Two feature requests. (rename + s&r enhancement)

Hi, been using Sigil for quite a while, but just now registered to the forum.
I have two feature requests at moment (more later)

Would it possible to batch rename several selected files in the book-browser window.
E.G.
select several files then right-click, have an option - rename all, which then opens a string for the rename and one with a digit, then renames the files in order. So if given 'Chapter' and '4' the files would be renamed 'Chapter4.html' 'Chapter5.html' 'Chapter6.html' 'Chapter7.html' etc.

The second request is to have in the search/replace dialog box, to also have an
'insert symbol' button, which allows to insert for example CR+LF, or the regex commands for a single character or digit etc. , which would make regex s&r easier.

Perhaps the remane could count in Roman Numerals.

I'm not a fan of this idea. It's for a very specific use case and it's not intuitive.

I've been thinking about that feature for a while. It's fairly common in search dialogs than support regexes. Add it to the tracker so I don't forget.

Actually, I have been wanting a variation of #1 to "clean-up" really long
file manes (some created by Calibre conversions)
Rename selected files with auto sequence: In my example I want the name prefix: "c"
followed by 2 digits (pad 0)
start: 2

for the selected (see mock-up) files.
(many ripping tools have this built in to override the default track naming:track_01...)

Yep, that's the sort of thing i would like it for, and also after splitting a lot of chapters, would then be a better list, if able to easily rename all files consecutively

Related to this would be to batch-rename sections to their semantic names -- ie: Cover, Title Page, Colophon, etc.
