Osx - can't create custom file naming script

Hi there,

I’m working on a Mac and trying to create custom file naming scripts. When under ‘options → file naming → edit script’ I can’t find a method to create my own scripts.

Am I missing something here?
I would like to rename all my filenames according to tags and place them in newly organised folders.


You haven’t mentioned which version of Picard you are using. If the version is prior to 2.7, then you are limited to just the one file naming script. You can’t create additional scripts but can edit the one script. If the version is 2.7 or later, have you tried the “Add a new script” command from the “Script” section of the menu bar in the script editor window?

Note that menu on macOS is on the top of the screen, and not inside the window as on this Windows wcreenshot. But Mac users should be used to this :wink:

I’ve used a lot of different operating systems over the years but have never used a macOS system in my life, so I didn’t know that. Thanks for the clarification. (And I learned something new today.)
