Allow the user to provide a date format for new files.

A user can decide to either name new files "Untitled" or 'yyyyMMddhhmm'.
I personally would like to name new files 'yyyyMMddhhmmss' since I might create two new files in one minute.

What's your opinion on this?


  • It's on my to-do list! Adding this is not trivial because The Archive doesn't just have to write, but also read and recognize the IDs generated by users. At best, this can quickly become very slow, so I need to be careful.

  • Yes, depending on what you allow to be customized it may get slow.
    In case you use a NSDateFormatter storing a dateString in UserDefaults shouldn't slow things down too much.
