Add window title to custom naming
« on: November 10, 2020, 10:58 AM »
Organization by application exe name is nice, but I'd really like to add more context to the filename.  Is it possible to add the window title to the file naming patterns?  Ultimately it is to help name by the browser tab name, which seems to be passed along in window title. 

I'm looking at autohokey for inspiration  autoscreenshot.jpgAdd window title to custom naming

I was thinking the same thing. I think being able to incorporate more context into the filename as well.   Much depends on the use case, but if I wanted to filter/find an image from a specific email, document, or webpage- having that in the filename would be great.

this would be easy to add; putting it on todo list.

Bomblemonk,
I just wanted to make sure you saw that window title has been added to a new beta of the app.  It was posted in this thread: "Topic: Automatic ScreenShotter Thoughts"

New beta with %winTitle field you can use:
Beta download of v1.20.01:

Been a while since I updated my software so I'm a little rusty and thought I'd try a quick one-feature beta release.  Let me know if the new %winTitle does what you want/expect.
