Whenever I obtain a bunch of attachments, the very first thing I do is to rename them. To make this much less time-consuming, I take advantage of a batch renaming software similar to Advanced Renamer.
Recently, I got here throughout a related program referred to as Rename Us. Let’s see what it has to supply.
Rename Us’ interface is divided into a number of tabs. There are three panes within the choose information tab. The prime left pane is the tree pane which you need to use to pick out the folder the place your information are saved. When you will have made your choice, the pane on the precise will show the information within the chosen listing. You might allow the choice to incorporate subdirectories and make read-only information show too.
Note: The default view mode of Rename Us is fairly small, you possibly can solely see three information in the precise pane. Mouse over the dots under the pane and the cursor adjustments to a drag pointer, use it to resize the view to show extra information. Select a number of information utilizing the Shift key, and click on on the icon with a single arrow so as to add them to the rename queue. Or, click on the double-arrow icon so as to add all information and folders to the queue.
The information that you simply add are displayed within the giant pane on the backside. The toolbar above the queue can be utilized reorder the objects which will be helpful for those who’re utilizing an incremental renaming technique, or you possibly can randomize the checklist. The copy button copies all file names, with their full path, modified date, file sort, dimension and creation date. The export choices in Rename Us help you immediately save the info in a TXT, CSV, XLSX, HTML, XML, or SYLK file. You might use the context menu for copying the file names or to export the info.
The subsequent step is to configure the renaming guidelines, head to the second tab, “Specify renaming actions”. The program will be set to repeat the information or transfer and rename them. Click the drop down menu beneath the “Rules for file names”. It has choices to make use of enumeration, change textual content to higher case or decrease case, exchange a substring with new textual content, add prefix or suffix, minimize a prefix or suffix, customized expression, change Cyrillic symbols to translit.
The enumeration possibility permits you to exchange the file title with a schema, or use it as prefix or suffix, and optionally choose schema separators. A number of of those renaming guidelines have a built-in preview possibility that shows what the brand new file title would appear to be. When you add a rule for file title, it is displayed within the prime pane together with the parameters you chose and a preview of the file title. The guidelines for file extensions are precisely the identical, however you possibly can outline them individually within the backside pane. You can save your session as a Rename US challenge, and are available again to it anytime.
Go to the subsequent tab, “Choose execution parameters” to pick out the placement the place the information ought to be saved (supply or a totally different folder), determine whether or not Rename Us ought to overwrite the information? Save the method report in a log file in TEXT or HTML format.
Worried that one thing would possibly change into tousled within the renaming course of? That’s what the preview tab is for. Click the execute button to simulate the renaming course of and test the outcomes. If you discover one thing that wants fixing, head again to the foundations and execution parameters and alter them.
Ready to rename the information? Switch to the Execute tab, and click on on the “Execute” button. Your information will probably be renamed in seconds. The Undo button can be utilized to revert to the earlier filenames, however this solely works for the present session.
The program is not transportable. A premium model is obtainable, the one variations between it and the free model are that Rename Us Pro can rename information from the command line, create folders robotically when renaming information, and write an prolonged log file with a customized script.
Rename Us is pretty good for batch renaming information, the interface is fairly simple to get used to. But having gotten accustomed to Advanced Renamer, I missed the choice to revive names of the earlier batch and a few superior choices.
