Audio Files - name in Library

Thanks again for the reply, Mike.

When I imported the audio files, I had
1: "Populate Metadata from Directories" checked on the audio import screen,
      The Directories were %COLLECTION% for most,
      but %COLLECTION%/%ARTIST%/%ALBUM% when importing full albums.
      I did a separate batch import for each of those two cases.
2: "Populate Metadata When Importing Audio" in the import settings in "Settings" was also set. Finally,
3:  the default title was "Guess from filename".

Note that all my audio files have correct title and artist mp3 tags, at least for Title and Artist.
The filename format I use for most is : "Title - Artist.mp3",
although some are "Track no, then Title": Those are the ones where I imported a full album.

However, all the audio files in the MobileSheets library screen have as the Title, "artist - title" and they are both correct, even though not what I am looking for, i.e., just the Title itself.

Does having "#1 or #2 above override the "Title" mp3 tag?

How does "Guess from filename" interpret names with the name format that I use, i.e. "Title - Artist.mp3"?
Is it possible that "guess from filename" overrides the mp3 tag, but interprets the name before the dash (-) as being the artist and the name after as being the Title? But that would not explain the entries of full albums where the filename does not include the artist, but the track no.

I hope I am being clear enough, this is all a tiny bit confusing to me.[Image: confused.gif]
