Ahh, typers vs clickers holywar :roll: :)

I am on clickers' side and already use Double Commander but it can rename files only in one folder at a time (not recursively in nested folders). Or maybe I missed something in its UI?

I guess, that it is supposed to work with search results. Maybe if you search directory for filenames and then select rename tool, it will go for files in several directories. Though I am not going to install it to check.

Double Commander's batch editing works from search results (as you described), but multi-rename is separate tool opened for currently highlighted files/folders and I could not find a way to run this multi-rename tool recursively.

Anyway, I am patient enough to do it by hand so it is not a show-stopper )

It should be doable in Double Commander. First you do recursive search, then send all found files to panel, and then they should work like if they all were in single directory.

If you can't do that, try updating Double Commander to latest version.

this is the only step which is unclear to me. what particular panel do you mean? could you please post a screenshot with "send to panel" button/menuitem/etc highlighted or otherwise marked?

Code: Select all

Are there any strong reasons to have files named like that?
another reason I forgot about: files like ...-1, ...-0 etc reference respective ...-(media) files which should be imported before they can be referenced. "(" helps to make them import first because numbers follow "(" in alphabetical (ANSI?) order. now I have to either find other character that is treated as "before numbers in alphabetical order" or otherwise make ...-(media) files import before respective numbered files
