One of the potentially really nice things about Presenter (compared to Competing Product X) is that it uses a regular file system layout for resources, such as audio files.

This makes it possible to directly change the audio file without having to use the GUI -- and thus to perform batch processing on audio files using external tools. (For example, to add background music, or to apply an audio filter -- neither of which would change the timing of the audio events.)

However, Presenter does generate randomized file names, which makes it hard to know which one is which. It's possible to change them by editing the XML in the PPT, but that's highly inconvenient.

Could you make a best-effort attempt to preserve the names of the files at the time they are imported? It's obviously possible for someone to import two files with the same name, so you might need to append something to the names:

    Foo
    Foo_1

But for people who care, it will be easy to name the audio files in a way that will make sense.

Thank you for your suggestion. We will try to take it into account in one of the future versions of the product
