Be able to choose the Scale-Prefix when exporting slices!

Recommended Posts

Hello! This is a FYI request from an Android Developers view.

I am an Android Developer and tried your program as a tool to export some PSD-file-mockups of a App-design.
I really like the program so far with all its functionality and I do like the "export-persona". But one thing is really anoying.

There is an option, when you export a slice, to choose what should be in the file-name. You can there choose the "scale-suffix"
This puts an "@1x", "@2x", "@3x" in your filename to seperate the files in a really sufficiant way. This is a amazing on MAC where the
"@X" suffix has a real use. BUT, when it comes to Android development this is a real pain.

This is the error straight from Android studio:
"Error: '@' is not a valid file-based resource name character: File-based resource names must contain only lowercase a-z, 0-9, or underscore"
This means that I now have to go and rename all those files by hand, wich was something I wanted to avoid with exporting the files through Affinity Designer.

There is an simple fix for this. Make a new suffix that is made for android without the "@" and it will be perfect.

Thank you for your time!
