Filename using date-time format gets truncated on export

Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

I am not sure if this is more of a request than a bug, but for me this behavior feels like a bug....

The problem is as follows:

For all my photo's I use a uniform date-time naming convention, YYYY-MM-DD HH.MM.SS (generated by Lightroom upon export). So for example, the resulting filename is: 2020-04-19 16.12.07.jpg

If I edit this example file in Pixelmator Pro and export it again, Pixelmator suggests saving the file as 2020-04-19 16.12. So the name gets truncated, the last part of the name, the seconds, I have to enter manually again.

I think the suggested name should be the full original filename. Or is this a macOS limitation (too many ".")?

Thanks for any help on this.

Hi Michael, this is indeed a bug and a known one but it doesn't have a simple solution, unfortunately. It's been logged, though and we'll do our best to fix it in future updates!
