You’re right. I should have thought of that. Finding the dot/period was the way I parsed file names back in DOS 2.x days. I can replace dots with dashes, but it’s inconvenience to have to do this every time I use Gigapixel. Dots in dates is a pretty common practice.
Can this easily be fixed in the programme? The full file name, minus an Gigapixel-added suffix, is readily available, since the string with written to the screen once the file is loaded. Reading backwards to the first dot plus one more character will give you the position to add a suffix, won’t it?
Come to think of it, I’ve run into the same stripping problem with a few other programmes, too.
