            Bug ID: 16790
           Summary: Support for custom bulk renamer application
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: cook60020tmp at mail.ru
  Target Milestone: 1.8.13

When doing mass renaming, just hitting F2 with multiple selected files,
different app could be opened besides just xfce'w own bulk renamer. For exact
example, there is renameutils: https://www.nongnu.org/renameutils , which I
discovered while searhing some time ago for something to enable rename workflow
similar to emacs dired mode (just move cursor between items of filelist in text
buffer and edit all at once). Though I rarely use it, since I rarely use bulk
renaming at all).

Option to configure it could present in Preferred applications (Settings
Manager), besides of fm settings. In my case I had to create custom action for
maximum file scope, with this exec line: qmv -e mousepad -f do %F

I'm not sure is there any more worthy choice for such app class.
