I'd like to be able to change the default copy name when creating a virtual copy. I'd like a virtual copy naming preference setup just like the batch file naming setup.

Example use case:

Set up virtual copy name to be:

_Copy {N}

instead of

Copy {N}

(without the underscore prefix)

So export filenames could be:

{file-name}{copy-name}

That way masters (without copy names) have no extraneous trailing delimiter, but virtual copy name is prefixed with a delimiter (separation character).

Example export:
Master: IMG_12345.jpg
VC: IMG_12345_Copy 1.jpg

If you use this free script I wrote, you can name them however you want:

'Create Virtual Copies'
