Can the byeos sequence number be reset?

Question

I really would like to be able to reset the sequence number when changing from one target to another, or from one frame type to another, or when I change the target folder.

BYE/BYN always starts from 1.  There is currently no concept of storing the current plan progress outside a running plan... so if you start the plan, stop it, then restart it, it starts from 1 again.

This is why I'm asking for clarification because this is what BYE/BYN does be default.

If I have a sequence of exposures, say for taking Darks at different exposures, I want each set sequence number to start at 1.

My experience is that if I change any parameter, say from Dark to Light or from one target to another target, the sequence does not reset to 1.

So when taking any set of exposures, if ANY parameter other than the number of exposures changes, I want the sequence number to reset to 1.

Stopping and starting a plan? I thought that what I am doing when I change any parameter from one shoot to the next, such as the ISO or the target name and then click on Start Capture.

So what do you mean by stopping and starting a plan?

The only way I know to reset the sequence number is to quit BYE and start it up again. Not even the Reset button resets the sequence number. It just clears the parameters back to default.

I'm using version 3.1.17 as of 3/16/2019.

I am not sure why this is important...The main purpose of the sequence number is to ensure that the file names are unique. You can sort by Date/Time to get the images in the order that the files were created.

I don't even use the sequence number, opting to use the timestamp, instead.
