Glad you like it, Deviant!

DP, I think he was referring to the ability to manually edit multiple files at once, as opposed to the automatic tagging.

And yeah, someday I will get to this, but probably not soon. I did see your tweet about lots of poorly named files, and batch editing would definitely help with this.

Some other things you can do in the meantime to help with this:

1. You *CAN* batch edit from the command-line, on all systems, including windows. For example you can write the same series name to all files in a folder very easily:

Code:
ComicTagger  -s -f -t cr -m "series=Plastic Man"  Plas*.cb*

See the wiki for more examples, or ask for help here.

2. If your filenames are just not as complete as the ones on Comic Vine, you can change the "Name Length Delta Threshold" (under Identifier settings) from its default setting of 5.

To explain by example, if you had a set of files called "Astro City ##.cbz", they wouldn't match Comic Vine, since the full title there is "Kurt Busiek's Astro City", and the length difference between that and "Astro City" is greater than 5 characters (letters). If you bump the number up to, say, 20, the auto-identification will work.

Hope this helps!

Yeah I got stuck into the CLI on my mac and managed to re-series several hundred files - all good! Another big ask, what about sequential re-numbering?

I am very please to have a few thousand re-tagged CBZs, my CBL library is great now!

I don't have plans for anything like that soon. I am sure you could get a dedicated renaming tool to help with this, though.

Just how badly named are your files? I would love to see some examples!

I use Rename for Mac for renaming files. It's absolutely great for batch renaming and is invaluable when it comes to series because there's a sequential numbering option. You can also change what number the sequence starts from. It can be found at http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/33659/rename.

You'll have to add the files to the Rename queue in the sequential order you want them, FYI. This can be time-consuming, I know, but doubt there's much of a better way to do it. It also has options for removing a specified number of characters at the beginning or end of the filename and adding prefixes or suffixes.

My system is I have folders for different series and then in a given folder, I have subfolders for different volumes. My naming system is Series Name v# [volume number] ### [issue number].
