Converter: Copy other files

In Converter Setup:
Copy other files: %album%.png
The pattern of %album% does not seem to resolve to anything.

Is this limited to only %filename% and %filename_ext% ?

Also, is there a "search" button somewhere to search all topics?

Thank you.

The little question mark at the end of the input field shows instructions and tells it only supports those two fields you quoted. I actually didn't even remember it does any titleformatting as it's not really dealing with any tracks to parse titleformat info from. It's supposed to be extra per-directory operation once conversion is finished. Typical usage would be to use it with wildcards like *.png;*.log;*.txt.

Thank you for the quick response. It now makes sense that this command is performed "When done" so it no longer has access to the file tags.
Thanks again.

Sorry, one other question. When looking at the console log, it appears to log an error: "Copying: [invalid location]". Can this be ignored? I do not see any other errors and it reports success at the end. It is set to create multi-track files. This is the log:
Code: [Select]

Thank you.

The useless "[invalid location]" log entry is removed in the latest foobar2000 v2.2 preview version.
