Change request: Batch rename - use part of original filename

Postby violine » Wed Nov 19, 2014 8:01 pm

The subject says it all. As already discussed in this forum it would be a very helpful option if someone could use parts of the original filename when batch renaming files.
The current version 2.25 only supports the whole original filename with the <Filename> or <Filename With Ext> tag.
My suggestion is to extend it with []
Examples:
Original filename is IMGP1234.jpg
    <Filename[1]> is I
    <Filename[2]> is M
    ...
    <Filename[1-4]> is IMGP
    <Filename[5-8]> is 1234
    <Filename[1-23]> is IMGP1234

    <Filename With Ext[4-12]> is P1234.jpg

Additional the same operations on the extension could be useful:
    <Ext> is .jpg
    <Ext[2-4]> is jpg
Once this is implemented it could also be used for converting to UPPER- or lower case
    <FILENAME> converts to uppercase and
    <filename> converts to lowercase
    <Filename> doesn´t change the case
Same with other 2 options.

Please tell me what you think about this.
It would be great if XnView could to this job. So there would no more need to change to another program just for renaming files.

I'm still missing this feature in the current version XnView Standard 2.32.
If you also would like this to be implemented, please let the author know!
