I have files to rename with the extension tif and xml, but its important that the tif and xml have the same name
For example
0001.xml
0001.tif
0002.xml
0002.tif
...
0010.xml
0010.tif
ect.
When I say add the files and sort them on name then I see ooo1.tif and the xml-file that should be 0001.xml is called 0002.xml
When I sort on extension I see that the files are not in the right order

It all really depends on the methods you use and the names prior to renaming. I don't know how your files are named so it is difficult to guide you in the right direction.

They have the following name / structure

OLD NAME NEW NAME

MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0102.tif 0001.tif
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0102.xml 0001.xml
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0103.tif 0002.tif
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0103.xml 0002.xml
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0104.tif 0003.tif
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0104.xml 0003.xml
...
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0112.tif 0010.tif
MH51 Ezra 01_0000_0112.xml 0010.xml
ect


Because the folder already has the name of author and book thats why the files now must have the NEW NAME you see above and I can't rename them at once so I first add the tif and rename them in 0001.tif, 0002.tif ect AND click START BATCH and the I add the xml-files and rename them in 0001.xml, 0002.xml ext

Thank you very very much so far. It worked, but there is only one problem left
When I have a file
MH51 Ezra 0040 tif
MH51 Ezra 0040 xml
MH51 Ezra 0041 tif
MH51 Ezra 0041 xml
MH51 Ezra 0042 tif
MH51 Ezra 0042 xml
MH51 Ezra 0043 tif
MH51 Ezra 0043 xml
MH51 Ezra 0044 tif
MH51 Ezra 0044 xml
MH51 Ezra 0045 tif
MH51 Ezra 0045 xml
MH51 Ezra 0046 tif
MH51 Ezra 0046 xml
MH51 Ezra 0047 tif
MH51 Ezra 0047 xml
MH51 Ezra 0048 tif
MH51 Ezra 0048 xml
MH51 Ezra 0049 tif
MH51 Ezra 0049 xml
MH51 Ezra 0050 tif
MH51 Ezra 0050 xml

THEN
They are renamed in 0040.tif AND 0040.xml
BUT
I always want the numbering to start with 0001.tif AND 0001.xml
SO
0001.tif
0001.xml
0002.tif
0002.xml
0003.tif
0003.xml
ect.
0010.tif
0010.xml

Add a second method (after joci's 'New Name' method) to renumber the sequence:

Method: Renumber
Number position: 1
Change to: Absolute number
New number: 1
Skip: 1
Zero padding: Manual
Number length: 4
Apply to: Name
