Incrementing Number, would like to have a reset for each new day

Description

Hello,

I was just wondering if there will be a way to have Greenshot "reset" the incrementing number each new day? Right now, I have several folders with the number incrementing from the previous day. I would prefer to have an option to have incrementing number per day or something. Otherwise I love using this program.

Thanks.

If I understood correctly, you are using a a pattern like `${capturetime:d"yyyy-MM-dd"}` to get a new folder for every day? And want all of a day's screenshots to have an incrementing number appended?

If I am right, the feature requested here would fit your needs perfectly, right?
[#632 Add a number if filename already exists](https://sourceforge.net/p/greenshot/feature-requests/632/)

Maybe instead of just appending the number at the end, we could implement something like an increment-num-if-exists placeholder.

Hi Jens,

Sorry I think I may have explained it incorrectly on my end. Currently this is the filename pattern I am using:

.

So for example, on 2-27-2014 I took 12 screenshots, the very first one started with 090205-00418.png. This -00418 is a number that was incremented from the previous day. I would prefer if Greenshot would create -00001 starting each day instead of incrementing from the previous day. I understand this incrementing will prevent duplicates, but I like if this option will become available down-the-road.

I support you with your suggestion Francois. I used for a while WinSnap which does that and I miss this feature in Greenshot (which I prefer now over WinSnap because it is open-source!). In addition, it could be great if we could decide for the number of leading zero (from 0 to 5 zeros for example).
