File Name Specificaiton Capability Needs to Come Back to the Program to Give Options.

Pages: 1

Why can't I specify the name of the file like on the earlier versions?  The long file name the new version gives sucks and I can find no option anywhere, like in the previous versions, where I can make the date and time in a file name when I save one.  You need to put that file naming capability back in the version that I'm using (free one for now) or it becomes much less useful and attractive than before.  I HATE THE LONG FILE NAMES THAT ARE SAVED BY DEFAULT!

Plugin version  FireShot 0.98.70
MS Windows 8
Firefox latest version
no bug, just ability to specify names of files to be saved is no longer available.

The file name template feature was not affected by this update. It's still available in the FireShot's preferences.

Excuse me, no it's not.  I've looked several times.  I would appreciate you showing me exactly how to access that feature because it doesn't show up on any tabs in my preferences window.  The Editor Settings button in inactive, meaning nothing happens when it's clicked.  There is nothing I can find that leads me to the file renaming feature that used to be in this program.

I've tried to put the three screen captures of the three different tabs in the preference window to show you that there isn't anything I can see that leads to the file renaming feature.  I'm not sure if these captures will come through as I can't cut and paste the image from my hard drive but maybe the path above will somehow capture them when I reply.

They obviously didn't transmit so let me know your email and I can show you what I see when I open the preferences window.  Thank you for your help.

I sent the screen shots to you.

Responded you by email and putting the explanation below for the future reference:

There are 2 major versions of FireShot: FireShot Lite and advanced version of FireShot.

FireShot Lite provides just basic functions like capturing and saving to image/PDFor putting to clipboard or printing.

The advanced version includes FireShot and FireShot Pro, these products provide more functionality such as uploading, advanced printing, better capturing and saving to different formats and even editing screenshots.

For FireShot Lite you can open Preferences and setup the template.

The advanced version of FireShot needs additional step to configure this template:

Ok, but this still doesn't tell me how to get to the template.  I evidently have Fireshot Lite and so there is nothing that is clear about how to get to the template editing part.  In addition, the "Press To Open Editor Settings..." button doesn't work.  I can click on it all I want to but nothing happens.  It's dead.  I'm assuming the template setup part is in the Editor Settings?  If that's correct.  There is no way to get to it if the button is non-functional as mine is.

No, you have the Advanced version of FireShot, but the button is not working for you because of the bug. You can open this window from the Editor.
