I have seem many request for better file renaming within "Copy Design", this request is to add the renaming functionality.
It would be good to be able to replace a selected string length, within a name, with a new set of text.
My example is as follows: The first 5 characters of my file name are a code linked to the specific internal project number for the design. If I want to copy designs from various internal projects for reuse in a new project I need to replace the first 5 characters with a new text.
Project 1 code = 12345
Project 2 code = xx12x
If I run a rename of just the first 5 characters I can rename all the parts at once to have a new project number, instead of having to do a replace all for each project code copied from.
What would be nice is to be able to specify a seperator (in this case "-") and replace all text before it.
Use of wildcards would also help.
