I've been using DataCrow 3.8.7 and appreciate its flexibility.
I understand the File Renamer Tool (Books) cannot use restricted text characters like /*\:.
However, I am unable to insert any nonrestricted characters other than letter, numbers, + and =. The tool will not allow me to insert other simple characters such as period (.), comma (,), parentheses (), hyphen (-), ampersand (&), underline (_) or even a blank space ( ).
Is this restriction intentional or a bug? Is there any way to insert simple nonrestricted into the File Renamer pattern template? Without these simple characters, all words run together and the new file name becomes relatively unreadable.
I'll investigate; it might be a bug or a, erm, implementation decision.
Just started using this program (v3.9.10).
And in general (apart from a few hitches), I definitely like it, also compared to other similar programs I have been testing over the last weeks. Especially the option of adding user defined fields is a big pro for me.
Likewise, I was happily surprised to 'discover' this option of renaming files; this would make my life a lot easier, not having to do this myself, manually, for each file - saving me an awful lot of time. This happy feeling quickly vanished again, as soon as I ran into the same restriction of only able to use the £, + and = characters, making this option more or less useless (for my particular usage!)
Any change this will change in future releases?
I tried recently and it still doesn't work on the portabl version.
