Rename It 2.1.0
Renames selected Nodes in order of selection and renames/reorder attributes

Rename Nodes:

The renaming of nodes is based off the current selection. There are three parts to the "text string" "string-prefix", "variable" and "string-suffix". The "text string" will be used for the renaming of nodes based off the following options.
Replace - replaces the current name with the text string
Prefix - add the text string to the beginning of the current name
Suffix - add the text string to the end of the current name

Rename Nodes/Rename and Reorder Attributes

The variable will increment for each node in the selection. The following options are available [a-z], [A-Z], [0-9], and [none]. The start letter can be change with the drop down and the number with the intField. When using the [a-z] or [A-Z] feature on selections that is greater then 26 will add another increnter letter to the main letter. For example: 27th node in the selection is "ba", 28 is "bb", 1 is "aa" and 192 is "hj" with a limit of 676 nodes. When in the [0-9] mode, RMC over the inField will open a menu to enable padding up to 5 zeros. The feature "Auto Padding", will choose the correct padding for you each time you reName It.

Search Replace:
Maya's search and replace feature has been added for easier accessibilty. A new feature has been added called "Swap", this is allow renaming of 2 nodes to have the second node's name created based off the first selection. For example: Search for "lf", replace with "rt", the first selected nodes is named "lf_armCTRL". The second node will be named "rt_armCTRL".

Renaming and Reorder Attributes:
All keyable attributes are added to the textScrollList (Non-keyable attributes can be added with the check box), when a node is loaded. By using the "up" and "down" buttons will reorder the attributes. Changing the "Long Name" will perserve the current order the attributes are in.
