Great tool! Glad to see it is still being maintained.

Great free program, gets the job done. Doesn't take much to figure out, so I don't know what was going on with the reviewer who said they spent 4 hours with it. You don't need scripts to use this program - just choose a directory, choose some options, then rename! This program has saved me a LOT of time. I prefer to use this program instead of Rename Master, because the publisher of that program has an inappropriate name. Flexible Renamer works fine, so if you want to do some renaming or if you want to add or remove some letters or numbers from some file names and lots more, this program is a great free choice!

I HATE IT
has to build tons of parmeters not intuitive . never managed it to do the job. spent 4 hours trying to figure it out read in forum and in help.

no idea to have to learn making scripts, just to rename a bunch of files from different nameand number.swf to font01.svf font02.swf etc shoud be easiest in the world.

ability to save scripts great but no scripts with program

This is a pretty decent effort, and it has promise, but I think it has quite a ways to go before it matches Rename Master, which I think is still the best freeware application in this class. Betanews has it listed here for comparison:

This is worth keeping an eye on though, and I expect that with some interface tweaking to make it more efficient, and a bit of simplification overall, this program will rate at least a 4 out of 5.

Hopefully they'll keep working on it and frequent updates will keep coming.

If I compare with, say, Rename Master, this one will not allow you to rename some unicode file names. Rename Master will not show the unicode names properly, BUT will allow you to rename them nonetheless if you replace the unknown characters with as many "?" as rendered in European ISO format.
I'm not going to rate it 1 since it does rename ISO-8859 file names ok, but for me it just wasn't helpful, hence a 3.

By far the best renamer of all because of its interface, design, and ease of use. Everyone else tries to make renaming difficult and circuitous; Flexible Renamer just does it fast.

You can also (and more easily) prefix or suffix a string using the "Insert AnyString..." function. Couldn't be much easier than that. It even lets you offset the position of the new string from the start or end of the original file name. Great stuff.

ohmymy, it is your ignorance that is weak. You can do both with regular expressions.

.* -> \0suffix or prefix\0

The best freeware avaible! Nice and modern interface! Just one problem: when not in "Advanced rename" it is not possible to make more than one change at time, like in PowerRenamer (shareware).
