Subject: Re: Flash Renamer 6.0 beta! - Help-file + RMB

Date: Thu, 20 Dec 2007 21:30:58 +0100

The ini-file does not work like the other settings. If I add things to the file, the new stuff would not appear on for example your computer if I didn't overwrite it. But I do agree with you, and I will see if I can make it into a normal settings file as soon as possible!
