Renaming files

a) Not a big thing but since the renaming options are so elegant it would be nice to be able to rename a single file, which is currently not possible.


b) Another renaming option that would be useful is string substitution, i.e. search for a set of characters and replace them with another set of characters.


In Adobe Bridge I have the freedom to choose how to name my files. All I need to do is choose from a drop-down list and compose as I please.

In this list there are: 

  1. Text, 
  2. New Extension, 
  3. Current Filename, 
  4. Preserved Filename, 
  5. Sequence Number, 
  6. Sequence Letter, 
  7. Date Time, 
  8. Metadata, 
  9. Folder Name, 
  10. String Substitution

So I could easily compose and add as many boxes as I wanted.

 

In KYNO, I find it hard to find myself. For example :

There is only one DATE preset « Original Name + Date Modified »

${basename}${separator}${lastModifiedDate}.${extension}

But not DATE CREATED

 

I have always renamed my files as follows: 000025_SITCOM_KEZEMBIA_VID_12042020

 

In Adobe bridge, I made it like this :

Sequence Number _Text_Text_Text_Date Created

 

In KYNO it will be

index_Custom Name1_Custom Name2_Custom Name3_ Date Created =

${index}${separator}${customName1}${separator}${customName2}${separator}${customName3}${separator}${DateCreated}.${extension}

 

I don’t Know How to add multiple *CUSTOM NAME, and *DATE CREATED

Would you please share with us the full list of presets for *Text, New Extension, Current Filename, Preserved Filename, Sequence Number, Sequence Letter, Date Time, Metadata, Folder Name, String Substitution

Yes, I have found it now, thanks. 


Is the "More options" link, the mouse points to, displayed, when you open the dialog?

Perfect, thanks :)

Thanks for the reply. I'm not seeing a grey "more options" button - I'm sure it's there somewhere but I can't see where to look.


a) we actually already have a ticket for that and will look at it again now, thanks


b) it is already there. just klick on the grey "more options"-button


Keep it coming :-).
