eBook renaming utility similar to FileBot? Anyone???

I use FileBot a LOT. After learning how to use it to it's capabilities, it's an exceptionally well written and very useful tool to keep my movie and TV library named, and even more importantly, those names are accurate and consistently formatted. This is because of it's ability to parse the file nam...

Re: How to blank/reset "Select best match for" entries?

I guess you could upgrade to the latest release or revision. That should reset the selection cache. I'll give that a try. My copy hadn't notified me of a need to upgrade from my Win64 4.9.2 to 4.9.3 . Actually, I'd normally prefer that such user- customizations would survive upgrades, especially th...

Re: How to blank/reset "Select best match for" entries?

Thanks for the response, but I'd like to reset my entire history of my previous choices. I'd been doing it wrong for quite a few choices, and now ever time I try to rename one of those shows, I get the "wrong" choice as a first option, for each show I try to rename that hadn't been "corrected" recen...

How to blank/reset "Select best match for" entries?

I am using the GUI to rename shows, and I misunderstood what the "Select best match for" dialog box meant when it popped up. I thought it meant I should click "All" to confirm that all the different files listed were of the same series. I assumed this would be a function to save time in scanning the...

Re: Release Groups {group}

No, I'm not saying "[ MVGroup.org ] is preferred over [ MVGroup ]" but rather it's not recognized at all. [ MVGroup.org ] isn't matched at all, from your list as a valid pre-identified group name. INPUT: Original filename 2018.720p.HDTV.x264.AAC.MVGroup.org.mp4 OUTPUT: Original filename (2018 HDTV)....

Re: Release Groups {group}

Please add
MVGroup.org

Note: This release group's name is already in the known release groups as
MVGroup

But but most files from them now have their group name shown with a file extension and FileBot isn't matching the existing version.

Got IMdB #, how to force TMdB lookup

I have a collection of individual shows, mostly individual documentaries, not parts of a series. Most have their own IMdB entry so I can find their IMdB# by doing an Episode or Title search. Is there I way I can embed the IMdB# I manually find, into the filename so when I then use FileBot to search ...

How to stop Directory Name being taken as Series Name

I know that FileBot looks at the name of the containing directory as one possibility of the Series Name, and that feature has come in handy quite a few times. But also, a few times it is aggravating. Example: I have a directory "C:\Working" where I move files that are to be renamed. Most Series Name...

Re: Where are FileBot's settings saved? (copy to new machine

Settings are in the registry. Rename history is somewhere in APP_DATA. But FileBot is pretty much state-less, so just copy your formats and that should be pretty much it. Thanks, that's what I thought. I keep a text file with my current rename format-expressions for the three types, but I also some...

Where are FileBot's settings saved? (copy to new machine)

How can I copy/transfer my current settings and format expressions to a different machine (or a new install of my current one)? IE: Where does FileBot keep my preferences, settings and such? (I don't see this information in the *.ini file.) I need to do a clean (re)install of Windows 7, which will r...

Rename format - based on last char?

I keep track of which shows I've watched by appending an underscore character "_" to the file name. During renaming, is there a way to check if the last character is a "_" and base the renaming format on the result? EXAMPLE Original name, Unwatched: Secrets.of.the.Dead.13x5.The.Mona.Lisa.Mystery.hdt...

Re: Help in deleting Renaming Format scheme

Thanks for the fast reply, but you misunderstand. I have created several customized ReNaming Schemes, some using specific paths so that as a part of the renaming, the files are also relocated. However, the actual paths were altered and I had to update the ReNaming Schemes to reflect these difference...

Help in deleting Renaming Format scheme

This seems like it will have a really simple answer, but I've tried all I can. How can you delete an unwanted Renaming Format Scheme? Deleting the entire contents of the Format Scheme dialog box results in no change. Any change other than a complete deletion, just creates a new scheme. Right Clickin...
