TLDR: I’ve just updated to 2.8.4 from 2.8.3. I’ve used a little script in the cover art filename field in the settings for a few years, however it now seems to be ignored when I process albums.
I’ve had this snippet in my Cover Art options, in the field labelled “Use the following file name for images”, for quite a while now:
$if($gte(%totaldiscs%,2),../Artwork/,Artwork/)$if(%coverart_types%,$join(%coverart_types%, + ),front)$if(%coverart_comment%, \(%coverart_comment%\),)
It should put album artwork files into directories like this:
/Single disc album/ Artwork/file.jpg 01. Track.flac
/Multi disc album/ Artowork/file.jpg Disc 1/01-01. Track.flac Disc 2/02-01. Track.flac
But what seems to happen now, is that the artwork gets put into the same directory as the audio files, so if there are four discs, then I get a copy of the artwork in each disc directory, exactly what the snippet is supposed to prevent
Audio files get moved as expected, just that little script in the cover art filename field seems to be ignored. Perhaps there’s something I’ve missed? If it does turn out to be a bug, I’m running macOS Monterey (12.6.1), and my setup hasn’t changed beyond updating Picard.
