A Better Finder Rename debuted nearly 20 years ago on the now venerable System 7. Then we migrated it to Mac OS X. completely rewrote every line of code for version 7. Added a powerful multi-stage renaming engine and a new user interface for version 8 and got addicted to meta-data tags and re-design the user experience once again for version 9.
Now a short three years and 54 point releases later, we have decided to go back to basics and take another leap in usability for newcomers and old-hands alike.
Version 10 takes the concept of an instant preview a step further, by not only previewing the "what" but also the "how" with our new change highlighting right within the preview list. This cuts down on trial and error and makes dialing in your actions much more intuitive and fun.
Our new preview pane reveals everything A Better Finder Rename knows about a specific file including a graphical preview of its contents and all available meta-data eliminating much guesswork.
Many complex renaming tasks require multi-step renaming workflows, but these can be difficult to master. A host of improvements to the multi-step interface make it much easier and more intuitive to manage large workflows.
Finally, A Better Finder Rename 10 now looks better than ever on Apple's new Yosemite and El Capitan operating systems, while retaining backwards compatibility all the way back to Mac OS X 10.7.
As our long term customers know, a new major upgrade marks not the end of a development cycle for us, but rather the beginning of a new one. Version 10 provides a solid basis for our monthly update schedule.
