Global variables in split file names?

Postby DFH » Wed Feb 06, 2013 12:25 am

It would be a useful enhancement if the syntax for split output filter file names could include a global variable,
especially if this could be a value obtained using the capture text filter.

I don't want the value as part of the file extension, but as part of the main file name, just after the incremented numerical value.

Hi David,

According to the help file you can, but the right-click menu does not reflect this. I will fix this.

Is it just the missing option in the context menu?

Or is the functionality not working too?

And are there any "gotchas" ?

Hi David,

Have had no time to test this yet, but it looks like it is just missing from the menu. The code looks fine.
