I would find it very helpful if you could use the timestamp as file name.

Date: YEARMONTHDAYHOURMINUTESSECONDS are not optimal

I utilise the mmss component. Please don't lose it.

OK, so what do you suggest instead please?

To me, the default 2019-01-04_09-29-14 is the optimal time stamp that will prevent duplicates.  It would be nice if the hour/minute/second separators  were colons, but those are disallowed by Windows

I believe you are already able to use the ability to configure a preset to achieve that.



Cheers... Rick :)

I can't find this in either 'Capture Preferences' or 'Editor Preferences.' Using SnagIt 2019.

That's because it's a preset setting:

I guess that means you don't get to edit the screenshot before it's saved?  What say you Monsieur Stone?

Thanks Paul. I didn't think to look in 'Presets.'

To be fair, you don't just "look there". What needs to happen is that you create one and save it. Then use it later. ;)

It's slightly odd that it's a preset though isn't it?  I mean, if you have a preferred time stamp format, wouldn't it be your preference EVERYWHERE?  That's why I didn't remember it was a preset option.  Editor > Preferences is SO the place you would expect to find that setting.

Eine Antwort schreibenTimestamp - UNIX Timestamp  "1546776797"  today's date (date/time) this would be optimal!
