hi,

i try to remove end-positioned digits, which are in brackets like:

my folder name (123)
other folder (10)

digit-lenght 1-3;

i tried this remove pattern method:
$\(d{1-3}\)
case-sensitive: no
use reg ex: yes
apply to: name and ext

but no success. also the more general $\(d+\) brings no effect.
where i'm wrong? can anyone help?

thx
a very pleased user

Please give me an example of the filename you want to rename and an example of the result you want after the rename batch.

ok, here an example:

original directory name with ending digits in brackets: "any directory name (456)"
should be renamed to: "any directory name"

in general, ending (digits) of the length of 1 to 3 should be removed.

Your regex pattern should be \(\d+\)$

yeah, it works. and for a more specific determination the digit-length-limitation with

\(\d{1,3}\)$

works also well.
but an other "error" occurs: i have in the workload list a lot of dir entries, but only a few matches with this pattern and get an new name. so the renamer works fine until i "start batch". the renamer does the renaming well, but the resulf info window prompts with an error count of exact the number of entries which should NOT be renamed. it's a little confusing because the confidence in the renaming will be decreased.

ciao

Reply to #4: Hello. I have the similar problem, and tried your suggestions, but this is not working.
The difference is that in the end of file name I have dot, like this:

Garden of my dreams.123456
or
Garden of my dreams .123456

Thanks' in advance.
*****************************
Sorry, I founded the pattern, that is in replace mode:

Text to be replaced: (.+)(.{7})
Replace with: /1
Use regular expressions: Check

It's work in this case.
