Questions & Answers

Can you make it so that renaming a song always renames the song folder too and not do it in an unpredictable way?

Renaming a new song in S1 usually renames the song folder too. But after a certain amount of time or after a certain amount of actions, it doesn't happen anymore. The song is renamed but the song folder stays the same (often keeping the anonymous default s1 folder name with the date in it). I wonder why this happens, I end up with lots of anonymous song folders, hard to manipulate.

Have you tried the "Save to New Folder" feature? That's what I use whenever I'm renaming a song.

I also rename the song in order to keep a tidy Songs folder and save disk space, using the "save to new folder" feature duplicates the song, it doesn't delete the original song folder, you then have to manually go looking for the unused folder and delete it,

Yes, save to new folder is a work around, however one would lose the clips not associated with the current song when doing so. The loss of folder rename occurs around the time of saving, or rendering of audio within the song.
Thank you ahead of time,  for addressing this very old and needed issue (2016!).
