Suggestions: path length, date and time injection

Dear developers,
I have two suggestions:

1. Would it be possible to add the possibility not only to show the length of the filename but also the complete path length. Furthermore it would be helpful to indicate that the "length of filename" is "length of filename (incl. extension)".

2. At the moment I'm using ReNamer together with an other renaming utility because handling/adding of dates and times to the filename (creation date, modification date and time etc.) is much more easy with the other tool.
Would it be possible to implement the possibility to add "creation date", "creation time", "modification date" etc. to the filename in the form of:

%yyyy-m%  => year of modification (4 numbers)
%yy-m% => year of modification (2 numbers)
%mm-m%
%dd-m%
%hh-m%
%ii-m%
%ss-m%

Same for "creation"

Example:
"Test filename.pdf"
insert after filename:
%yyyy-c%-%mm-c%-%dd-c% time %hh-c%:%ii-c%:%ss-c%  => Test filename 2020-08-12 time 10:44:23.pdf

Best regards

Torsten

Hi Torsten

1. "Filename" is always incl. extension, otherwise it would be "Basename" tongue
But just "imho" of course wink


2. Does that helps:

" add "creation date", "creation time", "modification date" etc."

https://www.den4b.com/wiki/ReNamer:Rules:Insert
https://www.den4b.com/wiki/ReNamer:Meta_Tags
e.g.: File information (size, dates, name, path, extension, and more).

Adjust time format beforehand:

https://www.den4b.com/wiki/ReNamer:Date_and_Time_format
Or even afterwards:

Re: Suggestions: path length, date and time injection

There will be two new file table columns in the next development version:

  • Path Length

  • New Path Length

Regarding the insertion of date/time, you should check out the Meta Tags:
https://www.den4b.com/wiki/ReNamer:Meta_Tags

The default date/time format can be adjusted in the application settings.

The exact format you are looking for is:

yyyy-mm-dd "time" hh:nn:ss

P.S. You probably want to replace ":" with a different symbol, because it is an invalid filename character.

Re: Suggestions: path length, date and time injection

Thank you very much for your detailed explanations.
I've never heard or read "basename" and I had to count the characters to figure out that "path length" is incl. file extension but now I know it :-)
Although I think that other users could have the same "problem/question".

I've seen the ReformateDate rules/possibilities but for me it seems pretty complicated to generate filenames like

"FileName01-FileWasModifiedAt Wendsday 12_08_2020-ModificationTime 22 Hours 58 Minutes 10 Seconds.pdf"

Yes, I know the "basename" ;-) is pretty long; it's only an "example".
