Hello Script Master Trix,
I have two questions regarding your script that will save me a lot of work, but I am not so adept at following the instructions here to get it to work correctly.
1. I just tried out the AR2.3. I have several files with "last name, first name" that I want to convert to "first name last name". You obviously designed the script to perform this task, however, I cannot get it to do by just running it on the selected tracks.
When I run it after installation (just doulbe click on file) the resulting window proposes in yellow "first name, lastname, (with the extra comma after last name) and then under album artist it proposes "artists, various".
So my artist field of "Mtukudzi, Oliver" yielded a proposal of "Oliver, Mtukudzi," and with AA as "Artists, Various" I suppose since it is a compilation LP. All I want in this case, of course, is "Oliver Mtukudzi".
I tried to follow your instructions in this thread about the ' before the mode, but the default looks like it is already for set up for my goal >
mode = 0 'Firstname Lastname -> Lastname, Firstname
'mode = 1 'Lastname, Firstname -> Firstname Lastname
Am I supposed to change something else somewhere else in the script editor? It is all Greek to me.
2. Also, you mentioned the multiple artist feature in reply to a user above:
I have artist fields with multiple artists separated by commas. I would like to separate them by semi-colons for the MM feature. Since I cannot achieve the goal above, this one escapes me too.
Any hints to get me rolling? Thanks in advance
