- Select all files
- add Replace Method (http://www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/metho d_replace)
- search for "Fron"
- replace by "Back"

Buddy i want only even numbered files to be changed not all files. i cannot select or deselect manually since there are 1000s of files. manually selecting can cause a human error as well.
i need a script

That's now modified to a much more clear question now, buddy.


That enables me to provide a better solution.

FROM:
Fron1.ext
Fron2.ext
Fron3.ext
Fron4.ext
Fron5.ext
Fron6.ext

TO:
Fron1.ext
Back2.ext <
Fron3.ext
Back4.ext <
Fron5.ext
Back6.ext <

Rule:
Work on every second file from the list.
(To be clear, that means: not taking the real odd or even digits
of the file name into account. That would be another script)



Use Method Script with a JavaScript like this:

//-------------

newname = item.name;

if (index % 2 == 1)
newname = newname.replace(/Fron/g, 'Back');

return newname;

//-------------




Tip for others:
To work on every first file, use
"if (index % 2 == 0)"


.
