Append letter when needed - please ad a separator
« on: January 08, 2020, 03:12:51 PM »
Hi,
the function "append letter when needed" is great.
Is there a chance to ad a separator like "_" or something to it. This would help a lot.
And it would be nice to have "always append letter" as well. It is there for the digits.
Thanks.
Best.
F.

No, there is no way to prepend a separator.  Renaming collisions are supposed to be a rare occurrence.  What is causing your operations to try to put a file in the same place as another with the same name?

If I have more than one picture for one second I get a clash.
I could use subseconds - but do not like this - and not all my cameras support this.
I want my filenames like this:
YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS_Name_Model
If I get more pictures for one second it would be nice to get them as
..._A
..._B
..._C

But actually I can ad the seperator in the renaming proces itself - stupid that I did not think about this...

Thanks.

So, I solved the seperator....
How about this:
It would be nice to have "always append letter" as well. It is there for the digits???

Thanks.
