Rename File task to change file extension
Aug 22nd, 2012 at 6:21am
 
Hi,

We are evaluating the current downloadable version of WatchDirectory for a simple task of renaming file extensions.
I cannot work out how to do this with the rename Files task. Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks.

Hello,

Please see the attached picture. There is a little buglet in this plugin: you MUST always enter an old/new value, otherwise you can not continue (I just let it change $ for $).

The "move to" entry determines the final filename, I entered
C:\SomeDirectory\{relativedir}\{filetitle}.new
which cause all extensions to be replaced by ".new".

Hope that helps.

Hi Gert,

Yes, that helps immensely. Thanks for your swift support. WD looks to be what we need, with the right level of configuration.

Thanks,
Nick
