Hi folks,

reading thru this forum, I found some date format issues, but none worked for me.

I'd like to change filenames that have the format:

yyyy-mm-dd Name.pdf

Separating with a dot, wasn't a good idea, I know.
Is there an easy way to accomplish that?

Really cool would be, if the date could be written to createDate, too.
But this isn't essential for me.

Thanks in advance

This should be obvious if you read the User Guide!


1. Replace method
Text to be replaced: (\d{2}).(\d{2}).(\d{4})
Replace with: \3-\2-\1
Use regular expressions

2. Timestamp method...
Apply to: Created date and time
Pattern: <Day>.<Month>.<Year>
