macOS Finder, I can rename a file or directory by pressing
RET and the current value becomes the default for the new file name. This helps if I make a small change, such as adding a date at the beginning of the filename.
In Emacs with dired, I can rename with
R but I don't have the previous value as the default, so I auto-complete it. This becomes dangerous if I make a mistake in the auto-completion and overwrite another file.
Can Emacs dired rename files incrementally as in the Finder?
