UserInput Rule

UserInputRule.png

This rule replaces the original filenames with the names taken from the list. (The nth line in the list serves as the new name for the nth file in the Files pane.)

Naturally, the list should contain names for all the files loaded in the Files pane.

  • If the list is shorter, then some of the files will not be renamed.
  • If the list is longer, some of the names will remain unused (but all files in the Files pane will be renamed).

There are three ways to create the list:

  1. Click in the pane, and manually type the list (one name per line).
  2. Copy the list from any application to your clipboard. Switch to ReNamer. Click in the UserInput pane and press CTRL+V, right-click and select Paste or choose the Load from clipboard from UserInputOptionsButton.png menu).
  3. Load a list from the text file (available from UserInputOptionsButton.png menu).


The optional parameters are as follows:

Insert in front of the current name Inserts the name before the file name.
Insert after the current name Inserts the name after the current name. The actual position depends on the Skip extention option.
Replace the current name Replaces the existing filename with the new name.

The effect on extension depends on the Skip extension option:

Skip extention
  • If the option is selected, the extention is ignored and user input strings will affect only the base name of files.
  • If the option is deselected, user input strings will replace entire filename, including the extension, or will be added after the old extention (if the Insert after the current name option is selected).
