Hazel changes file format Tue Apr 02, 2019 5:18 am • by marcinsadowski27
Hello,

I'm new to Hazel and wanted it to automatically rename my WAV files by the date created. However if I run the rule, it changes the name but also file format to something like UNIX or Text file. I want it to remain WAV file as it was, but only change the name of it. Could you guys please help me how to solve this issue?

Thanks!

If you are using the Rename action, make sure to include (or not delete the one that is there by default) the Extension attribute.

Thanks, that was the issue - I figured it out in the meantime, but thanks a lot!
