What Variables can be used to rename files?
« on: September 12, 2018, 06:54:53 AM »
I have searched through forum and manual and have not found the answer.
I know I can rename files by such variables as {year4} and {keywords}, but I can't rename using the variables {caption} or {title}. Are there only certain variables that can be used for renaming? I know it's odd to want to rename by title or caption, but it's a workaround for another separate issue!
OS: Windows 10
PM version: V5 build 19695

Thank you.

Strange: I can rename just fine using the {caption} variable (even if it is a multiline caption; the newlines are simply replaced with a dash)...
