%num% doesn't work when choosing "Save image as"
« on: July 15, 2009, 08:10 PM »
I have a Filename Template defined as follows:  "%quickfield% %customdate% (%num%)".  When choosing "Save image as..." from the After-Capture "choice" dialog, the filename appears as e.g. "2009-07-15 (%num%).png".  But if I open the file into ScreenCaptor's main window and choose save, the file name appears as "2009-07-15 (001).png".  Is this a bug?

yep, that's a bug -- i'll try to fix it.
the idea is that %num% is a bit different than other replacements, in that it is autocalculated so that it is a unique filename.
ill make it so the saveas calculates a unique number before opening up save as dialog.
