[Solved] {Filename Number} overwrite existing files ..

Post by Peter2 » Thu Feb 10, 2011 9:20 am

EDIT:
Solved: Forgot the right settings ..


My files have names like "123-001", 123-002, 124-001, ...

The "save as feature" {Filename Number} seem to extract the last occurrence of a number - and "001" from 124-001 overwrites 001 from 123-001.
Right? Bug or feature?

Yes, but recurring numbers should not be overwritten.

:?: Maybe some confusion ...

- You have "draft-001.tif" and "test-001.tif" in one folder.
- You convert them to PDF with {Filename Number}

What to do?
a) the software creates two times 001.pdf, but only one "001.pdf" stays in the folder
b) the software creates the first 001.pdf, then realizes that already a 001.pdf exist and does something (ask the user or uses the default settings)
c) the user is smart enough to realize that the selected settings will make trouble and selects another setting.

I would prefer solution b).

Do you have changed the overwrite setting?
