ReNamer:Using the Rules

From den4b Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You can load a stack of rules in ReNamer. These rules act on the loaded files in the "top-to-bottom" order. This allows you to achieve very complex renaming algorithms.

  • A rule modifies the name and then passes it to the next rule, which acts on the modified name (not the original name).
  • Any rule can be used multiple times, each time with different settings.

All you have to do is to visualize how each rule in the stack affects the file name when the file name "passes through" the stack.

The first subtopic provides an overview of Rules.

The subsequent subtopics show the specifics of each rule:

  • How each option works, and how to set it.
  • Examples (typical uses).

Tip: If you are going to use the same set of rules frequently, it is best to save it as a Preset. This allows you to re-load the entire set with a keyboard shortcut (such as CTRL+1). A huge timesaver!
