Product Synopsis:

Bitspring Renamer (BR) is a utility designed solely for batch renaming of files. BR does not rename directories and also does not support renaming according to file-specific information (i.e. MP3 tags). These features were intentionally left out as there are products already available for these purposes. While many of BR's features can be found in other renaming utilities, the package in general has some advanced features that, when coupled with the "common" features, allow for extremely flexible, powerful and unique renaming options unlikely to be found in another product.

Status (including private betas):


WARNING! Be very careful with the UNDO command.  While all current testing seems to show that it is working
correctly after making a code change that I believe fixed the problem, there was a problem where after a
combination of multiple renames and undos the files were misnamed.  Namely, they were named in reverse order.
I believe this has been fixed but until further notice please verify your renames if you have used the UNDO

(TOFIX)	When a rename process is cancelled, those files that were already renamed need to be undone, somehow
(TOFIX)	UI glitches when a renamed process is cancelled

(TODO)	If more than X files are dropped onto renamer, auto-switch into non-enhanced display mode
(TODO)	Options for handling directories that are "dragged and dropped"
(TODO)	Capitalization: words typed into the second edit box should always be capitalized as typed
(TODO)	Change to virtual list control.
(TODO)	Creation of renaming log [Requires file identification from start to log creation]
(TODO)	Add  wildcard to replace representing full file title
