    The MacOS solution seems more intuitive to me, There’s a UI with discoverable and clearly named options, and a preview feature, versus having type some special syntax. I think you’ve been misled by the size of the article which could have been condensed to a single sentence without leaving too many readers behind.

    Really glad to read about this, and I appreciate MacRumors taking the time to offer these tips. I was using Path Finder and NameMangler to do this, but I see that it's a standard part of Finder now, aside from the ability to use regular expressions to rename a file which Finder currently lacks. Usually I only need to add a suffix to the end of a filename in my use cases, so maybe Finder is good enough :)

    This might be a Mac forum but I use Windows as well and that was a helpful tip
