I have a bunch of folders named “ - title”, “ - title” etc…, and I want to convert them to the pattern “2001 - title”, “2002 - title”. I’m coming from Thunar where this is very easy to do with the batch renamer, one simply specifies the removal of all characters from position 0 to 1, and then again from position 4 to 5. How can I do this in KRename?
If they’re all named with the same template (bracket, 4 numbers, bracket, rest of file name) then I would use this
There is a button called “Insert Part of Filename…” which lets you select an area to keep.
A similar way to the suggestion from @jackh, under
4. Filename in the
Simple Filename section, change the
Custom name and use
[$2-5][$7-] which gives you characters 2 to 5, then character 7 onward.
I’ve marked carmanaught’s post as the solution since it looks a little simpler, but thanks to both of you.
