Lightroom Feature Request: File naming improvement.
When originally importing images into LR, a template may be made for naming presets. Within the options, one may insert more than one custom text area in addition to the name of the shoot. However, while actually inputting the information for the filenames during import, there is only one custom input option that inserts that one single choice into both custom text spaces.

For instance: If I choose a format of Date-Custom Text-Shoot Name-Custom text, when importing I only get one custom text field to fill in, so my naming may look like this 2FEB2014-Rocks-GeologyDay-Rocks. It would be nice to be able to have multiple custom text fields independent of each other.

Furthermore, if after the images are imported one would like to change the name of the images, there are even less options: One one custom text field and not even a shoot name.

It doesn't make sense for these two renaming options to be out of sync.
