I have tried this feature and it does not work for me. Most of my mp3s are formatted with [Artist] – Title. The quare brackets are actually in the filename, but I do not want them in the tags. So I enter, using your wildcards, [%1] – %2 as the filename format I have, but the tagger still writes the square brackets into the tag. Your parser is not the only tagger that has problems with this. Do I have to write my own parser to take these out and then put them back later or are you going to fix it? As many have said before, it seems silly to purchase a program that requires me to change my habits.
