I was wondering if you could help me out. I am trying to rename tracks to remove the "-" that is sometimes at the end of the song name (since mp3 software gets confused as to which is the name/artist), but yet keep the "-" that correctly separates the title and artist in that same track.

Also, I need to have a space between the "-" that separates the track name from the artist. So, I would like to insert a space before it and after.

I would like to do this only after removing the "-" that is at the end of the trackname though.

Is this possible? Can you help me with it if it is? Thanks.

I'm afraid I don't quite follow your explanation, but if you show me a full example of before/after the desired operation, I'll do my best to help you.

I haven't got a macro for it but it seems the requirement is:
You have tracks named like this

But you want to remove the trailing - and also put a space before and after the first -
Artist - Title.mp3

Is that correct?
If this is wrong then can you please show us what you mean by putting it in a similar way to what I just did with 'title-artis.mp3'   Like that?
