Yeah... and would you have the ability to toggle from spaces to _'s? In other words, if I have a bunch of files that *started out* with the _'s everywhere and I want to convert them all to spaces, could I do that too?

This would be very effective as a Ctrl-R addition I think.

I've also always wanted the ability to rename files with incrementing values. For instance: doing a Ctrl-R and entering *[###].* would rename

AUTOEXEC.BAT
AUTOEXEC.BAT

to

AUTOEXEC001.BAT
AUTOEXEC002.BAT

and entering: *.??[#,0,2] would rename

AUTOEXEC.BAT
AUTOEXEC.BAT

to

AUTOEXEC.BA0
AUTOEXEC.BA2

Agreed. I'd also like to see a directory-level option that allows us to use Shift-Number to skip down to a directory name that begins with a number. As Shift-X would jump to c:\XTGOLD, Shift-3 should jump to c:\3dgames.
