Incorrect renaming
« on: April 23, 2020, 02:27:11 AM »
I am running Photo Mechanic version 5, build  19749 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

Files from Canon 1DX Mark III. Initial filename is AX0I0002.CR3 etc
Renaming string: BOYKO_200422_{fnum}

Files are renamed correctly: AX0I0020.CR3 becomes BOYKO_200422_0020.CR3 and so on, however every file that I had color rated in Photo Mechanic was renamed incorrectly and AX0I0004.CR3 became BOYKO_200422_4.CR3, file AX0I0086.CR3 became BOYKO_200422_86.CR3 - the number are not in 4-digit format anymore.

I understand my ability to use {filenamebase:-4} var, but will appreciate if the {fnum} issue is fixed.

We are no longer providing updates to Photo Mechanic 5.  If we can reproduce that problem in Photo Mechanic 6, we'll fix it in Photo Mechanic 6.  We don't have the resources to continue maintaining the older editions of our software.
