Move files and directories using the default text editor to define the filenames. More information:

  • Move a single file (open an editor with the source filename on the left and the target filename on the right):

qmv {{source_file}}

  • Move multiple JPG files:

qmv {{*.jpg}}

  • Move multiple directories:

qmv -d {{path/to/directory1}} {{path/to/directory2}} {{path/to/directory3}}

  • Move all files and directories inside a directory:

qmv --recursive {{path/to/directory}}

  • Move files, but swap the positions of the source and the target filenames in the editor:

qmv --option swap {{*.jpg}}

  • Rename all files and folders in the current directory, but show only target filenames in the editor (you can think of it as a kind of simple mode):

qmv --format=do .
