A User of Multiple File Rename for Google Drive
I understand that this is a free extension, but I honestly don't see the point of it and wish there was a better option. I find it's 4 star rating extremely suspect considering that it doesn't perform basic renaming functions, and also because only 36 reviews are available out of the alleged 440. I think that the Bulk File Renamer was a much better option with better logic, despite it's 3 star rating and the fact that it's no longer verified by Google and therefore unavailable for download (since it can't be linked to a Drive account).
1) There are no instructions that I can find and if they exist they should be much more obvious. If the "regexp tester" is supposed to help me, it doesn't. I tired some of the things mentioned, and none worked.
2) Related to that, there's no way to contact the developer for help and no help option.
3) It can't rename files sequentially, so basically they'd all be renamed the same thing and then I'd have to manually add something to differentiate them (i.e. _01, _02, etc.)
4) If I want to rename a bunch of files that all have different suffixes (i.e. 201992510731_003231_735, 201992501212_163632_108), I'd have to copy and paste each individual suffix to change it to whatever I need, and then I run into problem 3 because now they're all named the same
