Improve automatic naming of saved clipboard images

Postby larsen » Mon Apr 11, 2016 2:48 pm

Hello,

after having pasted something from the clipboard, when you save the imge the default is to use "Clipboard-1.png" while increasing the number for any following images. Though, this only works as long as XnView is not restarted.

This could be improved so XnView checks for any existing "Clipboard-#.png" images that collide with the current increment. So, if there already are "Clipboard-1.png" and "Clipboard-2.png", XnView should automatically propose "Clipboard-3.png" as the file name.

What is the workflow in that case? Like this?
- XnView checks which path to use (remembered last path)
- Open a file dialog to let the user specify a file name and proposes "Clipboard-1.png" (for the first image to be saved in the current XnView session)

Then, before opening the file dialog, it should be possible to check for any "Clipboard-*.png" files (or whatever extension) and get the highest number of already existing files, shouldn't it?

In this case the behavior will be for all images not yet saved?
