OS X Technologies :: Renaming Pdf Files Based On Internal Content?

Apr 27, 2012

I work for a company that has thousands of E-tickets coming in daily, weekly, monthly, etc..These tickets come in bafhakfbaifh.pdf and we have to manually rename them or print them all out and then sort through them and put them in order.What I would like to do is:

1. Split any pdf's that have more than one page or "ticket" in my case. I know how to do this with automator easily, but I'd love to keep it all in one program.

2. Search the file for Event Name (i.e. Madonna)

3. Search the file for Date of event (August 12, 2012)

4. Search the file for Section, Row, Seat (124 3 12)

5. Rename the file based on content found (Madonna August 12 2012 124 3 12.pdf)

6. Move from original download folder to organized folders based on artist/team.

7. Automatically print in alphabetical or some sort of designated order.

So far, I found a PC program called A-PDF rename, but it is not automated enough to be practical. Hazel is awesome at OCRing the pdf and moving from folder to folder, but does not do enough.

OS X Technologies :: Add The Correct Extension Based On The File Type?

Apr 6, 2012

I have a set of photos I"d like to import into iPhoto, but iPhoto doesn't recognize them because they don't have file extensions. Could someone give me a script that will look at each file in a specific folder, check to see if an extension is present, and if not, add the correct extension based on the file type?

ITunes For Mac :: NO Permanent Content On That Internal Drive

Jun 4, 2014

My primary workstation is now a New MacPro (late 12013) so the internal drive is too small to store my iTunes Library. I have backed up the main iTunes library from my laptop to an external drive. But I will now be working mostly at the NMP -which is ethernet wired (as I often upload/dowwnload extremely large files)  

I would like to designate the external drive as the main repository for the iTunes Library for the NMP. I see that many of my albums already reside in the iTunes Library on the internal drive for the NMP. I would like to free up that storage space and have NO permanent content on that internal drive. 

I think that using the REMOTE APP is intended for WIRELESS usage. So, ideally (while working) I would prefer to access iTunes app from the NMP (which is also wired to a sound system) and choose CONTENT from the external drive. So how do I clear the internal drive of all iTunes content and use the external drive exclusively?

OS X :: Renaming Files In ITunes?

Apr 18, 2009

I've been removing a bunch of bloat from the iTunes library, and one of the things I did was transcode my 10 GB or so of lossless audio to 256 kbps VBR, then delete the lossless files. The problem is that since the transcode creates new copies of the audio files, I ended up with

10 The Mariner's Revenge Song.m4a

10 The Mariner's Revenge Song 1.m4a

Once the transcode was complete, I deleted all of the original lossless files from library and my computer, but I can't get rid of the 1 on the end of the remaining filenames. I seem to remember File -> Library -> Consolidate Library to have worked on an earlier version of iTunes, but it doesn't seem to do anything now. My library is set to keep things organized, but that doesn't seem to be working for files already in the library.

OS X :: Files Automatically Renaming Themselves

May 30, 2010

I've been having this problem for a while now on my iMac (OSX 10.6.3) where a file would just rename itself into something like "FULLM~20.MKV" after I rename a different file within the same folder.

It's occurred in several folders and is really annoying because I don't know what the original filenames are and messes up my organization.

I took note of some occurrences below. If I recall correctly, trying to fix the messed up filename sometimes works but it eventually gets messed up again. It's not limited to video files only, I've seen it happen to a jpg at least once.

Applications :: Batch Renaming Files In OSX?

Mar 3, 2004

I've got a whole bunch of photos in various subfolders. Some of these photos have the same relative name (ie same file name but in different folders).

I would like to rename all these files like 000001.ext, 000002.ext etc, independently of file location so I can copy all the files back to one single folder (I can handle that bit in Terminal). There are many sub-folders so I need something recursive.

I've tried Renamer4Mac, but it isn't recursive. Does anyone know of a different app that would work, or even a terminal command/script/binary that would do the trick?

OS X :: Can Automate Renaming Files And How To Stop

Mar 27, 2009

I'm in the process of importing loads of DVDs using HandBrake to have on Apple TV.

But all the files read a bit like this: "FUTURAMA_DISC_1-1" etc etc. and so I'm renaming them "Futurama 1.1, Futurama 1.2" etc. Is there a way of automating this rather dull process?

Also, in finder, if I select a file and hit return to highlight the text, it often deselects itself whilst I'm typing which is becoming infuriating. Sometimes it'll deselect itself half a dozen times before it stays selected and let's me rename the file. It feels like I'm on a Windows PC with such an annoying glitch!

