Default Filename for Scanning (TWAIN/WIA)

Post by EuM_Expert »

When scanning, xnViewMP allocates a filename something like Scan-YYYY-MM-HH-mm, i.e. the minute gives the filename's max resolution.
If one scans 2 or more files in the same minute then a filename conflict arises when saving the files.
For my mode of occasional scanning this is really tedious.
Instead of saving all files at once, I have conflicts for the same filename.
Tried google and searched the settings for an option to change this default filename setting but did not find anything.
If for example the seconds would be added to the filename template then this problem would not appear.

Any hint?
