silent failure in File Name Pattern Settings using unequal number of tokens



  • let's say you have tokens
    alt text

    and you use a preset such as

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    
    <settings Separator="_">
      <panel Property="Ignore Token" DataType="Ignored" Items="" Values=""/>
      <panel Property="Ignore Token" DataType="Ignored" Items="" Values=""/>
      <panel Property="Single Key" DataType="Number" Items="" Values=""/>
      <panel Property="RR Group" DataType="Custom" Items="rr1 rr2 rr3 rr4"
             Values="1 2 3 4"/>
    </settings>
    

    the above fails to set File Name Pattern Settings.

    this does not fail:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    
    <settings Separator="_">
      <panel Property="Ignore Token" DataType="Ignored" Items="" Values=""/>
      <panel Property="Ignore Token" DataType="Ignored" Items="" Values=""/>
      <panel Property="Single Key" DataType="Number" Items="" Values=""/>
    </settings>
    

    Just because there are different number of token entries does not mean you shouldn't set the settings. We shouldn't have to have a setting for every number of possible tokens.



  • Yes that is reasonable. You'll get a warning that the token amount is not matching but if you press OK it will use what's there.



  • All right this is fixed (along with some other minor improvements of this dialog)
