Is it possible to use the OUTPUT filename or filenumber in TEXT

Using XnConvert Version 1.80 - windows x64 (Mar 2 2019) - Libformat version 7.26 to batch convert photos

This program is awesome, I just love it !!!

I add text to the bottom right or left of my photos. I see that I can use {filename} or {file number} in the text but I'm renaming the files on the way out. I'm using "GameDay-###" so I get a bunch of altered filed named GameDay-### where ### is 1 to the number of photos processed. I share the files to social media pages and many have asked if I can send them a copy of the image i posted. t would be real helpful if I could print the file number on the photo but since I change the file name I really need something like {Out File Number}.

Does this option exists or is it achievable ?

If not how can I ask for this feature to be added. I realize that there is no way to know what the number is when working on the Actions tab. Perhaps you could show ### (or haw ever many #'s the user puts into the output name) so the user can use it for positioning purposes. - Same for {Out Filename} and or {Out Filename With Ext}

Thank You !!!

I use XnConvert a lot so that would be awesome. I guess I can pass the files twice, Once to just rename the files and then Again to adjust bloom add text including file number and save with overwrite

Can't wait for this one, Hope its easy to implement - going through the files twice is time intensive

I think this link shows that you added it to xnViewMP version .95 - I use standalone XnConvert 1.83 When will it make it to that ?

This is awesome BUT I was looking for {Output Filename Number}

XnViewMP .96 {output Filename} and {Output Filename Ext} work fine. Is it possible to add {Output Filename Number}

Hoping it makes it to xnconvert 1.84 standalone
