I would like lightroom to remember my chosen renaming sequence, without me having to dip in and out of Bridge, just to perform this simple task. I don't have the need for import rename, to then delete some files.

I only want to be able to rename the files I'm keeping and for lightroom to rembember my last number saved.

cheers

Select the desired photos and do Library > Rename Photos. Then edit the File Naming template to use the Sequence # token:

This does not work as Lightroom resets the sequence to 1 after every rename. It needs to remember the last sequence number until it's reset by the user. It needs to work like in Bridge.

I second this, this is an absolute NEED. Lightroom needs to keep the sequence number going until it's reset by the user.
