Subject: Re: FlashRenamer - Format - Free Format - suggestion ?

Date: Sun, 10 Jan 2010 20:31:00 +0100

Hi,

This is not possible at the moment. I have actually thought about adding some kind of support for subfolders in the "parts", but other things are more important.

It is however possible if you are a bit clever:

Use (or ) to get the name of the subfolder into your filenames, and then use parts (or other functions) to strip away the bits you do not want:

\Subfolder\Pictures - Misc Series #123\Flowers
"Flowers"

Free format: ---

Result: "Flowers---Pictures - Misc Series #123"

The Replace: "---*#" with nothing.

Done!

:-)
