Great tool, works for many of my files.

However I do have a problem, many of my files contain Turkish characters such as
Ý ý Ü ü Ð ð Ç ç Þ þ Ö ö

For example, when I try to add a file named "3.GRUP TESLÝM_111003.xls"
I get the following message:
"1 items were not found"

I am guessing the culprit is the upper case Turkish i with a dot ("Ý") in the file name.
One of my main purposes to use Advanced Renamer is exactly related w/ these characters, I would like to replace them with "regular" characters. But I can not even add the file to do the renaming.
Is there a way that I can make this work?

Best regards, and thanks for the great job.

Looks like 6 of the Turkish characters I wrote in my above message are the real problematic ones.
I found the below info on Wikipedia and I hope it will help you in directing me to a solution to my problem:

"The Turkish alphabet contains six letters not present in ISO 8859-1, and that will therefore present problems: Dotted uppercase "I", dotless lowercase "i", upper- and lowercase "G" with breve accent, and upper- and lowercase "S" with cedilla.

Turkish computers may use character set ISO 8859-9 ("Latin 5"), which is identical to Latin 1 except that the rarely used Icelandic characters "eth", "thorn", and "y with acute accent" are replaced with the needed Turkish characters. "

The support for foreign characters like the ones you mention is not always supported. They will be supported some day but I cannot say anything about when.

Too bad you cannot even add those files. Otherwise I would suggest you to create Replace methods for each kind of special character if you want to.

Replace [à ý]
to y

Replace [Ãüúù]
to u
