Option to change Name Template when renaming files

Post by Shokakusan » Sat Feb 16, 2019 2:43 am

Currently, when renaming multiple files, XnView generates a name template with the ###... symbols inserted for the last set of digits in the files. As an example, if I select and rename multiple files of the form:
PersonsName-010-Location-02-15-2019
PersonsName-011-Location-02-15-2019
PersonsName-012-Location-02-15-2019
PersonsName-013-Location-02-15-2019

XnView generates a name template of the form:
PersonsName-010-Location-02-15-####.

I want an option when renaming multiple file to generate a name template with the ###... symbols inserted for the first (not the last) set of digits. So when I select and rename the above files, XnView should generate a name template of the form:
PersonsName-###-Location-02-15-2019.

I've used XnView for about 6 years and asked for this option many times during that time, but there has been no response.
