Sequence dialog
« on: May 13, 2007, 05:23:38 PM »
In the Set Sequence Variable dialog, when you click the dropdown arrow to save the current setting, it does not remember it.  I'd like to be able to add xxx01, xxx001, xxx0001 to make it easy to add the required number of zeros for the size of the job, but it doesn't seem to work.  The add / remove option in the menu always defaults back to whatever is currently in the dialog.  It has been like this for as many versions as I can remember but I just haven't got around to mentioning it before.  Or am I missing something about it's use?

Alternatively, could you add an option to make PM automatically pad the sequence with the correct number of zeros according to the number of photos being renamed?

It is working correctly, but I can see how your need would be served by making a simple change to the dialog.

You should see this addition in the 4.5.1 final version.

Great, thanks! :)  Maybe I should have mentioned it years ago!
