Recalculate valid folder name when creating new projects


I have a default project location setup but I also like to keep my projects sorted by platform in separate folders under the default. When I create a new project the folder name is calculated based on whats already in the default project location

ie ConsoleApplication1, ConsoleApplication2, ConsoleApplication3


if I select a new folder in the save as dialog would it be possible to recalculate the folder name ? In my case its quite likely the names will clash.


Hmm. It should be doing that, already. Fire, or Water?


i’ll have a look.

I read sender.nameFieldStringValue back and it says “App”, but I still see “App5” in the panel, and the URL itself doesn’t change :(.

Heh. Just spotted an issue with the site: Feb '21 is not 3 months later than Dec '21 :slight_smile:

Dec '21” vs “Feb 21

which means “some day in December of 2021” and “February 21 of this year of 2022”. Which is roughly 3 months apart. :wink:
