    Quick saving copies via photo's edit function no longer possible ?


    has anyone else noticed QOL features being removed from certain programs now.. the biggest example for me being the quick saving of edited photos to include a auto generated prefix at the end of the file name for quicker saving rather than having to manually type into the file name etc ?

    So when editing a photo [Edit&Create > Edit] and going to save a copy. it no longer adds the (2) prefix at the end of the file name just before the file extension

    So for example:


    TestExamplePhoto.png

    To

    TestExamplePhoto(2).png

    if anyone knows how to correct this issue and can shed light on the matter it would be greatly appretiated. i find myself editing photos extremely frequently through out the week and this will cut down on time fumbling in trying to get the filename not to conflict with the original filename and it constantly asking me if i want to replace the current file when saving a copy!

    im running 20H2 - 19042.804

    And this only started happening after upgrading my boot SSD from a 120 to 240gb and fresh installing of windows on that drive (no clone or nothing)

    Sounds like a setting in the image editing software that's being use.

    So what's happening to the edited image result filename now? Is the edited image overwriting the original (thus retaining the original filename)? Is the edited image being saved in a different folder (hence there's no need to (re)name the file with a number suffix)?

    pretty much when i edit a photo or picture now and then click save copy it will just retain the original file name and clicking yes to confirm would bring up a prompt window to override the original file.
    essentially before all i had to do was edit the picture. then click save copy then done and that would be it.. it auto added the (2) at the end of the original file name thus it would save a copy and retain the orignal file.

    ive tried to the best of my knowledge to find something regarding this in the photo's settings but no luck sadly.
