    Hi
    Could someone please recommend a file renaming app that supports wildcards ie * and ?. I use Name mangler and have no idea how to use it other than with the find & replace, and I would like to use wild cards to identify lists of files that are numerically listed, so it would be easier for me to use wildcards rather than write/use a droplet.
    cheers & thanks in advance

    Use Terminal and a 3-line bash script.

    Name Mangler also has an advanced editor you can use to probably do what you want.

    Have you read through the help in Name Mangler? It's pretty detailed and gives lots of examples. I haven't used it for much more than what you have, but it appears to have the advanced functions you are looking for. If you don't see it there, how about giving us a specific example of what you want to do.

    Name Mangler costs money now, unfortunately (they have a trial, but still).

    NameChanger is free and supports wildcards. It's pretty functional, too.

    Cool. Thanks Caleb531. OP, let us know if that does what you require, OK? :)
