|Summary||0001639: Autosave [filename] erroneously includes file extension|
In the autosave settings, the claim is that
but in reality, my autosave filenames look more like
So it appears that
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Has the bug occurred in previous versions?||yes|
|Tested code revision (in case you know it)|
Also -- is the filename template supposed to be user-editable?
I'd rather say it's maybe a communication issue of the template display than an implementation issue. Due to how autosave versioning management works, the full filename needs to come first, as the cleanup code essentially just iterates over all
I'd rather change the example filename shown in the UI than changing the cleanup logic.
It probably maybe was the intention some 16-17 years ago to allow for that, but no, the template is fixed and never was editable.
Slight correction -- I believe it's manually-initiated backup, rather than periodic autosaves, where I'm seeing this issue.
If you refer to the "create backup copy when saving module", that always creates a backup by replacing the module file extension with
Nope, I guess manually-initiated backups only ever swap the extension out for
There is no automatic housekeeping of
True, but one file's backup could overwrite the other file's backup, which might be bad. :shrug:
Well, it's important to keep in mind that the features work quite differently:
Autosaves, however, accumulate over a longer period of time, and depending on settings will all be saved in one central folder. Because of that, being able to tell the source files apart is a bit more relevant. But in the end, extending the backup mechanism to always just append
