if I have a movie whose title ends in a "." (such as "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." or "Monsters, Inc.") the renamer truncates the "." off the end.

I am using the default rename pattern of $T{.$S}

Any idea how to stop it removing the "." ?
(the same happens if I just use $T too)

Yes, the renamer removes all "." at the end of a file or folder name. The reason is that Windows also removes all dots at the end of a folder name. So we do that also for file names to get the same result for both names.
Is that a problem or something that should be disabled for file names?

Is it a problem? Not sure - it was more that it was unexpected as having just upgraded after a long delay, the behaviour changed. At some point Ember created files called:
The Man from U.N.C.L.E..m4v
Monsters, Inc..m4v

(notice the ..)

and now with the current version it has changed its mind. It's not a big deal, but the change in behaviour caught me out so I wondered if I was missing something and the explanation of $T in the application didn't mention removal of trailing .
