List of wild cards and syntax for name and extension field

#1 Post by sativarg » 27.05.2019, 22:17

I am blind and a donor.
I used to be able to see a button at the name and extension fields with drop box for suggestions but now I can not find that in the donor version. Navigating the rename interface and the options/settings is hard for the blind as it is but now the buttons seem missing,
NVDA screen reader relies on objects for navigation and I can guess what the fields are only because I used to be able to see... field names would help?
Objects even more so?
could I get a list of suggestions and or syntax rules for the renaming of files?
You know like [n,3-5][e][n,6] could put the extension into the name etc... I used to do all sorts of trix with the great syntax and wild cards in the day and now I feel like my hands are tied.
I love the rename tool by the way so thank you for the great Free commander resource...

thanks and blessings
