Using colon in path


I’m new to beets and want to know, if there is a possibility to use a colon in the path?

I used to name my albums like this:
Artist: (Year) Album/Track Title

Thanks in advance!

Hi! Yes, but you will want to adjust your replace configuration to allow them:

Ah, thanks!

I additionally have to use quotes with the path, else I get an error:

configuration error: file /home/schmeckx/.config/beets/config.yaml could not be read: mapping values are not allowed here

My path now is

default: “$albumartist: ($year) $album/$track $title”

Thanks for your help!
