Great app - and of course it's free so you can't complain too much. Does exactly what it promises to do - I needed to delete the first 13 characters of a bunch of filenames and this allowed me to do it. It would be cool if you could have multiple actions apply so for example delete first 13 characters and also delete the last 5 characters - but that's not a major problem. Glad this solved my issues.

I'm new using nameChanger. How do you add space between words? For example "MyDocument" to "My Document"? Thanks

BEWARE: I have been using NameChanger since 2015 without issue. Downloaded version 3.4.3 and started getting error message "The file 'Renames.sqlite' couldn’t be opened" when app is opened andf when ever I rename a batch of files. The file renaming works but error message is very annoying. Tried going back to previous version but it no longer works so stuck with buggy version 3.4.3. From other posts, it appears that this problem has been going on for a few years (2016) so developer doesn't appear to have any interest in fixing. Too bad.

I've been using NameChanger for close to 10 years, now (it's been out that long, right?). It was recommended to me by an IT Manager who knew more about Macs than Steve Jobs! It's an amazing little tool - little, but powerful and useful. It WILL save you tons of time and effort!!!

Really liked the software. Lightening fast and works as advertised. If you’re trying to add a number and other info it can make you do two steps to change the file with can be a little hassle, but it’s not too bad. Make sure you hide the .jpg or .tiff or .docx or whatever so you don’t mess up you file. Thanks guys, nice work.

Changing to title case does not work correctly. For example all those spellings for "of the" etc. still remain capitalized which is incorrect.

This is a great renaming app made even greater by the price (free!). The one feature it's missing that keeps it from being a full 5-star rating for me is an "undo" feature. I sometimes have to batch rename files temporarily to run another tool that processes based on the filename, then undo that renaming scheme once done. I have another renaming app in use that can do this, but I otherwise prefer the UI of NameChanger. and would love to be rid of that other one.

I am a digital scrapbooker and have thousands of files I organize and sometimes reorganize to get the most user friendly arrangement of these files. NameChanger has been invaluable for doing this. What could take days and/or an in-depth knowledge of some other method, takes a very short period of time. The only feature I would like to see added is "undo the last change".

It has been a great program for me until today after I upgraded to 3.1.0 from 3.0.2 in OSX 10.9.5. After that, every time I launch the program, there is a dialog box saying "Renames.sqlite couldn't be opened." I can still rename files, but every time any operation is finished, the same message will appear. Worse of all, all the saved Renaming operations are all gone. I managed to find the 3.0.2 version in the trash folder, but trashing the new version and putting the old one back does NOT help. The app crashes every time when I try to launch it. I hope someone can help but I will try to contact the developer as well.

Simple and powerful app for renaming files. I found a bug in v 2.3.3 and contacted the developer. He replied within 5 hours with a download link for the 3.0 beta where the bug has been fixed. PERFECT :-)
