Special charaters as criteria in autoplaylists?

Post by Codec » Tue Dec 26, 2017 5:29 am

Using MM Gold 4.1.19 on Windows 10 64bit Enterprise

I have read the "special Characters" section in the documentation (http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Search) but things don't seem to work as described there, I am wanting to build a number of autoplaylists based on special characters. For example, an autoplaylist that will show me any tracks that contain a semicolon ( ; ) symbol in the genre field. I have tried encapsulating the special characters within quotes like the documentation says but still get no results. See screenshot: https://ibb.co/ebRsn6

On a side note, I would also love it is if someone knows how to count how many of a certain character may be in a field. For example: An autoplaylist that shows me all tracks that contain more than two semicolons in the genre field.

The problem is that the Genre field doesn't contain the ; character. It's used for multiple values, thus it's not seen as an actual value.
