bAuto Rename Dialog

FTP Voyager can automatically rename files before they reach their destination. This dialog is found within the Auto Rename category within the Options. This dialog allows you to create an Auto Rename rule for this purpose. The dialog is split up into an upper and lower section. The upper section contains the controls for defining a new Auto Rename rule. The lower section allows you to test how a filename is converted when the Auto Rename rule is applied.

The upper section of the dialog is explained below:

To this:

Enter the filename that will replace all filenames that match the pattern that was specified above. You may use '*' wildcard.
