Presets menu

Note: Presets are explained here

Menu option Keyboard Shortcut What it does...
Load Opens a submenu with a list of all available presets. Click on a preset to load its rules in the Rules pane. If the preset was saved with any filter settings, they will also be set.

Note: Be aware that all current rules will be lost. If you want to add a preset in the end of the current rules stack use Append preset option from Preset Manager.

Save As... CTRL+S Saves the current preset.
Manage CTRL+M Opens the Preset Manager dialog.
Browse... Browse to folder where presets are stored (via Windows Explorer).
Import... Select presets from any folder in your file system, which you want to be copied to ReNamer's Presets folder.
Create links The following window pops up:


Shortcuts (also known as "droplets") will be created for every available preset and placed in the selected folder.

  • If the Load with Preset option is selected, links will only open new ReNamer window with the preset loaded into Rules pane and files that where sent to the link loaded into Files pane. Now you can edit rules, delete or add some more rules, and finally rename the files. If the preset contained any filter settings, they will be applied to the files that where sent to the link.
  • If the Rename with Preset option is selected, the linked preset will be loaded and all files which were sent to the link will be automatically renamed.

For more information, please see Command Line usage.

WARNING: Be careful with the "Rename with Preset" option. It will rename files without asking for your confirmation!

Rescan Scans the preset folder for new presets. Useful if you have manually modified the content of the presets folder as you don't have to restart ReNamer to use them.
