Changing colon to dash in TV titles

Post by neutra » 05 Dec 2018, 13:51

Simple question and I'm sure it's been asked before so I apologize up front.

Want to change the default replacement of ":" in TV show titles to " -" (space + dash) instead of "/"

Can someone direct me to where I can make that change? Thanks SO much. LOVE FileBot!

FileBot has a built-in convenience method for replacing the : colon character:

Code: Select all

{n.colon(' - ')}
That being said, you're on macOS, so : is allowed in the file name. However, for historic reasons, Finder will display it wrong:
