Is there any possible way to use the string-replacement feature of the Auto Case Fix filter based on character position? For example, if a filename (usually the <Title>) ends with a period, I want to skip that (since there's already one as part of a standard filename). It'd also be nice to avoid any filename beginning with "The" (usually the <Artist>) and other position-sensitive elements.

Thanks! :)

You can use the "" special character of the filter to perform these operations (this special character means beginning/end of the filtered string, e.g. the title field, please see the help file for more info).

So, a filter of "contains: ." would get everything that ends with a "." (period).
