Wow impressive job. Thanks.
I found the list overwhelming so thanks for making it so that given choices could be deleted or else going through that whole list every time one wants to change something would have taken forever.
In my case I don't understand script therefore I have the following questions regarding their meaning
What do the following symbols mean within the quotes excluding the commas " ( ), [ ], ..., <>,
& what do the following words mean within the quotes, '' into field, from field '' seen written as "' <into field>, <from field>''
I'm asking myself "Into or From what field?
I think it would have been a good idea if we actually saw before & after examples displayed so we know what each script means exactly/how the change will look like.
In my case I am interested in doing the following (if the commands are there I don't see them or rather understand them as being as such).
-1- The most important thing to me something that seems we can do with lyrics but nothing else is changing a song title or album title the way it would be written in a sentence, in other words only the 1st word capitalized and nothing else.
A Dog Gone For The Whole Summer At John's House
would be changed to: A dog gone for the whole summer at john's house
Even better is if it kept grammar rules whereby 'John's' in this case would remain capital
-2- I would like all "Remix" OR 'remix' to show as 'rmx' and "Mix" or ''mix'' to show as 'mx'
-3- and "Featuring" and/or "featuring" and/or "Feat." or "feat." as '' ft ''
I see we can do this with lyrics but not song title or Album
Are these features/choices already there (if so which are they)? and if not how can I add them/create them?
Thank you

Here is the excerpt from the Installation section of the first post of this thread:
"if you are on Vista or Win7 and you got "Product installation error", make sure you have MM3 set to "Run as Administrator"."

It is written when the MM3 and Win7 was actual, but it applies to MM4 and Win >= 8 as well.

The another solution with MM4 is to turn on the option "Install for the current user only (doesn't require admin rights)" when installing the add-ons.

Can't install on Win 8.1 with MM v4.1.4.1709

Can't install. Just get following error:

Cannot create file c:\programdata\mediamonkey\extensions\regexpreplace\uninstall.vbs

However, this file, in this location does indeed already exist. Furthermore, the extension is listed in the extensions list within MM as v4.3 with no update available.

But, under the MM Edit menu there is no entry for editing Tags (in other words, no menu entry called "RegExp Find and Replace".)

Furthermore, I can't uninstall the extension either:

Error #70 - Microsoft VBScript runtime error
Permission denied
File: "C:\ProgramData\MediaMonkey\Extensions\RegExpReplace\Uninstall.vbs", Line: 53, Column: 4
[ OK ]

I am logged in as an Administrator on the machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I use this extension on another computer and find it helpful.

-------------------------
UPDATE... I figured out my problem.. You must run MediaMonkey in Administrative mode to install this extension (and probably others too) so just right-click on the MediaMonkey shortcut and select "Run as Administrator" before installing/configuring this extension. Thereafter, you don't need to run it in Administrator mode to use it.

However, if you want to update your extensions at a later time you must be running MM as Administrator mode to do so. So... it may be helpful to just set MM to always "Run as Administrator" so you won't have the problem I did above. To do so, just right-click the MM shortcut, click Properties, select the Compatibility tab, and check the box for "Run this program as an administrator".

Although I solved the problem myself, I'm leaving this post so that Google can index the error messages above and hopefully benefit some other person that may have this problem.

Thanks for a great extension!

I have implemented that in the new version which should be ready very soon, but it will be available only to those who donated to me. It has also added a possibility to group presets into sub-menus and some another enhances.

Look forward to these added features

That sounds and looks pretty sweet! Hard to tell though, without getting into it and testing it out. I will be donating as soon as that hits!!

That's what I figured. Thanks.

Is there some sort of preset search function? If not, would that be too difficult to implement?

I have the list of presets in text format and I've sectioned them out (with spacing) by function types, like add/remove/assign digits, add/remove/assign string to begin/end;
etc. However, they are still in the original order. I was thinking one could find the number from their text list, enter in a search field, and it would come right up.
....too difficult?

Would the numbers need to actually be in the preset drop down to work? I figure numbering them directly is problematic because every time you added a new preset the numbers would change. Is this thinking correct or am I way off?

......or is there already someway to do this or something similar?

Here is the excerpt from the Usage section of the first post of this thread:
"The next control is the Shortcut text box which could be used to specify keyboard hotkey for the selected preset, for example Ctrl+T, which allows us to apply such preset to the selected tracks by the press on that hotkey."

RegExp presets in MM2 and MM3 are located on the Search toolbar, but in MM4 they are located on the separated RegExp toolbar. You could get the same configuration of toolbar buttons as before if you place RegExp toolbar next to the Search toolbar.

I upgraded MM when I moved my install to a new machine. However I now have extra spaces in between my toolbar items that I added using the Regex F&R interface. I have cycled through each preset and cannot find any reason for the extra entries. The entries are just spaces without text or icon.

How can I reset the toolbar and reiadd my presets?
