I would prefer a suffix rather than a prefix. Especially on the UM2+ with limited screen size. If it would be switchable everybody would be pleased... ?

{model_name} gets replaced by the file name that you loaded

I always have to change that to a project name though. Many times I load multiple models and it just grabs the name of the first model.....so I can still do that at the Save As dialogue?

    Uh huh, there's other issues with file names (which aren't getting any attention, literally not ONE response so I don't even know if I'm the only person it is happening to). Ensuring the file name and the only model on the bed match seems like a good place to start.



    I very much support GhostKeeper's wildcard strategy. I thought it would be too big to implement compared to a single blank where you type in what you want, but hey, if you can make it happen that rocks!

    I change the prefix to PL for PLA and PE for PETG. Otherwise you wouldn't know what material the gcode was created for.

    We also have different sized/branded printers, so each printer also needs a character to identify it. Therefore a customisable prefix for each printer with flexibility in number of characters would be ideal. Then I could have for example FPL for Flashforge PLA, WPE for Wanhao PETG etc.
