Subject: Re: Flash Renamer 6.0 beta - a difficult one...

Date: Sun, 17 Feb 2008 14:48:37 +0100

Another solution:

Use the replace function + regular expressions. This is tricky but it will work.

* Find: (\d\d)-(\d\d)-(\d\d\d\d) (\d\d)-(\d\d)-(\d\d)
* Replace: $1$2$3 $4$5$6
* Regular Expression: Checked


Quick noes: \d searches for a number. Parethesis () "capture" the string inside. $1 translates into the first capture, $2 the second, and so on.
