Re: Separator

I'm trying to figure out what you mean by a 'separator'. Where, in what context, is it used? I tried putting a "+" in my file list, but it doesn't appear to be doing anything. Hence, my question: where are the separators?

Re: Browse Folders in panel1 and Files in panel2

Thanks, Dreamer. It's not exactly what I had in mind, but I think it's good enough. Thanks for your reply!

Browse Folders in panel1 and Files in panel2

I'm using FreeCommander XE2017 Build 740 32 bit public. I'm using FC in two-panel mode. In my left panel, I get the (very long) list of Folders. In the right panel, I would like to get the files (i.e. file names) belonging to the folder my selector bar happens to be on, Without (and that's the trick...

Re: Switch strings in filenames with regex?

Hi, I think following regex should do the trick. Search for: ([^.-]+)\s\-\s([^.-]+) 'Replace with' regex stays the same. Regards, Kotty Hi Kotty, Respectfully thanks!!! That indeed did the trick! These filenames: 1 - 2.txt 1, a - 2.txt 1 - 2, b.txt 1, a - 2, b.txt were neatly turned (thanks to your...

Re: Switch strings in filenames with regex?

Hi there, I think following lines should do the trick, however I'm no regex-pert, so keep that in mind and test it out properly before proceeding. Search for: ([\w+\s|\w+]{1,})\s\-\s([\w+\s|\w+]{1,}) Replace with: $2\ \-\ $1 Hope it helps. Regards, Kotty Hi Kothy, Thanks for your code, which appear...

Switch strings in filenames with regex?

Hi all, I have a bunch of files, named like this: My life - Jim Johnson.txt Some long title with many words - Jack Simon Gudmundson.doc Yes - James.xls My question: what regex do I need to put (in FC 2014 build 650) the part behind the " - " in front, and the stuff which originally was before the " ...

Re: Persistent and/or sensible drive names

It's not what I'm after, but maybe there is something in the "autorun.inf" file, which resides in the root of (most? all?) external drives and USB sticks. You could write a (plain text!!) file containing something like this: [autorun] open="" autoplay=true label="This is a USB stick" When you discon...

Persistent and/or sensible drive names

I would like to rename (or at least refer to) my external hard drives and my USB sticks to more meaningful names. When you have just one or two, there’s no big problem, but things are a bit piling up here – 6 external hard drives, some 10 USB sticks… FC uses the Windows drive letters – up to a certa...

Re: Regular pattern in filename: how to implement?

Got it! - Use "Multirename" (duh) - Tick "Regular expression" - in "Search for", put: ([a-z]+) ([a-z]+) - in "Replace with", put: $2, $1 This turns Ernest Hemingway - The Old Man and the Sea.txt into Hemingway, Ernest - The Old Man and the Sea.txt Maybe it needs some finetuning, but for me it works.

Re: Regular pattern in filename: how to implement?

Thanks, Jody, but I think I wasn't sufficiently "general" in my original post. I think your method only works when you know the exact length of the things you want to switch - but I don't know that length. Obviously, "word1" and "word2" are just placeholders. I would like to turn Jack Jones - someth...

Regular pattern in filename: how to implement?

Hi all, A (hopefully) small question: I have loads of filenames which are formed like this: word1 word2 - something_else.txt I would like to change them into: word2, word1 - something_else.txt How (and where) can I do this, i.e. switch word1 and word2, and put a comma in between? Thanks!

Multirename for filenames with trailing space

Maybe this has been asked before.... I'm using FC XE2014 build 650. I'm looking for a way how to Multirename filenames with a trailing space, just before the extension. I don't seem to be able to figure this out. So, files like "Somename .txt" should become "Somename.txt" Could someone point out how...

Re: "Continuous" filename renaming

Timon wrote:Really nice feature! But rather dangerous for inexpert user. Maybe it's a good idea to implement a separate mode for "Continous renaming" (like "Multirename...")
OK, a separate mode could be useful. Or a separate setting, "Allow continuous renaming Y/N" or something like that.

"Continuous" filename renaming

When you're in Detail View (don't know about the other views, I only use Detail), you can "slow click", which brings you in File Rename mode - but only for the file you happen to be on. It would be nice to then be able to use the Arrow Up and Arrow Down keys to bring you to the previous or the next ...
