I'm looking for a renaming app that can replace all the diacritical characters with ASCII ones; can filewrangler do this?
On Windows, I just used ReNamer, with which it was a breeze, however, I have not yet found a replacement for the Mac.

I've used the old version for years. Got a new Mac had to BUY the new version. Dug around until I found the invalid characters section where you could highlight invalid characters. Miss the ability to have the software fix these characters for you. Regex is also missed. Could've solved the whole thing in one line.

The builder concept is a neat idea, but if you have to have 8 renamer boxes to strip out most of the bad Unix and dos characters it takes some time to set it up. The ability to save the previous set is a nice idea. On the illegal characters under preferences there is an option to save the custom character list, but it does not show in the dropdown once it's created.

New Version 2 - thanks Mr. Developer.

As he says, it's a totally new version with a new, minimalist interface that took me a few minutes to figure out how to complete my first task, but it's as quick as ever. Where's that manual ... looks great, thanks.

I suppose I should have made the link more obvious, but in the product description the last parts reads "So, here it is." I'll update the description to make it crystal clear. Thanks for the quick, early feedback!

Thanks for your response. I saw the link to the manual but I'm one of those who only goes there when totally lost :-) Couldn't you make the manual accessible from the Help menu when needed rather than going to the website to find a copy? Thanks very much for your wonderful app.

This software was easy to use and very fast. It renames 3000 files in about 4 seconds. Unly kudos!

The drag and drop feature didn't work when dragging finder search results onto the app window... which is the thing i was trying to do.

FileWrangler has an extensive, and impressive, feature set. I had been using Renamer4Mac, too. If it has crashed on you, it's always good practice to inform the developer, as I did. I have been looking to find a fast way to rename files that contain invalid characters under SMB. I am now backing up to an SMB server which has forced me to rename my documents for that purpose. FileWrangler seems ideally suited for renaming batches of images from digital cameras, and has a UNIX file name violation filter, but not one for SMB filtering. Great app. though.

FileWrangler is useful if you want to rename files, but I can't find a way of renaming folders or symbolic links

Have started using this to rename MANY medical images taken for teaching, etc. Very complete program and fast. Can't find any glitches yet.
I think it may be more complete and easier than Renamer4Mac, which I've been using: it has crashed some, but usually is fine. That's why I searched for a more stable product: I think this is it. Will followup in weeks.
