seeing the default directory organization in the configuration, but I'm wondering if there is a way to have MP3 Boss automatically rename files to a format you specify?

For example: I prefer to use the format   /Genre/Artist/Artist - Title.mp3

Now a lot of my mp3s are from albums in the format   /Artist/Album/TrackNumber Title.mp3  -- which really irritates me when I'm copying stuff over to my mp3 player.

Is there a way to have MP3 Boss do this for me instead of manually Copying/Pasting everything?

Thanks in advance smile

NOTE: I have been using the multiple field copying, but I'm talking specifically about the mp3's file name itself. Though automatically reassigning the directory would be great too!

Re: Automated File Renaming?

Highlight the files you want to rename in List View, and then click "AutoMove" on toolbar.

You can automatically rename, automatically move (or both) -- using whatever format you want.

As you'd expect in MP3-Boss...maybe it is a little TOO flexible, so you might want to press the F1 key for HELP once you bring up the AutoMove dialog.

Thanks for your support!

I glanced, but I guess I just wasn't using the right keywords to find that... thanks again!

Re: Automated File Renaming?

No trouble at all -- questions help me figure out what features my customers are using.

There are a bunch of features that I think a lot of customer don't realize are there:
* AutoMove/AutoRename
* Duplicate search & delete
* Automatic Beats-per-minute
* Send-to command to send a file to another program
* Click-to-Email (with auto-segment to get through your mail gateway)
* Reports (yep, more than one!)
* Artist-Fixup (correct different variations of an artist name)
* HotScan (to play just a part of a song)
* Refresh winamp playlist
* Tag editor
* CopyDown
* Detail view (well over 100 fields per songfile)
* Play Song NEXT
* Customizable profiles (including custom background for List View)
* Statistics
* Scanning options -- paths2skip, scan selected and scan all

And I'm sure I've forgotten some!
