Known Issue: Batch Renamer displays forward slashes as colons

Issue: When importing files with forward slashes (/) in the title, Batch Renamer displays them as a colons (:). For example, My_Image_5/5/11.jpg is displayed as My_Image_5:5:11.jpg.

In OS X forward slashes separate folders and cannot be used within a filename, so the Finder substitutes forward slashes for colons behind the scenes. Batch Renamer displays the filename exactly as it exists on disk with colons instead of slashes.

Workaround: Find & Replace the colons instead of the slashes.
