Multiple Variables in Subdirectories?

I would like to have my book files in directories my genre / publisher / series, etc, or author / series, etc, but the File Manager "Move" option only seems to allow for one level of subdirectories and the "Rename" option seems to ignore directories. Is there another way to do this that I haven't found yet? Or do you have to use an escape character on the file name?

Hi,
You can create 2-level structure using File Manager in 2 steps:
1. "Create folder by"
2. "Create folder by"+"Include Book folders"

Rename function doesn't ignore directories, but it renames only books (not directories)

I see, thank you. That works for the two level case.

If you're ever looking for new feature ideas - I wouldn't mind a more robust version, likethis example from Media Monkey. And the ability to remove all unused authors, genres, etc - that would also be fantastic.

Thanks again for your help.
