Tag from Filename

    This function takes part of the folder and filename and extracts the tags out of it, based on the specified parameter format.

    Parameters must be included within the "<" and ">" sign. The easiest way to insert a parameter is to position the cursor in the combo box and then click on the Parameter in the Parameter Group Box.

    Once a new Format is used, it exists only temporary for the session. If the new format should be kept for later re-use, it can be stored, by pressing the "Add Format To List" button. Formats no longer needed can be removed, by selecting them and pressing the "Remove Format From List" button.

    Lets asume we have following folder / file combination:

    C:\Music\Eagles\Long Road out of Eden (2007)\01-No more walks in the wood.mp3

    Parameter

    Results in

    <K>-<T>

    Track = 01, Title = "No more walks in the wood"

    <B> (<Y>)\<K>-<T>

    Album = "Long Road out of Eden", Year = 2007, Track = 01, Title = "No more walks in the wood"

    <A>\<B> (<Y>)\<K>-<T>

    Artist = Eagles, Album = "Long Road out of Eden", Year = 2007, Track = 01, Title = "No more walks in the wood"

    <A>\<X>\<K>-<T>

    Artist = Eagles, Track = 01, Title = "No more walks in the wood". Note: The "<X>" ignored the Album level

    Another use Case is to remove unwanted parts of the file. Let's asume you have a file named:

    01-Some Title_garbage

    using either <K>-<T>_<X> or <K>-<T>_garbage will ignore the unwanted part of the file
