Subject: Re: Question about Flash Renamer

There are a few way to do this. One way would be to simply use the add function and insert the separators where you want them to be. You would have to do this one time per separator. But you can create a "preset" that combines all the add operation into one. (A good thing about this is also that you can later run this preset simply by right clicking on the filenames in Windows Explorer!)

The second way is to use the "find & replace" function like this:

Find: (\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d\d)

Replace: $1-$2-$3 $4;$5;$6-$7

The "Regular expressions" checkbox must be checked for this to work.

Also please note that colons (:) are not allowed in filenames, so you will have to use some other character (in the above example I used a semicolon).

Good luck!
