855 - Multi rename - renaming with counter if some files already use it

#1 Post by Dreamer » 28.10.2021, 20:15

Multi rename - renaming with counter if some files already use it work strange.

To reproduce use default settings and files with similar names as on the screenshots and use this pattern for Name:
fc Multi rename - renaming with counter if some files already use it.png
Then I tried to click the "Old name" header to change sorting order, then I tried it again - with default settings again - all files in the Settings folder were deleted before starting - I had different behavior - all items are green.

After clicking to Rename button some items are red - not renamed.

After clicking to Reload button I had this result:

After clicking to Rename button files were renamed.

Everything is a bit strange, it looks that changing sorting "old name" has no effect when renaming, or it's broken somehow, works different when reopening the dialog, auto preview doesn't work good either, but it's hard to reproduce.

In similar cases it's possible to rename all files, but the operation must be performed twice, 3 clicks.

Perhaps FC should check the duplicates for the "new name" list, or try to rename failed items automatically after first operation, it would help in cases like this.
