I just started fiddling with pfrank and am very amused.

I am using the counter in front of text to number files (to 3 decimal places).

however, it's leaving an underscore after the number, but before the text.

any way to replace the underscore with a space?

Text used is as follows

1 <left> (?x)[0-9] # delete numbers
2. <right> *Insert Counter before*All*

thanks in advance. Smile

Yes,

Just add a third entry in the custom renaming creator to translate underscores to spaces.

eg (don't copy the single quotes).

Search: '_'
Replace: ' '

Hope that helps,

peter.

tried that text in

line 3
line 4

as well as both in line 3 (just a space separating the two)

both were in left column.

no removal of underscore after count.

In fact the preview showed it added another one.

any other ideas?

The following works for me; both in the sample name previewer and in the Detailed Information window. The underscore from the counter insertion is removed.

Row: 1
Search:
Replace: '*Insert Counter after*Prefix*'
Row: 2
Search: '_'
Replace:

If you are still having trouble, then send me the output from the Summary panel at the bottom of the main window and I'll have a look.

Peter.

yeah

once I figured out putting a single underscore in the search column and a space in the replace column it works great .

much thanks. Smile

edit: I spoke too soon.

I ran my new procedure on a new folder, and it's not seeing two of the files.

they had recently been updated.

how do I get pkfrank to see the files so I can sort them in the proper order and update?

edit: nvm, I found out you need to make sure each file is listed with a different number and if numbers are changed, you need to close the program and reopen it.

this is odd.

I added a new file properly numbered (001 cover page) and pkfrank isn't seeing it.

I thought it might be because their were multiple docs that had the same number so I tried calling the duplicates completely different numbers and then pulling them into sequence.

when that didn't work, I did the arduous task of renumbering it from scratch and then tried viewing it in pkfrank, but it's still not seeing it.

the os is windows vista
the file type is .doc

my files are basically <number> <filename>.doc

open to suggestions at this point.
