Maybe the requirements are not correct. Version 1.5.6 crashes on startup on 10.6.8 and I think it's because the developer embedded java 1.7.0, not compatible with SL afaik.

I've posted in the support forums, but as I appear to be the very first poster, thought I'd report here too.

I love this app, the best free option, imho.

Very quickly solved: see Reviews/Comments tab. Thanks to the developer!

The only one that allows me to copy a list of filenames to a text editor, prepare the names there, copy the new names to clipboard, and then rename from clipboard. With a good editor, this is usually the most efficient way (sometimes the only way) to rename a bunch of files that don't share a common pattern.

I took a half star off because I still need to copy original filenames from Path Finder, not within this utility.

Thank you for the feedback. Glad to hear you find the app useful.

But actually you can use vRenamer as a browser, and have the files loaded without Finder. Just go to "View" and untick "Drop Mode".

Furthermore, if you click on "Path" hidden button, you will get a dialog to select the desired folder.

Finally, you can simply copy/paste a route onto the path box.

Hope it helps
