Batch Renamer: mixed case doesn't work correctly

Post by Guest »

I noticed when you use the batch renamer, the mixed case does not seemed to work correctly. For example, if I rename "I'll be there.txt". It would change to "I'Ll be there...".

Would you mind having a look?

It seems OK to me. Please look at attached screenshot.

I believe the renamed file should be "I'll Be There.txt" and NOT "I'Ll Be There.txt".

Am I missing anything?
Cheers,

Exactly, it's wrong in English, but the question is, what characters Salamander use as word separators (I would expect whitespace, but not ' like in this case :?:)

This confused me...

Now the Batch Renamer considers all non-alpha characters to be separators. Not a bug, just feature.

Hi Jan/Mem,

I agree on the technicality and thanks for the response, but it still does not make sense from practical stand point.

Normally, when one would capitalize "i"ll", one would probably expect to see "I'll". I actually had to use a different program to achieve my purpose but I really like your product. It is addicting.

Any chance you guys can fix this to meet a common user's expectation? Or add an option to add multiple separaters (would be ideal).

Thanks,
Madison.

there's related post to this in the czech forum over here.

basically, it would be nice to have configurable separators, which would be used in these functions / dialogs:
  • change case command (mixed case, partially mixed case)
  • renamer plugin (mixed case)
  • quick rename dialog (cursor stop locations on ctrl+left/right etc.)
extra bonus feature would be list of terms (in this context: term = substring consisting of non-separator characters, separated by either separators or beginning / end of line) with explicit capitalization.

example list: XviD,DJ,MIX,VA,DJs,I,II,III,IV ...
