    Filename & Restricted characters

    hi,
    I have upgraded to 16.6 and I have a problem with the restricted characters.
    I have made it so that the ; is replaced with a ,

    ( mainly this is need in the artist & the composer tags )

    on doing this I get a / instead of the , in iTunes

    pls find attached screen shots2019-01-26.png2019-01-26 (1).png

    I believe Filename Restricted Characters only affects the filename and not your tags.

    That has been my experience, and I use the restricted characters in my tags, though using the restricted characters in post editing, is problematic.

    ';' is a special character in the Tags for dBpoweramp, it separates multiple artists, when written to ID Tags it is written correctly for the tag format (such as / for ID3 tags).

    yes, this is exactly where I get the problem.
    do you think I should leave the setting to default and make the changes manually to separates multiple artists ??

    Add the DSP effect 'ID Tag Processing' on the Manipulation tab select:

    Multiple Artists to 'Artist1; Artist2' for non multiple artist aware programs

    iTunes is not compatible with multiple artists.

    hi, Mr Spoon,
    apologies for the delay in reply.

    just to clarify : after i do the above, sugested by you, can i make the ";" to be replaced by "," in the "Tag & filename" settings ??

    No, they would be presented with ; between them.
