Case Rule

CaseRule.png

This rule changes the case of the filename. Options are: capitalize, to lower case, to upper case, invert case, and put only first letter capital (as in a sentence).

There is also an option to force case for specific text-fragments, such as CD, DVD, RF, etc. These fragments would not look natural in any other case (e.g. cd, dvd, rf), so the rule allows you to prevent changing the case of such terms in one stroke.

The parameters are as follows:

Parameter Details
Case change Several options are offered.
  • The case of each option itself illustrates how that option works. For example, Capitalise Every Word.
  • Invert case will change all capital letters in the filename to lowercased ones, and all lowercased letters to capitalized ones.
  • The (none of the above) option is provided to disable the case conversions listed on the left, so you could independently operate the two options listed on the right side.
Skip extension If this check box is selected, the extension will be ignored by the rule.
Force case for fragments This option forces the case of specified fragments (strings) in the file name.
 * The case may be anything (ALLCAPS, Only first letter capitalalized, lowercase, MixedCase, etc.)

Note: This check box is coupled with the box below it. (Enter the fragments in the box and then activate the option by selecting the check box.)

  • Specify text fragments that must have a specific case. Case for these strings will be set as typed in the box regardless from options selected in Case change list.

Here are some typical examples of such strings:

ALLCAPS: CD, DVD, TV, HTML, XML, C++, USA, GIMP,
Only the First letter capitalized: Java, India, English, Sunday, Easter, February
Mixed case: OpenSUSE, OpenOffice, ReNamer 
  • Put a comma between different fragments (in versions prior to v5.50 space was used instead of a comma).
Extension always lower case Forces the extension to lowercase.

Note: This setting overrides any other setting that can alter the extension. For example, consider a case where the ALL UPPER CASE option is selected and the skip extension option is deselected. Logically, the extension should be converted into ALLCAPS. But if the Extension always lower case option is selected, the case of the extension will be converted to lowercase.This setting will override even the fragments case-conversion.
