GUI

Hello,

First of all, great program. I've been using BRU for perhaps 12+ years, so I've seen it progress through many iterations. In that time I've tried every bulk renaming utility available and BRU consistently rises to the top (at least for me). I downloaded the latest version today and I'm a little disappointed at the use of real estate in the GUI... so I took a quick minute to draw a mock up for a suggested GUI. I think scrolling through the various renaming options would be much cleaner and a much better use of space. I'm not a coder by any stretch of the imagination so I have no idea if it would be possible (or even functional), but I think it would at least be worth giving it a shot.

Take care!

Derek... nice one! I think you'll find 100% users are looking for the same. As one of the best utilities out there (IMHO), I'm surprised it's taken so long. However, I'm sure we'll be more than pleasantly surprised when we see the update (when? dunno). :wink:

Oh my goodness, please implement hiding/collapsing controls asap! After not using it for a while, I just reinstalled it (remembering how much I loved it before) and was immediately overwhelmed with all the new controls. It's great that there are more capabilities, but the controls take up half the screen.

As a UX designer trying to give constructive criticism, it honestly does not make me feel good to use this right now like it used to. DerekO's suggestion might be ok, but it's nice to see all the controls you've used to manipulate the names all at once. I believe it would be better to give users a way to customize the controls they see - like check boxes in an options menu that toggle the controls displayed (like Adobe does with some of their programs).

Thanks

Hi, we will make the controls collapsible so only the ones actually used will be visible.

I have rolled back to version 2.7.1.2 which has a much better use of screen real estate. It can be found on the web.
