From a Mac OS X 10.9.4 user thank you very much!

What a very useful workflow... that finally works for me.

Previous versions were not very stable -> makes me even happier to be able to use this one  :)

 

Presets and preview -> Awesome !

Hi,

 

I installed the 4.0 beta 1 for Alfred 3 and when I invoke both by keyword and file action, I get "Processing…Please Wait" for a few seconds and then reverts to default search options.

Can you please give me more details?

 

How many files did you select in Finder?

 

What kind of files did you select in Finder?

 

Thank you.

I apologize. I was working on giving you more details and noticed something else funky with Alfred (selecting a folder in the Alfred window wouldn't open it - nothing happened) so I restarted my machine and now both issues are resolved. The workflow is working great! Thanks.

I’m glad to hear it is working.

Rename looks incredibly awesome. I can appreciate all you put into it, and am grateful it's available for free.

 

I am learning regular expressions right now, but am admittedly not there yet, and I'm having an even harder time integrating it into a working command line for Rename. I was wondering if you would mind offering a quick bit of help here...

 

I have 400 image files in a folder that need to be renamed in bulk. They all share the same format:

 

Yada yada yada - IMG_1234.CR2

 

Yada yada yada could be any string of any length.

Space before and after the hyphens are consistent across all files

- IMG_ appears in every single file in that position

1234 could be any 4 digits including zeros, but it is always exactly 4 in length

There is never anything after the 1234 digits except a period and the extension

 

I want to rename the files to:

 

Mendenhall Glacier - EXIF capture date - 1234.cr2

 

The Mendenhall Glacier string would be the same for all files.

The EXIF date I believe I need to use $cmm, but I'm not sure how to work that into the regex

The 1234 should be whatever the original 4 numbers are

The capitalization of the extension I intentionally want to now make lowercase

 

 

What would my full Rename command line look like to accomplish this? GREATLY appreciate your help!

First, thanks for such an awesome workflow. I have absolutely loved this.

 

About a month or so ago, it really slowed down for me. A selection of only 9 or 10 Finder items usually takes about 90+ seconds to preview before the "Apply Now" menu item appears, then it takes another 90+ seconds to actually rename the items. Currently using the most recent Alfred version and Rename 4.0 beta 1 on El Cap (10.11.6) I'm not sure if I've changed some weird setting somewhere? I have an iMac and a MacPro, and the workflow is about the same on each.

 

Any thoughts? Thanks again.

Absolutely love this workflow! Any chance it will be updated for Alfred 4? (It seems all of the scpt files reference Alfred 3 specifically, which it tries to launch when called from Alfred 4.)

Thanks!

I’ll update the workflow as soon as possible. Thanks.
