Request: add 'Seconds - ss' for default Capture filenames

Post by budz45 » Fri Oct 31, 2014 5:02 pm

Hi,

While I was using XnViewMP 0.69 to perform some desktop screen captures I noticed that if I do multiple captures within the same minute time-frame and I save them with the default template filename then there is a filename conflict because the numerical minute within the filename is the same.

What i simply propose is to include support for the 'Seconds - ss' at the end of the filename, so that the full template would be like this:

Code: Select all

Screen-YEAR-MONTH-DAY_HOUR-MINUTE-SECS
and not this:

Code: Select all

Screen-YEAR-MONTH-DAY_HOUR-MINUTE
Very small change to make that would make welcome difference

And this should be for all capture modes (Screen Capture, Import Clipboard, Web Capture)

Thank you. Fixed in XnViewMP 0.75 :) but only fixed for Screen Capture, atm.

Actually Pierre, one last thing on this topic.......Please add the seconds for the "Web Capture" too?

Web Capture needs to show the seconds on it's filename template as currently it does not in 0.75 :(
