Output: rename output when existing (Suggestion)

Post by Peter2 »

The option
When output files already exist: rename

a) unclear:
What will be renamed - the existing file or the newly created one?

b) expandable:
Relating from a) above, there could be two options: "Rename existing" / "rename new"

b) more expandable:
a "Rename to what" would be sophisticated: "Filename_orig", "Filename_old", "new_filename" ...

it's always the ouput filename, original is not modified
