Feature Request: Prefix search name to filename

Post by ataraxia » 19 Aug 2020, 17:32

In the "Naming" section of Properties it would be useful to have an option "Add Search Name as prefix (or suffix) in the filename"

This would provide another clue as to the source of a file and could be regarded as a sort of "micro-category".

Perhaps this could be carried a step further by introducing variable names to the "Add the following prefix (or suffix) to the filename" option. For example: %search, %project, %category,%date = date (as YEAR-MON-DAY HOUR-MIN-SEC-MILSEC), etc.

One of these variables might add a constant such as %# which simply adds a # to the filename. For example, "%#%search" would prefix "#my search name" to the filename to indicate it is an addition created by EPF.

If you want to go really crazy with this, you could add some EXIF metadata as these filename variables. Picture dimensions would be a good place to start.

Just some thoughts....

OK, thanks. I'll think about it.
