In trying to use batch rename using replace regex, the before & after preview pane is correct with what I expect. However, when I click the Rename button, the batch rename window goes away, but the files are not renamed.

What's wrong? I don't see any errors on screen or in the Console app logs.

    I forgot: this happens in both PF 6.1.2 & 6.1.3.

    Sorry. It does actually work. It is just that the PF window showing the files does not automatically update. Even closing the folder triangle and opening again does not trigger an update. Using the reload command works.

    I'm afraid the refresh bug is inherent to OS X. Reloading or relaunching Path Finder fixes it.
