Many Replace/With entries

Postby Thor » Tue Sep 27, 2016 7:52 pm

I often do some renaming that involves changing many bits of the file name using the replace function.

As I can only do one replace at a time I have to do many repetitive steps.

It would have been very useful if there was the possibility to add many "Replace [ ] with [ ]" entries. This could maybe be a little popup with a list with 5-10 such replace pairs (or even a dynamic list). If filled, these entries should be persistent till next time I open the Utility. Of course, the replace/with function has to do the replacing in the given order.

Or maybe the option to add a comma separated text string with Replace/With pairs in speech marks, such as ["_", "-", " ", "-" ] (this sample would replace all underscores with hyphen, and all spaces with hyphen).

Just my two-cents to make an already brilliant tool even better...

That's what the Character Translation feature is for, it's extremely useful and flexible once you get the gist of it.
