{seqn} automatically reset to "001"
« on: November 28, 2021, 05:10:58 AM »
Is there a way to use {seqn} in something like the "Save As..." panel where it automagically resets to zero?  I save folders of images at multiple sizes and use {seqn} as part of the naming.  I always start at "001" with each batch, so I need preset the reset button each time, but invariably, I forget at least once and have to run that batch over again. 

If not, would you consider a new variable of {seqn1} that says to start at 1 regardless of current value of {seqn}

Thanks!

Mike,

No.  But you can quickly reset it by using the "Modifier Key" while clicking on the Sequence button (Shift on Windows, Option on macOS).

If not, would you consider a new variable of {seqn1} that says to start at 1 regardless of current value of {seqn}

Feel free to make a feature request.
