- Renaming a file directly in the list:
To do it, select a filename and press F2 or double click the filename (there should be a short pause between the clicks). Press Enter after editing is over. Invalid characters (/\: *? " < > |) in the new filename will be replaced with the underscore character.
- Renaming a file using the "Quick Rename Files" feature:
For this feature to work, you should first specify a mask for renaming files in the options:
In the top field of the page you should specify a mask consisting of text and special character combinations that are later replaced with their current values. The following values are supported:
Below the input field you can see the result generated out of the mask. For example, "%8 %3" is used as the default mask. "<File Number> <Title>" will be the result generated out of the mask, i.e. File Number will replace "%8" and Title will replace "%3".
After specifying the mask for renaming files, you can use the Quick Rename Files feature. The feature works like this: all files in the current folder are selected (if the folder was closed, it gets opened) and renamed according to the mask. Invalid characters (/\: *? " < > |) in the new filename will be replaced with the underscore character. In case there are no audio files in the folder, the optional warning message will be displayed.
- Renaming files using the "Quick Rename Selected Files" feature.
It is similar to the Quick Rename Files feature except that not all files in a folder are automatically selected, but only the files you select are renamed.
- Renaming files using the "Rename Files..." dialog:
For this feature to work, you should first select the necessary files. If no files are selected, the program will select all files in the current folder (if the folder was closed, it gets opened). At the top of the dialog there is a field for entering the mask. The mask is specified in the same way as the mask in the Quick Rename Files feature.
The dialog allows you to see the feature work result. For that, there is the list of the selected files with their new names created according to the current mask at the bottom of the dialog. After the operation is over, the last mask is saved.
