I just want to number files (Noob question!)

Postby sali225 » Thu Nov 16, 2017 2:19 pm

Hi,
I have three files PICT0003, PICT0004, PICT0005 and i have the following options set Name (2) Remove, Append Folder Name (9) Prefix lvl 1 and Numbering (10) set to mode suffix at 1, start 1, incre. 1, pad 2, sep - break 5 base 10.

Yet every single file is coming out with the suffix number being -01 and are not going up in number, despite there being 3 files. what can i possibly be doing wrong? when i hit rename, it only does the first file, and not the other other two... I want the new file name to be the Parent folder name-01, 02, 03 etc etc . Do i have to rename every file individually, moving up the start number? which is how im working around this currently, just asking whether I am completely missing something

thanks
selina

Sounds like you have all correct - except you need to select all the files (all the files you want to rename, so 3) in the file-list window rather then only 1.

(The -1 -2 -3 assumes the three files are in the same directory, so have the same parent. If they were in separate directories, each would have a unique name but would have -1 appended.)

Nope, that's wrong. They will be named -1 -2 -3.
