Hello again,
Been a while since I've needed help but I'm stuck again.

I'm looking for a regex to capitalize single letters that are followed by a period. '.'

ie.
Company R.G.F.

becomes
Company R.g.f.

when using the sentence case option and I am trying to correct it.

It wouldn't be a problem with just a few files, but it has come up quite often.

Thanks,
Eidolen

Hi,

Unfortunately there is no elegant way to do this.
The brute force way is to add a translation row for each letter.

e.g.

Row: 1
Search: '(?E)a\.'
Replace: 'A.'
Row: 2
Search: '(?E)b\.'
Replace: 'B.'
Row: 3
Search: '(?E)c\.'
Replace: 'C.'


You can continue this pattern for all 27 letters of the alphabet.

Peter.

That's fine, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything obvious.

Thanks for the quick reply and helpful answer.

I almost forgot,
I am also having trouble with the Post Processing feature. It seems that no matter what I try, I can NOT get rid of the separator on a single pass, but I can user the exact same regex after the first rename and it works fine.

Is there a bug I'm unaware of, or am I just doing something wrong?

Thanks

Sorry but I need more details on exactly what the problem is.
Please post some example before/required-new names, before/resulting-new names, and the summary information displayed by PFrank after the scan.

Thanks,

Peter.
