Get Naming rules from "PDF Export"

Hi All,

I would like to get the File name of pdf export as highlighted.
Can somebody help me to fix it out?


Hi Robert,

Can you please be a bit more descriptive? Are you using a script, if so can you add it here to see what is happening?


This is based on a naming rule. Python/API can get this setup:

I am sorry, I don’t know how to start the script. Can you please provide me the step by step procedure for that? I illiterate in Python/API.

I illiterate in Python/API.

Not starting a script, and pleading the fifth on Python awareness wont get you far on these forums unfortunately. I believe Genius Loci has a bunch of nodes dealing with the printing features in 2022+ based on recent forum activity. Go digging around there I’d say.

It may not be possible to get the current naming rule, as the PDF Export Options looks to be only available via a constructor versus via the document’s own options in use.