OS X :: How To Automate Renaming Of Files After Importing

Jan 2, 2010

We got a Flip video camera for Christmas, and I'm trying to find a way to easily import the videos into a specific folder on my MBP.

I'm sure there's an automator action or folder action to do this, but I don't even know where to begin for that.

What I want to do is be able to drop the files from the Flip into a specific folder, but I want those files to be automatically renamed into a sequential order once they are dropped in. As it stands, the files are named VID00001, VID00002, etc., and when those are dragged and dropped into a folder on the HDD, the retain that numbering. They are erased from the camera, and the renaming starts all over again.

What I want to do is to be able to drop those new files from the camera into the same folder, and have the numbering pick up at 00003, 00004, etc.

Applications :: Renaming Files Sequentially By Containing - Folder's Name

Apr 11, 2009

Dear fellow Applephiles, I'm looking for a fast, efficient way (via an Automator Workflow for example) to do the following: Rename sequentially several files in certain folders so that their names end up being: "folder_name xx" e.g. I have 2 folders called Anne's Birthday, Berlin Vacation, and 2008 Prom with several JPEGs called "DSCxxxxxx" within them.

I want the files within each folder to be named: "Anne's Birthday 1", "Anne's Birthday 2", "Anne's Birthday 3", etc. instead of "DSCxxxxxx","Berlin Vacation 1", "Berlin Vacation 2", "Berlin Vacation 3", etc. and "2008 Prom 1", "2008 Prom 2", "2008 Prom 3", etc. and thus for each respective folder. By using a workflow.I truly hope it's just my being slow with Automator (or Mac OS X in general) the obstacle for accomplishing this.

OS X :: Auto Renaming Files When Duplicate Exists?

May 23, 2009

I use Windows at work and something I really like about it is that Windows will automatically rename a file if another one exists with the same name. For example if there is a file on your desktop called somefile.doc and you download or copy another file with the same name to your desktop it will automatically rename the new file to somefile(1).doc, allowing the 2 files to co-exist without you having to manually change either name. Is there a way to make OSX do this automatically?

Applications :: ITunes Will Not Find Files After Renaming

Feb 12, 2010

In iTunes I manage my music manually. Sometimes I need to change a song's file name because something was spelled incorrectly. To change a song's file name I rename it in Finder. iTunes is running the background. Now here's the catch: After renaming a file I check whether iTunes detected its new location (CMD+I for "Get Info"). Mostly iTunes DOES recognize the new file path, but sometimes it doesn't. What helps iTunes detecting the new location? I really can't see a pattern in iTunes' behavior.

Safari :: How To Stop Renaming Download Files

May 16, 2012

If I download a hjsplit file (a file split into multiple, consecutive parts .001, .002, .003, etc for recombination by the hjsplit program) safari tries to be clever, and adds a file extension of the file type, so instead of getting 3 files called: 




I get something like 




Presumably the website tells safari the filetype, but usually a browser allows me to override mime types like this.  In firefox  files are not renamed (so I know it is theoretically possible), whereas in safai they are, and therefore are no use to the hjsplit program until I manually rename them. 

I think this is a webkit thing, since chrome does the same thing, whereas gecko browsers like firefox and camino do not.

Does anyone know of any that I should know about? This would be my first mac so I don't know the deal with them. Should I just stick with a windows pc?

Applications :: Automator To Delete Files Based On Date

Apr 27, 2010

I'm new to the Mac world but have been successful in creating a few Automator workflows to simplify certain tasks. However, I'm stuck on the flowing; I'd like to create a workflow that searches a particular folder for items created 30 days before today's date and the delete them. I'm assuming I need to create a variable of today's date and then subtract 30 days from it and so on. Haven't been able to figure this out.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Possible To Use Automator To Move Files Based On The File Name?

Jun 21, 2012

I'm kind of new to Automator and I'm trying to come up with a sequence that will severely save me a few hours a day moving files from two larger folders into smaller folders. Basically the setup is that I have two folders, one constantly being populated with images and the other with video files. They each have file names starting with a two digit number (i.e. 12, 11, 10...) or "BG" and then a two digit number (i.e. BG12, BG11, BG10...) with the digits corresponding to a year. Essentially, I'd need to move the files into folders corresponding to the year (i.e. files starting with BG12 and 12 would be moved to 2012, files starting with BG11 and 11 would be moved to 2011, etc). As it stands now, I've only been able to get the 2012 folder populated.
