Hi there! Thanks for your help with this. I found the batch rename macro in KM, but I don't know how to tweak it to not prompt anything and to automatically replace the filenames with what I have in the clipboard.
I'll always need to replace "Project Title - Composer" with what I have in the clipboard.
Start with what you do know -- and don't limit it to Keyboard Maestro knowledge!
If each file name was a piece of text, eg in Word, how would you do this? Which of KM's many actions look like they replace text? Are there any tokens that would let you use the contents of the clipboard?
If you can put that together so you can change the text in a variable from "Project Title - Composer - Version 2" to "<contents of clipboard> - Version 2" -- you're halfway there! You can either drop that in to the macro you already have in place of its "name-mangling" bit, or borrow bits of that macro to add to yours to get folder selection, the changing of the name, etc.
In all honesty, I think I prefer the "Split Path" action, it makes it explicit what's happening rather than forcing the brain into action to decode some weird symbols -- "So we're treating the path as an array, delimited by /, then taking the last element, which is the name of the file or folder... Why didn't you just say that, you numpty!?".
