Hello. I have a large amount of vinyl captured files which have no artist/album tagging, but are arranged in a folder structure e.g. /artist/album/track_name. Is there any easy way to map directory structure onto artist and album tagging in foobar without me laboriously having to enter all the text fields?

Cheers

If you pick that option (automatically fill values...) in the next dialog you choose from: Other and insert the path this way $directory_path(%path%)
Then you can write a pattern depending on your folder structure. Keep in mind, unwanted characters can be masked with an empty tag like %%

That is not necessary, "file names" includes parent folders (see the documentation above).

Geez Frank, I did not pay attention to that.The preview shows the path as soon as a backslash is entered. Good to know.
