Automatically reset import counter for each new import?

Postby DutchieOnABudget » Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:31 pm

Hello All,

Questions that I haven't been able to find answered in the forum so far:

Is there a way to automatically reset import counter for each new import?
I know I can manually reset the counter via the menu, but i would need to do that each time I do an import and I tend to forget this. In the case I do not do this, the counter keeps going up and it creates weird file names.
I import my images as follows (using tokens in ""):
"YY""MM""dd"-"Jobname"-"4-digit counter"
However, I want the counter to start on 0001 each and every time I do an import, without having to do this manually each time. Is there a way to set this as a default for this (and other) counters? :?

Also, how can I use the token "Jobname" that I define in that menu, to also be used in the sub-folder name creation? Right now I have to copy that text string from the token and paste it into the sub-folder naming section, after the other tokens.
Why is the "Jobname" not a standard token that (once filled out or defined in a preset) can be used in other definitions as well? :?

I am not behind my home computer right now, so I cannot test this or add screenshots to make it more clear..... Sorry. :roll:

Thanks in advance, Eric de Jong

No, I am sorry.

The Job Name token is only available for file naming, not subfolder naming.

However, the Sub Name token, which is set in the Process Recipe > File tab, can be used for both the file naming and subfolder naming.

Hi Paul,

Thank you (bedankt... :wink: )

Well, that is a little disappointing that we cannot reset this automatically. I guess I will submit a Feature request ticket soon.

And I will try to use the Sub-name token tonight, to see if I can make that work for me....
I'll be back, if I can't.

Eric.
