Mp3tag Version: 2.84a



When tagging multiple-disc albums, I usually let Mp3tag fetch the album name (or a portion thereof) from the %_directory% field, using the Format Value Action. The album name then may look something like this:

"The Ultimate Classical Album . CD1. Relax At Home"

The latter portion of the preceding album name i.e. "CD1. Relax At Home", is derived from %_directory%.

Now, I need to format this particular album field with the Mp3 tagging tools at hand, so that that the second DOT in the album field-- the one which follows directly after the CD-number, is preceded with a space. It should then look like this:

"The Ultimate Classical Album . CD1 . Relax At Home"

Could you please assist me with a regular expression, or another scripting function that will take care of this?

Your assistance is always greatly appreciated.

Thank you to you both, stevehero and ohrenkino, for your quick responses.

Before I submitted my original post, I was already employing exactly the method proposed here by ohrenkino, but I thought there was an even quicker method. tongue.gif

Stevehero, I am going to experiment with your proposal as well. When you went "overboard" biggrin.gif in the beginning, it scared the wits out of me, but your final final expression may just save me step or two.

Thanks again!
