Why can't I rename a customized export?

Why are the export configuration names locked? If I customize one, SF appends "[customized]" but that isn't really helpful.

Also, why is the "Open Recent" menu always cleared out?

     To prevent them from being accidentally overwritten if you decide to save the customization.

     They aren't for me. Those are saved in ScreenFlow Preferences but can be cleared if you chose Clear Menu at the bottom of Open Recent.

    CraigS so not only do you people refuse to add digital db meters, you have now taken away the ability to name our own export customizations? How much worse are you going to make this software?

     Sorry I don't understand this. Of course you can rename the custom export settings. Click on Manage and you have the option to rename. You can also Copy and Rename the Copy and then open that and modifying the export settings. Either/Or. Your choice.

    CraigS That was the issue. I had changed "Web - High" and could not rename it. I see you have to make a copy instead. Why would you allow people to change the settings on one of those presets and click into the name field if they can't, in the end, be changed?

    brett r I think I've got the issue. You can highlight the text entry field before making a copy but you can't actually type in it. If you can't change it there it shouldn't become active. What the program should probably do is automatically put the copy in Custom Presets area so you can change the name.

     

    That would seem to be a UI bug because a non editable field appears to be editable. Certainly report it and note that I verified it.
