Introduction

Simple Renaming Panel is a small and handy tool to rename more objects at the same. The tool includes basic functionalities like adding suffixes, prefixes, search and replace, add suffixes depending on the object type and more.
This tool can be a real everyday helper as renaming more objects is needed very often. This tool is kept simple to be user friendly. Nether the less there is still a lot of room to improve it. Feedback is highly welcome.

  • Search and Replace: A key feature for every renaming panel
  • Add prefix/suffix: very basic, yet powerful operation
  • Numerate Digits: Defines how many digits will be used for the numerate operation. (four digits = 0001, one digit = 1)

  • Trim length: A value of 4, means that the last for character get deleted when using Trim end of sting

  • Empty: adds suffixes to all empties
  • Curve: adds suffixes to all curves

    Nice add-on! Is there a way to simply set a new “middle name” for the objects? I have ten objects with different names that I want to rename to “Pipes” for instance, I don’t want to add prefixes or suffixes, just rename them entirely.

    Great idea, although I can’t get it to work, it just repeats the same “new name” like 3 times. Maybe I’m doing something wrong?

      That is weird. I don’t really understand the problem so I can’t look for it It would be useful if you could send me a screenshot or so, and I will take a look at it as soon as possible.
