For some reason it only allows to auto-rename with (2) etc. This is extremely annoying when you can't just overwrite existing files when doing complex multi-rename.

Works as designed.
And how qualifies this as a bug report.
There is a suggestion forum if you like to propose changes or new function.

TC-help (F1) - search for "auto-rename" says:
Quote:
New in TC9: When there are name collisions, e.g. because the rename mask leads to multiple files with the same name, or a file with that name already existed, then you get the option to auto-rename the files to "name (2).ext", "name (3).ext" etc. This will not be shown in the preview.

Karl

It's intentional that the Multi-Rename Tool can't overwrite existing files, so "Undo" will always work.

It's a pity. It'd be much better to have the additional buton to Overwrite and introduce the additional warning like "This will disable Undo and several files may be overwritten into one file".

I personally get this sutiation very often when renaming new uploaded files on FTP.
