I want to keep the order of items in the list I'm dragging from

I want to keep the order of items in the list I'm dragging from

i.e the sorting of the items in Renamer won't be determined by the header columns of Renamer.

What is the best way to do it?

See the "Preserving the original order" section on the wiki:

Re: I want to keep the order of items in the list I'm dragging from

I think what I was looking for was one paragraph before.

Canceling automatic sorting

To cancel the automatic sorting, right-click on the column headers. A context menu appears (see the figure above). Select the Cancel sorting (last) option. Once you cancel the automatic sorting, newly added items will simply appear at the end of the current list, in the order in which they are added.


Preserving the original order

Sometimes you have already ordered items (e.g. in Windows Explorer), and you want ReNamer to preserve that order. To do that, turn off the automatic sorting first, and only then add items to ReNamer.

Anyway, consider to cancel the automatic sorting (by default) when adding folders/files by drag N drop.
If the user wants to keep the sort, it's easier to click again one header to re-sort the list than looking for the "Canceling automatic sorting" option.

Defiantly not by default, but it could be added as an option in the Settings.

I think it would be better to find other solution, like double click on headers for canceling, or something else.
