Is there a way to retain order shown in Windows Explorer?

Postby Sevla » Sat Oct 26, 2019 8:15 pm

I'm renaming a bunch of songs to put them in the album order (ex: SongName.mp3 ---> 01. SongName.mp3). However, because the File List sorts the files alphabetically, I can't use the Numbering Module effectively.

In the WIndows Explorer I can sort them by number using their metadata. Is there a way I can do the same in BRU?

Renaming Options -> ID3 -> Extract ID3 Data

Now with that...

if the track number is in the tag
if the tag is in a format that is correctly recognized by BRU


Those two are not a given.
I just looked at a few files, & none fully displayed as expected.

Sevla - try Tag&Rename. It's a much easier track renamer. You can define your own rename masks based upon tags. Very easy.
