I managed to install Tag & Rename 3.4.6. The program runs fine and I can open, access and mark files in the file explorer.
But things go wrong trying to rename the files.
Tag & Rename uses masks to determine what mask equals what information in the filename/ ID3 tag. The masks are built like say: %1 - %2 (artists - title)
When I enter the mask in the input field, the input is somehow changed automagically, ie: '%1' becomes '<'. Every second character typed is replaced with '<' in fact. So '%' remains '%' but '%x' is replaced with '<'. This is kinda frustrating, as I am this close to using this killer app, which sadly has no worthy MAC alternatives.
On a sidenote: Newsleecher 3.9 final works perfectly. For now, ofcourse the ability to drag and drop .nzb files onto the file queue doesn't work and since the app doens't have a .nzb file import option, I had to resort to specifying a NZB autoimport folder, but that is just fine with me. This is another one of those programs which sadly doesn't have any decent MAC alternatives, if you ask me. None have a good auto unrar/ autopar function, but this one does it all for you. So if anybody else is wondering if the current versions of both apps work together: they do!
Anyway, back to Tag & Rename: can anybody point me in the right direction to fix my (seamingly) small issue? It would make my life a little easier.
I already tried setting the locale via the terminal, but that doesn't help. Seems there's something wrong with keyboard input and not the system's locale.
thanks in advance!
