      Yes it does. Update to newest version in the App Store. It does preview PDFs.

    Hi. If I have a lot of existing files named eg: “20180727 Cleaner $85.00.pdf”, can your software batch rename them to add a dash between the dates so that the file name becomes “2018-07-27 Cleaner $85.00.pdf”?

      No, not right now. But you can run this script:

      #!/bin/bash
      ## example usage:
      ## open Terminal
      ## 1. cd to folder with your 20180726 Cleaner $85.00.pdf files
      ## 2. copy renamer.sh to that folder
      ## 3. run bash ./renamer.sh *.pdf
      ##

      FILES=`ls *.pdf`

      find . -depth 1 -iname "*.pdf" | while read f
      do
      echo " - Processing file: \"$f\""
      # take action on each file. $f store current file name

      str_date=${f:0:10};
      str_rest=${f:10:99};

      date_yyyy=${str_date:2:4}
      date_mm=${str_date:6:2}
      date_dd=${str_date:8:2}

      #echo $str_date;
      #echo $str_rest;

      new_file_name="$date_yyyy-$date_mm-$date_dd$str_rest";

      echo "- new file:$new_file_name";

      mv "$f" "$new_file_name";

      done

      ## EOF.
