keep the original asset image file name on export

0 votes

Hello support team,

i got an indesign file with images (png) and referenced indesign files in it.
After export to HTML, the asset names in output folder are sometimes overwritten with a generic name "item_{item-id}". This is not very useful, because you lose any reference to the original file.
The integrated Indesign HTML export retains the original object name when exporting.
Is there a workaround or setting for this problem to keep the original file name?


Thank you in advance!

Best regards,

it seems, only embedded indesign file is affected by renaming.

Setting Image Quality to Use Source Image (or selecting the corresponding options in the Object Export settings) will retain the file name in most cases.
