I have to rename hundreds of pdf files monthly, can your program help me to easily remove blank spaces or part of a PDF file name?


You can use "Advanced" script feature in A-PDF Rename (free download here) to remove blanks spaces or characters from PDF files names with ease:

  1. Start the program, click "File->Add PDF Document" or "File->Add Folder" to add PDFs to the file list;
  2. Choose "Advanced" Rename Method, then input script in box, use the "abc def ghij" as example:

    A. Delete blank spaces, use below script:

    newFilename := AnsiReplaceStr(Filename, ' ', '');

    B. Delete part " def", use script below:

    p :Integer;
    p := Pos('' def '', Filename);
    if p > 0 then
    newFilename := LeftStr(Filename, p - 1) + RightStr(Filename, Pos(ReverseString('' def ''), ReverseString(Filename)) - 1);

  3. Run the script and preview the effect of renaming in the list, then click "Rename" button to rename all listed files.
