Question Ln,FN to FN LN changes - Does it exist

Didn't their used to an option when editing in bulk to switch from LN,FN to FN LN? I remember using it before but now I cannot find it either in bulk or when editing individually. Has this option been removed?? Or am I having a senility moment??

I think that option is called bulk search & replace. I certainly don't remember there being a button or selection that does it one-shot without user input.

I don't see it in there, and for the record I wasn't looking for anything to do it for me. I vaguely remember being able to select the books and there being a checkbox to use to switch from ln,fn to fn ln but maybe I am remembering this from another program. I definitely know it wasn't in search & replace because I do not use that due to my lack of knowledge with regex.

For clarification: The first line is the search expression, the second is the replacement text, and you'll need to switch the dialog to regex mode.

The Paren's contents are called back reference
the .+ is a wild card
so we have back reference #1 up to the first Comma space
Then we have back reference #2 to the end-of-line , the $

We replace them with \2 \1
The contents of back reference #2 (literal)space contents of back reference #1

Most of it usually is to me also, but in this instance I was able to understand what he was trying to tell me. That of course does not mean I am proficient enough to attempt to create my own regex expression.

I use regex often, but, FWIW, I also vaguely recall a checkbox for swapping FN, LN. There's still one in the Add Books Preferences setup, but I think there was also one in metadata edit before S&R came along. In a sense, it became a tiny subset of the power supplied by S&R, so it became redundant, but only for those who are comfortable with S&R. (OTOH, maybe I'm confused, too, and I'm thinking of the swap author/title checkbox still found in bulk metadata edit).
