-====== How to rename and move your files ====== 
  
-Yes, with DropIt you can also rename and move your files with a single process.\\ 
-You only need to correctly configure an association with ''​Rename''​ action. 
- 
-\\ 
----- 
- 
-===== Example 1 ===== 
-**This is an example of association that adds the image Date Taken at the beginning of my photos and moves them in a defined destination:​** 
- 
-Name: ''​Move and Rename my Photos''​ 
- 
-Rules: ''​*.jpg''​ 
- 
-Action: ''​Rename''​ 
- 
-Destination:​ ''​C:​\Example\Of\Destination\%DateTaken% %FileName%.%FileExt%''​ 
- 
-For more info about abbreviations (the special words between % percentage symbols) you can read:\\ 
-[[howto:​customize_destinations|How to customize destinations]] 
- 
-\\ 
----- 
- 
-===== Example 2 ===== 
-**In this second example the names of my documents are capitalized and separated in folders by their Date Modified:** 
- 
-Name: ''​Capitalize and Sort my Docs''​ 
- 
-Rules: ''​*.doc;​*.docx''​ 
- 
-Action: ''​Rename''​ 
- 
-Destination:​ ''​C:​\MyDocs\%DateModified%\%FileName#​+++%.%FileExt%''​ 
- 
-For more info about abbreviation modifiers (in this case the ''#​+++''​ string) you can read:\\ 
-[[howto:​customize_abbreviations|How to customize abbreviations]] 
- 
-__IMPORTANT NOTE: we found a minor issue that makes not possible to move renamed files in destinations that do not already exist; it will be fixed in next DropIt version 6.2, in the meanwhile associations like this could not work__.
