Hello everyone,

I stumbled across this message while trying to rename a description. I'd like to know what this error message 
actually means. it's just a wav not a "split file" or anything.

The message is because BaseHead thinks the file is a split file due to the filename ending with _1. Do you have the following option enabled as this causses BH to detect spits using the end character of the filename like above instead of iXML data

Thank you Jason.
Interesting, but No, that option is not enabled in my case.
Tho the files are actually named SI-L2-WATER_58_2.wav and SI-L2-WATER_58_1.wav
(like many others...erf.)

Mm weird. Tried same operation on files with same nomenclature. like "SI-FOLEY1_1_1" and "SI-FOLEY1_1_2" 
And their description can be modified without error...

Edit: Happens only to mono files named as such.

It's cuz Split files can have _1.wav, _2.wav, _3.wav, _4.wav ending also.
I just removed this safeguard in the code on PC.

So version 2023.6.17 or higher will no longer prevent this.  8)
