When renaming a group of files - add option to replace 1st number, not last

Postby Shokakusan » Sat Sep 16, 2017 4:10 pm

my photos are organized by name, 5-digit set/photo #, descriptive title, and date (mm/dd/yyyy). I frequently need to renumber a set of photos to insert or remove a photo from a set. When I do a batch rename, I must always edit the name template to replace the #### with the actual year and replace the 5-digit set/photo # with #####. Can you add an option to generate the Name template replacing the 1st number (the set/photo #) instead of the last number (the year) with #'s

When I forget to edit the template, I wind up with:
MyName-10001_Description_04-20-2017
MyName-10001_Description_04-20-2018
MyName-10001_Description_04-20-2019
MyName-10001_Description_04-20-2020

Instead of:
MyName-10001_Description_04-20-2017
MyName-10002_Description_04-20-2017
MyName-10003_Description_04-20-2017
MyName-10004_Description_04-20-2017
