Changing the file name rules?

Hello. I went to the FAQ and looked and I didn't come across an answer for this.

Is there away to change the way Calibre names files?

Currently it is doing this:

Book-author (F L).pdf

I'd like it to do this:

Author (L, F) - Book name.pdf

And, if it is possible to modify this can someone point me to the instructions...as well as let me know if I can then get it to rename all 2,134 pdf files I have.

Thanks!

See this thread if you're talking about the Calibre library.

Well, you can change the filename and path for saving to disk and sending to device. See the relevant entries in the preferences.
