[Bug] Dollar signs being turned into numbers during output?

Post by Clonkex » Tue Jul 18, 2017 4:05 am

I had some filenames like this:
Banner 3 - White Photo Blocks - Starting from $4.99.jpg
...and they came out like this:
Banner 3 - White Photo Blocks - Starting from 34.99.jpg
This is just weird and definitely unwanted. I'll rename the images for now but it'd be great if someone could take the time fix this little bug, just for me ;)

right currently # and $ are used for count, so perhaps a way to disable it?

Coming back to this a couple of years later, yes, a way to disable interpreting $ as a special character would be fantastic. I often have to bulk resize images named by the marketing team as things like "8x12 Canvas - RRP $49 - NOW $10a" and it's rather inconvenient that I have to manually rename them to not have the dollar signs.

sorry but i was wrong, $ is not used. Which template for filename do you use?

Actually I just realised I was still on 1.74. I took screenshots of each tab of the program before upgrading to 1.80, and after upgrading I realised what you meant by "template for filename". Using the screenshots I can confirm my filename template was just {filename}.

The good thing is, on 1.80 it seems to work correctly. Finally I can stop removing $ from files!

Thanks for all your work. XnConvert is an incredibly useful program!

EDIT: Also, the changelog link at the bottom of the XnConvert page still links to the 1.74 changelog post on the forum.
