Let's say I have 5 image files, both jpegs and pngs.
I want all of them in the same folder as they're related, and want them numbered 1-5.
Currently, this is the best way I can get them to appear:
bikes001.jpg
bikes001.png
bikes002.jpg
bikes002.png
etc.
What I want is:
bikes001.jpg
bikes002.png
bikes003.jpg
bikes004.png
etc.
I want the numbering to be in sequence for ALL files, ignoring the file extension.
What setting do I use for this? I've tinkered around long enough that I need help.

Every method has the "Apply To" option to apply changes to "Name", "Extension", OR "Name and Extension". Check which option you have selected, and change it to "Name" only. Then use the <INC NR> tag to linearly rename your files. Refer to the User Manual for more details regarding the tags.

It looks like you have been trying to use a collision rule to append the number. As LB has posted you should use the <Inc Nr> tag instead, applied to the file name only.

To zero-pad your numbers to three digits you will need to specify the padding in the tag - ie <Inc Nr:001>. However this will only work if the option "Use zero padding in Inc Nr tags" is selected in the "Renaming" tab of the "Settings" dialogue (under the "Program" menu). This feature should be turned on by default but check the setting if you have problems.
