Hi Julian,

You're right that the Hierarchy classifier uses both "|" and "/" as
hierarchy separators by default. However you can easily change this by
specifying a "-separator" option to the Hierarchy classifier, eg:

classify Hierarchy -metadata dc.Title -separator "\|"

if you just want "|" to be the separator.

All the best,
