I know how to add a character before each upper case letter using a Regular Expression - perhaps someone else can suggest how to prevent that putting a dot at the beginning of the filename, to avoid having to remove it in a second step.

However - using two methods...

1: Replace ([A-Z]) with .\1
Occurrence: All
Case sensitive
Use regular expressions

2: Remove
Remove count: 1
Starting at: 1

This has been nagging at me - I finally found the answer in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perl_Compatible_Re gular_Expressions

\K will reset the start of the current whole match - so match the first character and then reset.

So - using only a single Replace method...

Replace .\K([A-Z]) with .\1
Occurrence: All
Case sensitive
Use regular expressions

Note that in the match string "." signifies 'match any character' but in the replace string it represents itself - ie the literal character "."

David Lee, thanks for the help, could you create a ".zen" and make it available for me?

I understand little English and I am having difficulty understanding the explanation. (I'm using google translator)


========

Update, I managed to understand

Only then did I have to add a blank "remove pattern" to fade away the spaces that remained.

Thank you for your help!

You should not need a "Remove pattern" method.
The "Replace" method should not be leaving any spaces if you have entered it correctly.

Text to be replaced: ".\K([A-Z])"
Replace with: ".\1"
Occurrence: "All"
Case sensitive: "√"
Use regular expressions: "√"
Apply to: "Name"

I do not understand what you mean by 'create a ".zen" '

Your profile says you are from Brasil - is your language Portuguese?
If so have a look at: https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Express%C3%A3o_reg ular
