Hi,

I sounds like you are looking for "parts":



Parts allows you to tell Flash Renamer how your filenames are structured. This is done by separating the different parts with characters that are common to your filenames. In the image above you can see that the parts have been defined as <%1>-<%2>. There is also a preview that shows you what your parts will translate to when used on a filename.

When defining the parts you should look for sections of your filenames that are common to all the filenames that you want to rename. The above example would for example work on all filenames that have a - in the middle.

When you have defined your parts you can use them as tags in functions. For example you can use them to rearrange filenames. Here is an example:

* Original filename: 01. Metallica (S&M) Nothing Else Matters
* Setup parts: <%1>. <%2> (<%3>) <%4>
* Rename with the following format: <%2> - <%1> - <%4>
* Filename after renaming: Metallica - 01 - Nothing Else Matters

Tip: Click on the magic wand button to automatically detect the parts of the filename that is selected in the preview box!

My question is this…is there any way to set up an artist naming function where files can be changed from last name, first name order to First Name Last Name order? Also, my karaoke rar files are named as such…- - - <Artist>. Is there any way to add these to be recognized by your program? <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> I really love your program and use nearly daily since I am a DJ and KJ and I maintain well over 200,000 songs in my library, so any facilitation of this process would be well appreciated. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Thanks for your efforts. <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Bryan L. <br>> <br>><br> </div> <p><br> ◄ <a href="index.php">Back to Knowledge Base</a> </p> </div> </div> <!-- End Page Text ---------------------------------------------------------> </FONT> </TD> <TD><IMG SRC="../../images/spacer.gif" WIDTH=10 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#747474"><IMG SRC="../../images/spacer.gif" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=300 BORDER=0><BR></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#cbcbcb" VALIGN="top"> <!--<TABLE WIDTH=119 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=4 CELLSPACING=0>--> <!--<TABLE WIDTH=126 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=4 CELLSPACING=0>--> <TABLE WIDTH=136 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=4 CELLSPACING=0> <TR> <TD>  · <A HREF="../../index.php" class="menulink_big">Software</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../downloads.php" class="menulink_big">Download</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../register.php" class="menulink_big">Order</A><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR> <!-- <a class=menubold href="../../profile.php">RL Vision</a><BR>-->  <span class=menubold>RL Vision</span><BR>  · <A HREF="../../profile.php" class="menulink">About</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../contact.php" class="menulink">Contact</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../news.php" class="menulink">News</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../blog/" class="menulink">Blog</A><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR>  <span class=menubold>Shareware</span><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../flashren/about.php">Flash Renamer</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../pdfwiz/about.php">PDF Img Extract</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../exif/about.php">Exif Tag Remover</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../dupli/about.php">Dupli Find</a><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR>  <span class=menubold>Freeware</span><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../genius/about.php">Replace Genius</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../officewiz/about.php">Office Img Extract</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../notepad2/about.php">Notepad2 BE</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../photosift/about.php">PhotoSift</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../spots/about.php">Hot Spot Studio</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../snap2html/about.php">Snap2HTML</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../snap2img/about.php">Snap2IMG</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../bubblemath/about.php">Bubble Math</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../dinnerwiz/about.php">DinnerWiz</a><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/nsf_tool.php" class="menulink">NSF Tool</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/beep.php" class="menulink">Beep.Exe</A><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR>  <span class=menubold>Misc.</span><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/source_code.php" class="menulink">Get Source Code</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/changelogs.php" class="menulink">Changelogs</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/titleq.php" class="menulink">TitleQ</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../artgem_about.php" class="menulink">ArtGem</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../tutorials/index.php" class="menulink">Graphics Tutorials</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/windows_7_font_bug.php" class="menulink">Win7 Font Bug</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/kb/index.php" class="menulink">KB</A><BR> <br><br> <center> <font class="mini">Like my Freeware?</font> <A HREF="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=B4LPB59LHDTNW" class="menulink" target="_blank"> <img src="../../images/paypal_donate.gif"> </A> </center> <br> <center> <font class="mini">I'm on GitHub too!</font> <A HREF="https://github.com/rlv-dan" class="menulink" target="_blank"> <img src="../../images/github_button.png"> </A> </center> <BR> </FONT> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD COLSPAN=3><IMG SRC="../../images/main_bottom.gif" WIDTH=586 HEIGHT=25 BORDER=0><BR></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#747474"><IMG SRC="../../images/spacer.gif" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#cbcbcb"><IMG SRC="../../images/menu_bottom.gif" WIDTH=136 HEIGHT=25 BORDER=0><BR></TD> </TR> </TABLE> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD VALIGN="middle"><font color=white size=-2> © 1998-2017 RL Vision</FONT> </TD> </TD><TD> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </CENTER> <!-- Piwik --> <script type="text/javascript"> var _paq = _paq || [];
