File Renaming - Default {seqn} value
« on: January 30, 2008, 12:43:35 PM »
Hi Kirk,

Regarding file renaming in the contact sheet:

After selecting the images I want to rename, I use Ctrl-M to bring up the 'Rename Photos' dialog box.
Next, I click on the 'Set {seqn} variable...' button, then I click on the 'Reset' button.
I click on 'Reset' almost every time I perform a file rename operation.  Therefore, is there a way for me to set the default [seqn] value to '001'?

This would save me a bit of time when performing many renaming operations.
Not a big deal, but would be nice if this were possible.

PM version 4.5.2
Windows XP Professional
Version 2002, Service Pack 2

Thanks and best regards,
Tom

Hold down the Shift key and you'll see the "Set {seqn}" button change to "Reset {seqn}".  Click on it when it reads "Reset" and you'll reset it immediately.

(Mac users would instead hold down Option to do the same thing.)

Thanks, Kirk.  This is better.
