A tool for easy bulk files renaming, with an ability to pattern match files.
Let's say you want to rename all files with prefix "Copy " after drag-and-droping images from Pictures to the Desktop (i.e. remove "Copy " prefixes from all filenames).
Folder selection and other issues fixed.

there is the simple renamer in finder, (OSX Yosemite) you right click and select "rename __ files" This app pretty much does the same, but this app has more limitations.
However in finder you have the option to do sequential numbers, you can append numbers for your sequence, and change the order of where certain text are placed.
The app doesnt let you do it. you can only find a “text” and replace said “text” with what you choose.
I limit my review based on that.
Keep coding. Im sure with time the app can include other features. Great job for a free app, thats for sure. :)
Works as intended. Perfectly
Mind you that the reviewer who said the program messed up his Finder probably was using “.” characters in his pattern matching which would if not used only at the end of the search and replace terms likely screw many files over hundreds of files by changing what the Finder thinks the file type is. DON’T USE period in your matches unless you are adding to the end of a file name some kind of designator for yourself so you know where the files originated or some other scheme in which case the search term would be “." and the replace term would be “NewFileNameEnding.” Careful to leave the . on the end and NOWHERE else….
Worked like a charm for me both renaming (A* - > B*), eliminating part of (A* -> *), and adding to the end of file names (*. -> *B) for hundreds of files. No messed Finder!
Saved me an enormous amount of time…
I manage inventory in QuickBooks using *.iif import files. I always perform all of my inventory updates in a TEST version of the company file, once I am certain the import generates the desired results I then perform the import in the LIVE version. I like to name all of my import files according to the TEST or the LIVE environment. Once I have a functioning import file I copy it from the TEST environment and rename it using the LIVE environment convention. this little tool vastly simplifys this entire process.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
