This is a very simple method. There are no fancy features in this method. To use it, you have to type in the new filename of every file in the list or load the new names from some external source.
Note: You can use tags in this method.
You can use the Load List and Save List buttons to load and save lists of filenames. You can load a file that contains a previous Advanced Renamer file list (a list saved by List -> Save List), but you cannot load that list with List -> Load List.
