I have files that I would like to rename in bulk but that are already in playlists under their old filename. I know that I can rename a single file via the tag editor, and that MB will update the library and the playlists won't be broken. But I don't see any way to do this for multiple files.

What would be great is if MB could send items to Bulk Rename utility and update all successful renames. But until then, is there any way to rename outside of MB and not break playlists?

Why not just use the File Organization tools that are built-in?  This is exactly what they're for.

Thanks for reminding me of the file reorganization options. I had used it early on but not recently.
