1294: Multi-Rename Broken With Regex Enabled

Post by therube »

1294: Multi-Rename (Shift+F2) "properties" are Broken when Regex is Enabled.

The wanted "property", say, #titlecase<>: is entered literally - in the 'New names:', instead of effecting a change.


(Works with 'Regular expressions' disabled.)


OK, that's weird.
There has to be something else in play... cause I'm not getting it to break, here?
But at home it is... so not sure just what the trigger is?

Oops, that's just a typo (above).

I wouldn't have manually typed anything in, simply selected from the list.

I haven't had any luck producing the issue.

The next time this occurs could you please send a screenshot?


Maybe there's a strange parsing issue..
A \ in front of #titlecase: would prevent #titlecase: from expanding.

I was hoping to do just that, but once I re-enabled regex, I then couldn't duplicate it.
But, I'll keep my eyes open...

Ran into this issue...

When all the filenames are the same, the preprocessor does not expand any text.

I am working on a fix.

Everything 1.5.0.1299a fixes an issue with preprocessor not expanding in the multi-file renamer when no variables are used.
