Text Exporter file name using Variables
« on: August 07, 2009, 11:19:53 AM »
When using Text Exporter to export photo info from several photos, is there a way to have PM name each export using a variable that I determine? When I export text from Photo1.jpg and Photo2.jpg PM names the text files Photo1.jpg.txt and Photo2.jpg.txt. Can I tell PM to export text and name it using the {object} variable so that the images are named Photo1.txt and Photo2.txt?

Currently using PM 4.6.1 on a Mac v 10.5.7

No, there is no place in the template for you to enter your desired file naming scheme.
