I don‘t know, if it’s a bug or not.
I want to sync and make separate folders for each playlist. And it’s necessary to trim and rename files. But Musicbee doesn’t recognize my settings. No matter what I do, filename is always same (the original). While not syncing to separate folders, filenames are trimmed and renamed.

A screen shot of your setting will be very helpful here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

when synching playlists to separate folders, each playlist file is copied to the playlist folder using: 999-Artist - Title.xxx as the filename template where 999 is the position in the playlist

Hi, thanks for answers.
Here are my settings:


And here the result:


My car audio just likes 1000 files per folder and doesn't like some special symbols.
That's the reason why I have to rename. The only possibility for me is using the "send to" option.
But it's a bit laborious, cause I've to delete folder contents first as I have dynamic autoplaylists,
which sorts out songs and sync would do this automatically. But when it's not a bug and there's no workaround I've to live with it.

best regards

Thanks for the screenshot.

Please copy/paste here the complete template for the music files.

This is what I use to pair down the length of long paths and file names. This limits the path/file name to a maximum of 150 characters plus the disc and track numbers.
Code
$RemoveSortWords($Left(<Album Artist>,50))\$Left(<Album>,50)\<Disc-Track#> - $Left(<Title>,50)

Thanks for help phred, but doesn’t work for me with separated folders. My template works also, but only when I don‘t use folder separator.

Best regards
