title field use folder as "artist name"
« on: 8 Oct '17 - 10:23 »
Is there any way to fetch the artist name from "folder"? like can I somehow in the "formatting string" use some magical hidden feature which grabs the folder name as artist instead of %2 ?
or maybe from filename up to a certain character?

No, but you could properly tag the files, or if that is not possible, search for all the files (e.g. simply search for the folder) and then show the track info for the found files, check "override song info" and add the artist tag to the library.

I don't really use the library function, but maybe that's a good reason to start using it :)

thank you for the tip saga!
