Hi Kim
Currently I am using the portable version of Aren. I have added Aren to the 'SendTo' context submenu. This is because I want to keep the installed applications to a minimum, so for utilities/tools applications I always try to find a portable version.
I think when Advanced Renamer is 'setup' (installed), there is an item 'Add to Advanced Renamer'.

Maybe it would be an idea to add a context menu item "Advanced Renamer"
with subitems,
->Add to Advanced Renamer Default
(this will launch Aren with neither a preset, nor last state)
->Add to Advanced Renamer LastRename
(this will launch Aren using the last rename)
->Add to Advanced Renamer preset {PresetName1}
Add to Advanced Renamer preset {PresetName2}
Add to Advanced Renamer preset {PresetName3}
(this will launch Aren using either one of the presets that have been saved by the user)

What do you think?

The Add to Advanced Renamer can also be used when using the portable version. But be aware, the current version only supports this option in 32 bit Windows. Version 3.5 will handle explorer context menus in both 32 and 64 bit editions of Windows.
I don't plan to add any more context menu options.

Hi Kim,
Thanks.
Surely looking forward to the 64bit version...

Haven't checked it but would be possible to run Advanced Renamer with a preset as parameter?
Maybe I cud then add a context menu myself, whilst using Directory Opus as Explorer replacement.

Thanks again!

At the moment presets can only be opened if it is the only parameter. This means you cannot open a preset and add files at the same time. But it is easy for me to change that.
Version 3.50 final will get released mid August.

My idea is that I would select a number of files, then select a 'userdefined' "AdvancedRenamer with 1 preset"-item in the context menu and have that one applied on the files seleted.

Aren presetname.aren

does not work.

thanks

"aren.exe presetname.aren" should work. Remember the preset name might need to be a full path and if it contains spaces it must be enclosed in quotes ".
