Variable from computer
« on: October 05, 2009, 09:23:58 AM »
My colleagues and I use PM 4.5.4 on a PC under WIndows XP.
Is there any way that a PM variable can gather up some information about either the user of the machine (perhaps the ID of the logged-on user) or the folder name in which the picture is when it is edited ? Could it truncate either ?
Many thanks,

There is no variable for the "user" (yet), if you want it, I suggest you make this a feature request. Perhaps Kirk et al, will then implement it.

The name of the folder (or name of the contact sheet) of the file can be determined with the variable {folder}. The full path with {folderpath}. You can use all available string manipulations (eg. {folder:6} etc.) on these variables.

Does this answer your question?
