Name Mangler is a blazingly-fast multi-file renaming tool that’s incredibly easy to use.

  • Create single or multistep renaming actions, save them, and share them across Macs
  • Rename in excess of 2,000 files per second
  • Use files’ metadata (e.g. ISO speed, dimensions, bit rate, etc.) in new names
  • Before and after views of your filenames insure you rename them as you intend
  • Save renaming tasks as droplets: just draganddrop files onto a droplet, and they’ll be renamed
  • Load any previouslyused rename action from the History browser

Name Mangler 3 represents a quantum leap forward in file renaming: speed and beauty combined with ease of use, and loaded with features.

For those coming from Name Mangler 2, here’s what’s new in this version:

— Tons of new features—
  • Multistep renaming lets you perform complex renaming tasks without touching Advanced mode
  • Metadata accessible for use in all renaming operations, via an intuitive metadata browser
  • Save any renaming action as a Preset, and automatically sync those presets across Macs
  • Export renaming actions for sharing via email, etc.
  • History keeps track of all performed actions, making it simple to reuse these actions
  •  Revert lastused renaming operation
  • Shiftdrag to file list will add the dragged files to the existing list
  •  Delete presets (and snippets, see below) from within Name Mangler by using the Option key
  • Optionally display only files that will be renamed, instead of all files in the list
  •  Automatically detect potential duplicates and flag (or optionally automatically fix)
  •  Finder is no longer required to be running to use Name Mangler
  • Check for file writable status and warn user if files are not writable
— User interface improvements—
  • Fully retinaized for the retina Mac laptops
  • The popup button for the rename operations has been moved out of the toolbar
  • The ‘Rename’ button is in a more logical and visible spot
  •  Choose a dark or light appearance for the file list area
  • The rename action area can be expanded horizontally
  • Status lights next to each filename deliver ataglance info on renaming state
  • Interim results show filenames at each step of a multistep renaming task
  •  Tooltips show original names, new names, and errors
  • Query field in Find and Replace makes it more obvious when in regular expression mode
  • Status light for regular expressions shows syntax checking state (green=good, red=bad)
  •  New large icon view
  •  Automatic view mode determines what details to show based on sort order
— Mind-boggling speed improvements—
  • Load tens of thousands of files from Finder in only seconds
  • 50 to 100+ times faster than Name Mangler 2
  •  Rename from 1,000 to in excess of 2,000 files per second
  •  So fast, you may think it’s not doing anything…but it is!
— New/improved renaming actions—
  • New action: Compose, to start with a completely blank slate
  • Split Insert/Remove into two distinct actions
  • Split Prefix/Suffix into two distinct actions
  • Sequence has been greatly simplified, thanks to multistep
  • New Sequence formats: Roman Numerals and Letters
  • Sequence start and increments can be negative
  • Increased the maximum and minimum limits for Sequence values
  • Arbitrary Terms is now a format in the Sequence action
  •  Arbitrary Terms can take a CSV formatted file as input
— Advances in Advanced mode—
  •  New function: [random (number of character) from (pool)]
  • Autocomplete functions and variables
  •  Tab to next empty parameter
  • Autoindent
  • Selection (or line) can be shifted in or out via Command[ and Command]
  •  Find and replace
  • Save any Advanced program as a Preset for easy reuse
  •  Create snippets of portions of code for easy reuse in other Advanced programs
  • Automatically sync snippets to multiple Macs

What’s New in Name Mangler 3.4.1

  • Hold down Shift in the ‘List’ popup menu to select Files, Folders, and Folders Contents with one click.
  •  Set regular expressions’ free spacing mode on/off in Name Mangler’s preferences.
  • Change the default action (Find and Replace) to whatever you like: Set up your action(s), then hold the Option key and select File > Save Default Configuration.
  • The good/problem/error indicators are now distinct in both shape and color; we apologize for the previously nondifferented indicators, which caused problems for color blind users.
  • If you exclude files from renaming operations, we now present a (hopefully) much clearer dialog, letting you know that files won’t be renamed.
  • Updated indicators in the List popup menu to more clearly show what’s been selected.
  • Fixed a bug involving quotes when using Find in Advanced mode renaming actions. (Hat tip to Hermann W. for finding this one.)
  • Fixed a bug related to manually entering a value in the Index field of the Insert or Remove action, then using the up and down arrows.
