It's great except it does not support regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind.

Why bother with an inflated 25 MB "advanced" tool with muddy licensing terms
while 485 KB slim Pintosoft's FocusOn Renamer v1.3 (Free for everyone - personal and commercial use) will perform just as well ?

While this app does many things I find Advanced Renamer is more than enough for my needs and much easier to use and learn, I'm just sayin.

error. I meant undo feature of Rename Master, not Advanced Renamer, although Advanced Renamer also has an undo feature, but in GUI only.

MIKLO on 2017-01-13 14:02

I tried this program and it does work fine but for me I much prefer Advanced Renamer,although they are similar everyone has a preference.

@shnbwmn There have been a TON of changes that you can check out in the Softpedia changelog, but I don't know if there's any crucial updates that you're missing out on with the old version. The program was one of my favorites before the change, but since there I've mostly switched to Ant Renamer.

den4b on 2020-03-31 10:53

An address to the concerned users...

The switch to the Lite and Pro editions was a very difficult decision but a necessary one, one that took years to shape up. In summary, if this switch did not take place, there would be no further development and the den4b project would cease to exist long ago.

You can read the full explanation and the reasoning behind it on the news board and the forum (https://www.den4b.com/news/1851/how-it-all-evolves-into-lite-vs-pro). That post also references an older post that highlighted some of the precursor issues 5 years earlier (https://www.den4b.com/news/438/great-and-not-so-great).

Regarding the comments that the switch occurred suddenly or secretly – that is simply not true. Such comments only demonstrate disregard and ignorance of the author. The posts referenced above illustrate how the change was unfolding over a period of at least 5 years, taking into account the feedback of the community of users. Furthermore, the change and the limitations were clearly communicated and documented in the changelog of every affected product.

If you do not wish to support developers – that is your choice. But why give out about something that you get for free. Move on to something that suits you better, as there are plenty of alternatives. For those who don’t mind, feel free to use older versions without official support.

I hope that this will shed some light on the issue and help you understand the reasons, if you wish to understand.

Take care.

What a weird random drive-by necro comment... Anyways, I still use v5.71 of this program, it works better/faster/and with less DPI issues then the newer ones surprisingly, and contains much less bloated, like mp3 meta data now... really?

But if you want to talk free vs pro, then my one main gripe with that is/was the "pro" versions were not portable, they stored the license file or whatever it was in the AppData location IIRC, I had to refund it years back because that was annoying to me.

Website still down, linking to Softpedia.
Download via pCloud.

Similarities with Lupas Rename are obvious. And this is good. But the website has been down for too long. And that's bad.

Nh on 2019-08-12 05:35

Future versions (after v10) will include sort by type. The feature added by the very responsive author. And this feature together with live preview (and other important settings) mekes it the best renamer - for me at least ;)
