Subject: Re: Can I change the position of what I rename?

Date: Sat, 24 Dec 2005 20:20:44 +0100

This is my suggestion: Set the pattern mask (top right corner) to *DS9*,
then add DS9 to the beginning of each file, and finally use the find/replace
function to remove the second DS9 from the filenames. You can do this by
setting the start attribute to eg 3 in thefind/replace function!

As for the format function, look at the "parts". These will allow you to
rearrange portions of the filename.
