Hi, kim, can you support rename in place? (maybe via buffer or something

For example, I have 3 files (1.txt/2.txt/3.txt), rename rules below return error

1.txt -> 2.txt // error file existed
2.txt -> 3.txt // error file existed
3.txt -> 4.txt // valid

However all rules are valid when renaming using Total Commander
It automatically solved said problem and returns 2.txt/3.txt/4.txt in one run

I don't know how it did it, maybe quietly move to a temp folder and move back or something

Can advanced renamer support this feature too please? It's very convenient for photos/documents handling

In this case simply reverse the order of files in the List:

3.txt -> 4.txt
2.txt -> 3.txt
1.txt -> 2.txt

It's just a simple demo, it won't work for all realistic (complicated) scenario
