b2: duplicate rename characters need limit

Post by marsh » Tue Dec 20, 2005 1:22 am

There is a new duplicate dialog in batch rename. Characters should be limited to alphabet and be repeatable (ab, ac ,ad) so that large numbers of duplicates or files are handled properly. Currently, naming errors occur with large numbers of files.

The problem is also discussed in topic below as well as other suggestions:

I believe (cf this message):
- the new "duplicate" button+dialog is a good solution
- the 'always'/'only if needed' radio buttons are necessary
- the interpreter should be able to handle mix of alphabetical ('$' has been suggested) and numerical ('#') characters - in addition to other cosmetic characters (ex: "_" or whatever).

Thus a "-$$_##$" would show from "-AA_01A" to "-ZZ_99Z"
(and would go through: "-AB_99Z" then "-AC_01A"... to show the logic)

Olivier
PS: if this last part is too difficult/long to implement, the current function with choice of numerical/alphabetical for '#' is ok, as long as alphabetical cycle through A-Z alphabet only, with the correct ...AZ then BA, etc... order.
