A few things that will make a good thing even better

A few things that will make a good thing even better

In the older version I used before, when I hit the reset butten the selected songs staid selected. I usually rename in phases so I would like to see this back (or an option to toggle this behaviour).

I would like to be able (in a simple way) to move characters X to Y Z positions to the left or to the right (or to position W).
When I have...... 01 - The Dogs - Where's My Bone.mp3
I want to have.... The Dogs - 01 - Where's My Bone.mp3

Macro's or a way to group operations and call them from a menu like
- convert all "_" to " ", make each first character uppercase and remove "www.torrentazos.com"

I might be asking too much here but it doesn't hurt to ask.
Your tool makes me think back to the Patriquin DOS utilities; small but VERY powerful!

Hi ZhuBaJie,

In the older version I used before, when I hit the reset butten the selected songs staid selected. I usually rename in phases so I would like to see this back (or an option to toggle this behaviour).

Hmm...I wasn't aware this had changed. Must have been a side-effect of a different change.

I would like to be able (in a simple way) to move characters X to Y Z positions to the left or to the right (or to position W).
When I have...... 01 - The Dogs - Where's My Bone.mp3
I want to have.... The Dogs - 01 - Where's My Bone.mp3

Why not use Regular Expressions for this? That's definitely the easiest option.

Macro's or a way to group operations and call them from a menu like
- convert all "_" to " ", make each first character uppercase and remove "www.torrentazos.com"

Just create "Favourites" with all your criteria already defined, and just load them when you need them.

Hope this helps.

What I did to switch the names of artist and song titles is to use a regular expression.
First I wanted to swap "song title - artist" to read "artist - song title"
So, I removed the .mp3 file extention, swapped names, reapplied the file extension-

Extension (10) Remove
Rename
RegEx(1)
Match: ^(.*) - (.*)
Replace: \2 - \1
Rename
Extension (10) Extra: mp3
All Done!

Your case would be
Match: ^(.*) - (.*) - (.*)
Replace: \2 - \1 - \3

Hope this helps and hope I'm correct!
