Question about renaming
« on: March 13, 2018, 01:12:58 PM »
I just started using Photomechanic and I"m stumped with renaming.  I set it up as 2018_03_04_xxxxxxx-{seqn} say and {seqn} is 001 but when I rename I get 2018_03_04_xxxxxx-00101 then 00201 then 00301  how do I get rid of that 01 after the first significant digit?

Thank you in advance.

Renaming resolution: Set options for what Photo Mechanic should do when it tries to save a file to a folder and there is an identically named file already present at the destination. This policy applies to all renaming operations. You can choose to append a letter, or a single or double digit number, when needed. The best option here is probably ‘Append Digits when needed (01,02 etc.)’. This option makes it easy to see at a glance when there were two files with the same name since the new file name will be longer and easy to spot.

Choose the "Append Digits when needed (01,02 etc.)" option.
