Looks like "cheminer" allows only bulk renaming of files in a whole tree. Would be cool to "cheminer" also in order to rename folders (only or with files).

Sorry if that option exists already, I did not find an obvious way to enable it...

By the way, yet your program is way cool! :)

Best regards.

    Yes I agree it would be very useful. However it is more complicated than renaming just the files recursively. The problem lies in the order the directories are renamed, the program would have to know to change the leaves (les dossiers les plus loins du chemin principal) first, then move its way to the root. Adding files into the equation gets even more complicated. If I can find a way to do this *safely* and *consistently* I will add this feature. Note this would only be added to Métamorphose2 (in alpha status at the moment).
    Thank you for your feedback.

    Work has begun on this, the latest SVN has limited support :
    Undo function does not yet work properly, and there may be some unexpected problems.

    Expect the next release (0.5.1) to have this fully imemented.
