Automatic snippet naming suggestion
#1
Hi @all,

would it be possible to propose an automatic name for a new snippet,. e.g. derived from the original one? As of today the name field for the new snippet is empty at its creation.

Why?
I use snippets to create a linearization of a (scanned) score, so the original import is just the starter of the process, not a song to be kept. But very frequently the derived, ready-set snippet should take its place in the end, so a name suggestion very similar to the imported one would be very helpful to i) discerning the new snippet from the original import ii) relieve me from the chore to give a new name which will usually be not very short but should be self-documenting. At the moment, the name field is completely empty.

How?
The idea is already realized in many interaction systems (especially: downloads by web browsers) where new versions of the same desired file (resp. file name) are automatically build by something like filename(1).xyz, or ...(2).xyz, or ...(3).xyz, depending on the existence of the next-in-row name suggestion in the target directory. Having such as a starting point, even an individual naming would be derivable much faster as it will certainly relate to the name of the original import.

Additionally, leaving a respective suggestion as it is, one would immediately see which of the files is obviously the newest one, helping to get rid of the right (old, former) versions after finishing the creation of the new (final) snippet.

Kind regards,
Petra
