Filename Prefix

Setting filename prefix doesn't seem to work - if i create one, each image overwrites the old one instead of creating new files for each export. Is there a naming convention that is supposed to be used?

The file name prefix setting works for two kind of exports: "Current image" and "Current series". When exporting "All opened series", the folder structure of patient names and study dates is created so the files should not be overwritten.

I might be missing something but when I export "current image" and use a filename prefix, then do it again (without changing the prefix) it overwrites the first one. Is this intended? Do i have to change the filename prefix for each export of "current image"? Typically we are exporting annotated images from the same study but wanted the filename prefix to identify in general what study/patient, etc.

Yes, it seems to be the case that subsequent exports of single images and a prefix set overwrite older files. We will change this behavior in future versions.
