      If a separator is placed in brackets, then it is ignored. If an error is detected in parentheses, the movie will be added to the group '< ?()? >'.
      For actors field, the information in brackets is removed from the group name.
      It is possible to remove information in brackets for all multiple fields in options menu.
      Also given the number of (I (II (III (IV ... (XXX to denote an actor, I added a patch (active or not in options menu) to disregard this parenthesis in this case.
