Description
Can't rename more than one file
Steps to reproduce this issue
when selecting more than one file to rename. BE reverts to one file and only renames that one file. Don't know if this is a bug or oversite ?Can you fix ? In explorer all the selected files will be renamed.

How about implementing something like "Flexible Renamer", http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA014830/english/FlexRena/, or "just" building it ourselfs? If I just were a programmer...

Third party app is difficult to implement since the way it will give filenames to that app depending on the app. And i have postponed this since there is no time to implement it for beta2. In beta 3 there will be such a function.

explorer to rename multiple files. Perhaps having an option to "open with"
on the Home and photo tabs and choose the app (third party re-namer) will
be helpful until you can instigate it into a BE tab itself.

I can confirm this. Allthough the feature is just intended for one file / folder, this is a good suggestion.

Note: ' Maybe disable it at Beta 2 for multiple files? '

This Renaming stuff could be enourmously enhanced. --> Renaming Multiple files, renaming afer a definded rule, etc.
