Different NConvert versions output different filenames

Postby cday » Thu Oct 06, 2016 11:09 am

Different versions of NConvert now produce different output filenames for this code:

Code: Select all
nconvert -xall -dpi 300 -out jpeg -o "%%###.jpg" Multipage.pdf

NConvert 6.05 x32:

Multipage001
Multipage002
Multipage003
Multipage004

NConvert 6.88 x32:

Multipage001-0
Multipage001-1
Multipage001-2
Multipage001-3

Tested using Ghostscript versions 9.15 x32 and 9.20 x32.

Intentionally?

The current filenames are not the expected result which has caused some confusion, and are also not consistent with the documentation in the Help file. :(

Possibly a reason to do with processing multiple, multipage files??

The earlier filenames seem more desirable, the pages of a multipage file are numbered sequentially following the base filename... :D

Testing the new NConvert 6.92 (in the XnView 2.37 Extended/Full download) with this code:

Code: Select all
nconvert -xall -dpi 300 -out jpeg -o "%%###.jpg" Multipage.pdf

Expected output filenames:

Multipage001
Multipage002
Multipage003
Multipage004

Actual output filenames:

001
001002
001002003
001002003004

... :wink:

Thanks, NConvert 6.93 now works as expected... :D :D

As a general point, it would be better if the latest version of NConvert could always be downloaded from the NConvert download page, rather than sometimes only being available in the XnView Classic Extended/Full download... But I do appreciate the problem of maintaining so many software versions with quite frequent updates.
