Export File Name Sequence Option

When exporting a name sequence, Lightroom names files XXX-1, XXX-2, etc. This makes sorting the files a challenge when there is no leading 0 in the numeric sequence for more than 9 files. Similar problem when sorting above 99. Would you mind putting leading zeros in the number sequences like this: XXX-01, XXX-02, etc or XXX-001, XXX-002, etc? That would improve sorting when managing the files outside Lightroom (WordPress/SquareSpace).

You can do that now.  Just create a new Rename template.

Thanks Robert. Never clued into it although I do rename on export, but use a simple renaming (which causes issues, now I can reduce the issues

Thank you! I didn't know that existed. VERY NICE! Just wish it kept the last setting from session to session.
