Available tags are as follows:

<FileNameNoDotExt> Name of the current file without the .extension

<FileExtNoDot> Extension of the current file without the name or dot

<FilePathNoEndSlash> Path of the current file without the terminating back-slash
For example: C:\New Folder

<search-text> Current search text. This may vary if you are using wildcards. For example, if the search phrase ??t finds text "hat" then "hat" is the current search text.

The search-text tag can only be used as part of the replace phrase.

When the operation starts, the above tags will be replaced with the corresponding information for each file.
