Accessing the SEQN variable in the IPTC Stationary pad
« on: September 04, 2013, 10:12:06 AM »
In order to speed up and greatly improve my workflow I would love to have a button in the IPTC stationary pad that accesses the SEQN variable. I know most professional photographers have to use a transref # when filing. The most common place for people to set that would be the IPTC stationary pad, not by checking/unchecking the rename file name in the ingest menu where the only "Change seqn variable" button exists. Otherwise I need to close my IPTC stationary pad while I am filing and go through two menus to get to it to reset it. A button that accesses the variable from the IPTC stationary pad would be amazing, any chance of getting that someday?

Sounds like a good idea to me.  Not sure when we'll implement it though.

Someone I spoke with from PM at PhotoPlus told me that 6 years ago :(
 
I've been waiting ever since.
