This rule works on a set of files, and inserts a incremental numeric series or a random sequences of digits in the names of those file names.
When the incremental option is chosen, the files listed in the pane are numbered in ascending order. Thus, the position of the file in the list becomes important. Check the order of the files in the list before applying this rule.
- You have a bunch of log files, and you want to make them look like â€œlog0001â€, â€œlog0002â€, â€œlog0003â€, etc.
- You want to force specific sorting for files: â€œ01 - Song XYZâ€, â€œ02 - Song ABCâ€, â€œ03 - Song YYYâ€, etc.
The parameters are as follows:
|Incremental||Inserts serialized numbers in the names of the files placed in the Files pane of ReNamer.
|Random||Inserts a random number in the file name.
|Pad with zeros to reach length||ReNamer will pad the remaining places with leading zeros. For example, a random number 457 becomes 000457 if the padded to 6 digits, and 0457 if padded to 4 digits.|
|Insert where||Specify where to insert the number.
Note that if the â€œpad with zerosâ€ option (above) is selected, the padded number is inserted.
