shortcut to rename profiles

#1 Post by therealjd » 29.10.2018, 18:55

Is there a way to make a keyboard shortcut to activate a multiple renaming profile on selected files?

I often have to append the current date to a file and though i can do it through the multirename dialog, i was wondering if there's a way to activate a renaming profile through a shortcut.

It's not a real shortcut, just a workaround, but it works like that:

- in Multirename dialog menu > Options > set option "Activate profiles combo box first"
- rename profiles so, that each has a different first character, e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4
- close Multirename dialog
- select 2 or more items
- press F2
- press 2 (or you can use arrow keys to select profile)
- preset with the name starting with "2" will be activated
- now just press Enter to start

Note: Option "Activate profiles combo box first" doesn't work, I'll start a new topic for this issue.

Workaround, after pressing F2 press Ctrl+Tab to activate the tab with profiles, then "2" and Enter...
