The renaming is just for the ("emergency") case that the output file exists, and this is checked during execution, not beforehand.klumy wrote:if you activate the overwrite -> rename option in Batch convert, there should be a preview function, so you can see, how the filename will looks like
I think a full preview would be too complicated and would not really help. Perhaps XnView could check beforehand and show a message box, if there will be name clashes during execution. Then the user would be prepared and may cancel operation before even starting.
Currently, you might get a message box in the middle of the operation and canceling will leave all the files already converted around. This is not os good and the check beforehand would avoid this.
