Multi-Rename feature does not take into consideration the "quote" sign

#1 Post by Forez » 18.09.2020, 10:53

After selecting files and pressing CTRL+M the window for Multi-Rename option appears



After choosing

Settings > Case > First letter of each word uppercase, extension lowercase

the use can change e.g.

Code: Select all

a sample sentence FOR the purpose of This topic
into

Code: Select all

A Sample Sentence For The Purpose Of This Topic
But if the same example is a little more complex like

Code: Select all

a sample sentence ''FOR'' the purpose of This topic
then the user ends up with

Code: Select all

A Sample Sentence ''for'' The Purpose Of This Topic
So the first of the two

Code: Select all

'
signs in the filename, which are posing for one

Code: Select all

"
sign because >> " << is an illegal character, would be apparently counted by the algorithm as the first letter thus preventing the Multi-Rename feature from changing

Code: Select all

FOR
into correct

Code: Select all

For
producing only a half correct form

Code: Select all

for
But what is interesting, if the user would run this on

Code: Select all

a sample sentence #FOR the purpose of This topic
the user would end up with

Code: Select all

A Sample Sentence #For The Purpose Of This Topic
which would be A-OK. So this would suggest that it is a bug that manifests itself only with some of the non-letter characters



In other words: the description of the options says "first letter of each word" while in reality it is the first sign- but it does not work like that always. Quotes signs [or to be precise: their equivalents] are to be expected to appear in filenames- so this should be fixed
