Expanding Multi-Rename Tool options - Advanced mode

Post by *hi5 » 2018-01-26, 20:27 UTC

The Multi-Rename Tool is of course very useful, but there have been some suggestions* for additional features. To see if there is enough interest in adding more 'advanced' features such as rename + move to target panel, copy vs rename, select files after rename to name three I've set up this poll.
If you you have other suggestions please post them below or in the TC Suggestions thread and I'll update the links below.

* reference posts for some ideas

Free text edit of file names in the "New name" column.

With e.g. 5 files selected, enter the multi-rename tool.

Click a new button called "Edit Names" to enter editor mode.

The column "New name" becomes a text editor. You can freely move up and down in the 5 lines. You can freely edit file names and cut-copy-paste like in an editor but each line are separate.

Only when you click button "Start!" should the 5 lines with the new names be error checked and illegal names or duplicate names be flagged.

During the "Edit Names" mode other multi-rename features could be disabled.

This feature is already there but not as you described, press <F10> a context menu with the following options will open:
TC Help wrote:Load names from file: Specify a text file from which the new names should be loaded
Edit names: Save current target names to a text file, edit them, and paste back.
Configure editor: Choose a different editor to edit the files. Make sure that the editor saves as plain text!
The menu can be opened with F10.

Thanks for that, I was not aware about it. I will try to use that.
