Rename by list
« on: June 08, 2014, 13:55:42 »
Wondering if the multi-rename module can be made to import a .txt of names to use as a rename list?

The [N] field being replaced from the txt by strings separated by <CR>.
i.e. Each name would correspond to a specific line - file #7 rename from line #7 etc

Maybe this could be done with a script?  No idea where I'd start on that tho!

Might be possible.. however there might also be a lot of potential issues with it.
The user would to be really sure that the files listed is in the correct order so the names are set correctly.
But if you just want to do full rename of them from original to the name in file there might be better solutions for that.
