1.6.5 - Import & Sort: NO Dummy, moody etc.

Post by m.Th. »

There is a bug in the new Import & Sort engine. Because the letters „m, d, y” have special meanings, we cannot enter as custom destination folders words which contain at least one of these letters because they are replaced with the actual numerical values.

So if I have the following custom folder name:
Import and sort.png
The name of the resulting folder will NOT be „Dummy” but a mix of letters and numbers.

I think that the easiest solution is to add a checkbox under the name of the folder with the label „Folder name has special characters”. If the checkbox is checked („On”) then the behavior will be as it is now. If the checkbox is NOT checked („Off”) then the folder name will not be processed by the function which replaces the special characters.

The value of this checkbox should be saved between the sessions.

whatever you choose, it should be applied to 'Video subfolder' as well
I would go a little bit further:
import_subfolders.png

However, it's better to have single tag system, without splitting to {} and []
