hey, i don't know if i did post in the right section, i'm sorry for this. Also i'm sorry for my bad english too.
what i'm looking for: i have 1000 PDF files with random names and i have also a txt list with my custom names. All i want to do is to rename all my 1000PDF's random names with my custom names, how can i do that? Also how can i copy all 1000 PDF names to a txt file? don't want to lose the random names eighter, thank you
If the current filenames are random, then does it really matter which file receives a specific filename?
Or do you just want to rename all the files to something like:
You can use Bridge's Batch Rename tool.
Providing sample before/after filenames would help, as well as whether you do need a way to explicitly match before after names. If you can avoid using a spreadsheet that would be the simplest result
hey, yes dosen't matter cause those 1000 PDF are 1000 copy of one single PDF but only have different names. Also how can i copy all those 1000 names to one txt file? thank you
You don't need a text file to rename then, you can just use the batch rename tool.
Do you need a text file of the new names before or after renaming, but not to actually perform the rename?
Bridge's Batch Rename can export out of csv of before/after filenames.
Some other options for gathering long lists of filenames are explored in my blogpost here:
