Keep order of files from LOADLIST in Multi-Rename Tool ✔

Post by *hi5 »

I'm using the LOADLIST command to load a list of files, example:

Code: Select all

c:\tmp\file-d.txt
c:\tmp\file-2.txt
c:\tmp\file-a.txt
c:\tmp\file-eee.txt
c:\tmp\file-b.txt
I select the files, open the MRT but now the order changes from the above to "date" or "old name" but I need them in that specific order so I can rename them using a counter, is there a way to preserve the order of files from the LOADLIST view?

Just make sure the Search result is shown unsorted (press Ctrl+F7) before you press Ctrl+M

Note that the order of files in the MRT can be rearranged by just dragging the list items with the mouse or by pressing Shift+CursorUp/Shift+CursorDown. This is especially useful when using counters, like in your case.

Thanks, that solves it. 20+ years of TC, never used unsorted before :D

@Dalai that works too but gets tedious for larger lists and the LOADLIST file is already in the correct order, but good reminder.
