I kinda lost you here. Are you talking about the logging capability or the undo feature?

Umm, sorry I wasn't clear, I was talking about the menu "Export list of files and undo paths" that stefan mentioned on it's post.

For me that text, I don't know why didn't have much sense and I couldn't understand what it meant. And the few times I tried to use it I used to get a flie with the empty names (because I didn't renamed anything before).

That is what I was trying to say, that maybe another name would help understand the option better.

Perhaps the name of that option is a bit cryptic, but it is consistent between the options and it makes it easy to understand the rest of them and helps identify the difference between them.

Re: Undo Feature - use BATCH file

One suggestion I'd like to make is, in addition to:

  • Export as batch renaming file (Full paths)

  • Export as batch renaming file (Only names)

I'd also like to see the following options:

  • Export as batch undo file (Full paths)

  • Export as batch undo file (Only names)

Re: Undo Feature - use BATCH file

Hi Denis.

to discuss...



1. is there a bug in the style of the created Undo-batch?

current:
REN "P:\ath to folder\new.ext" "P:\ath to folder\old.ext"

gives an error message as for REN the new name is expected to be without any path
REN "P:\ath to folder\new.ext" "old.ext"

Maybe remove that REN and add a REM line above which says
REM List of "New Name" "Old Name", use this list and a tool of your choice to undo the renaming.
REM see our wiki (url) for some how-to's


- - -

2. please re-consider to add an optional, but then automatically creation of an log file like the Undo-batch.


- - -

3. please consider to adjust the style of the "Export\*.csv" files:

Change comma to tab (comma is a valid char as file name, a Tab not) and add quotes.

current:
P:\ath to folder\new.ext,P:\ath to folder\old.ext
suggestion:
"P:\ath to folder\new.ext"<TAB>"P:\ath to folder\old.ext"

That should be better for the user for post-processing?



 


For more help and how-to's  read our fine Wiki.

Re: Undo Feature - use BATCH file

1. is there a bug in the style of the created Undo-batch?

It's not a bug, but rather a limitation of the default REN command that comes with Windows.

That is why there are two flavours of this export option, i.e. "full paths" vs "only names".

Perhaps this option is quite redundant, and should be dropped in favour of the more standardized exporting as CSV (comma separated) and TXT (tab separated) files?

2. please re-consider to add an optional, but then automatically creation of an log file like the Undo-batch.

The logging feature is still on the list.

3. please consider to adjust the style of the "Export\*.csv" files...

There is already an option to export in CSV (comma separated) and TXT (tab separated) format. You can choose the format by changing the file filter in the file selection dialog.

If CSV format is selected, values with a comma or other conflicting characters will be automatically enquoted/dequoted by the CSV handler.

Note that the CSV handler has been improved in v7.1.0.2 Beta.
