If a simple renaming will work (I haven't used Frame in a long time so
I'm not sure), you can do that as a DOS command if you are using
Windows.

Open the Command Prompt.
Go to the directory where you have the files.
Type ren *.mif *.fm

The files should be renamed.

Hi, all. I am using Replace Text to make global edits to .mif files
(which I exported from FrameMaker).

Now I have a directory full of .mif files, all of which I need to rename
to .fm. I can do it manually in the directory, or I can open them in
Framemaker and save as .fm files . . . but those are slow processes and
I want to do it fast.

I've found a freeware tool called Extension Renamer
(http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/how-to-change-file-extens
ion/) and I may very well use it.

However, I'm slightly reluctant to load up my work computer with
freeware from God knows where, and wonder if anyone uses anything else
or has any other tips.

Suggestions?
