this renamer is wonderful. however I am having trouble renaming files that start with anywhere from 5 to 10 numbers and I want to keep only digits 6 through 10 and keep the rest of the filenames after the numbers.

To make sure I give you the best advice, could you give me an example of a filename you want to rename and the name you want it to have?

OK, here are some file names:
0000010229L-07D-SMP-3D1
0000010229L-07D-SMP-3D2
0000010229L-07D-SMP-3D3
000000039L-07D-CXX-3D1
000000039L-07D-CXX-3D2
000000039L-07D-CXX-3D3

here are the name i would like to have:
10229L-07D-SMP-3D1
10229L-07D-SMP-3D2
10229L-07D-SMP-3D3
00039L-07D-CXX-3D1
00039L-07D-CXX-3D2
00039L-07D-CXX-3D3

I would like the number to be 5 digits, removing the extra zeros at the left side. the tricky part for me is that not all numbers have the same number of of digits.

regrards,
alex

I think you can use the renumbering method to change the number of zeros to pad the file with. Try to add the Renumber Method and configure it like this:

Number position: 1
Change to: Relative to existing number
Number difference: 0
Zero padding: Manual
Number length: 5

If this does not work, I can try something else.
