When a virtual copy is created, it takes in the webgallery the number, for example 8300_1 but when it is exported from the library it takes the number 8300-2 ( in web gallery number 8300_2 becomes in the export 8300-3 and so on...). Thank you very much to resolve this bug !

Can you clarify a bit? I dont quite get what you expect and what you actually get.

Do you think it's related to this issue? http://forums.adobe.com/message/4845457

Bonjour,

I am not quite sure, but I think so. Indeed when I put the gallery on the web, the virtual picture takes the number 8300_1, but then when I export the same picture (for example jpg), it takes the number 8300-2. It is a (big) problem., specially when there are a lot of virtual copies.
Try to create 2 virtual copies. On the web gallery they will be named 8300_1 and 8300_2, but when you export them they become 8300-2 and 8300-3. It just creates confusion. What is the solution ? Thank you very much for your answer.

Consider using "virtual copy name" in the filenaming template (preset). That way, there is no conflict between virtual copy filename and master copy filename, thus no need for -digit uniqueness suffix to be appended, which is what you are seeing.

but when I give a name to the copy, it does not take it into account when I export the jpg, and when I change the name of the file, it gives the new name to all the copies...

1. Include virtual copy name in the export filenaming template.
2. Exclude filename in the export filenaming template.

I think this will solve the problems you have just mentioned, but dunno if it'll solve all or cause more problems than it solves...

Lr's export filenaming is not as robust as some of us would like...

Disclaimer: I'm not so versed with Lr's web-gallery feature, so my comments may only be applicable to the general case of exporting/publishing.
