Different behavour with custom setting in filename template editor when import photos or F2 i library. When you import photos and want to change filenames according to when the picture is taken, you can't after latest upgrade CC 2015.4.
But if you import photos first then hit F2 (File renaming) in library it works as intended! It then takes the photo date not the current date.

{Date (YYYY)>>}{Date (MM)>>}{Date (DD)>>}

Lightroom version: CC 2015.4 [ 1060496 ]

I can't reproduce this on my CC 2015.4 / OS X 10.11.2 -- when I import with the custom renaming template, the file gets renamed properly with the capture date.

What happens when you select that template on import?  Do the files get renamed to an incorrect date?

Thank you for taking the time! I have probably done someting wrong when I imported my settings from a old backup. When I created a new custom setting in filename template editor it works as it should.
