Hello

I'm hoping someone can help me with this one. I have a list of files that I would like to add an ascending number to the beginning. I have figured out how to use the Add method using <Inc Nr:1>. So files

ABC.txt
DEF.txt
GHI.txt

become

1ABC.txt
2DEF.txt
3GHI.txt

I would like to go a step futher and add a decimal after each number, so I would get

1.ABC.txt
2.DEF.txt
3.GHI.txt

I have been trying the Replace method without luck.
One more thing I should mention, is that I would like the decimal to remain at the end of the number when double digits start, so that 10 is 10. not 1.0
And if possible, what about a space after the decimal, so I would get

1. ABC.txt
2. DEF.txt
3. GHI.txt

Thank you.

You haven't bothered to read the documentation, have you? The answer is as obvious as could possibly be...

Just do what you are asking - add a decimal point and a space after the number!

It may be obvious to you but I'm new to this program. The documentation can be confusing. I read thru it but I couldn't find the answer, so I asked.

From the User Guide:

"Add method
If your filename is missing some words or letters, use this method to add some extra to your filename at a given position.

Add
Specify the text that should be added.
Note: You can use tags here. "

The text you want to add is a decimal point and a space following the <Inc Nr:1> tag.


I'm sorry, but I fail to understand how you could possibly find this "confusing" if you had actually read it!
