Why does the print module not assume the file name when "printing to JPEG file"? If this is "as designed" then it's a rather annoying flaw when you have to export a project of for example: 30 8x10 prints some with additional borders ( aka, whitespace, extra canvas, etc. something regular export cant do, which will be the subject of the next question I post).
I will have to "show in explorer"/copy/then paste each file name into each respective file to be saved. This is tedious and prone to human error.
Or am I not using it correctly?
The purpose of Print to JPEG is getting output to send to labs. The fact that we all use it to create layouts is a secondary benefit.
I found a workaround to the above problem, which works so long as the target directory is not too cluttered. I just use the export function to generate all the needed file names beforehand. This is usually best done to a temporary scratch directory. Then as I print each one to file, use the existing file's appearance in the print-to-file output dialog to name the file without having to retype it. Simply double clicking the existing file will assume the name and ask if you want to replace. I answer "yes" to replace. Each file still has to be done one-by-one, and you have to keep the names straight, but at least I never have to retype the name.
