Batch Rename & Sort

For the most up-to-date documentation, please visit docs.brix.ch

Enables efficient renaming and consecutive numbering of selected assets. They can be renamed with a prefix and suffix and a running number (starting from a given value) or you can use search & replace to change certain words in the file name.

Furthermore the order of the assets may be changed in the same dialog using drag & drop or through sorting by id, name, file name, capture date (if recorded by the camera), upload date or modification date. If desired, the (superfluous) file extension can be omitted in the new name.
