P: Hour file-renaming token doesn't work in Polish or Russian

Using the Hour file-renaming token results in an internal error when LR is running in Polish or Russian. To reproduce on LR 13.3.1:

 

1. Set Preferences > General > Language to Polski and restart LR.

 

2. In Library, select a photo and do F2 (Rename Photo).

 

3. In the File Naming drop-down, select Edit (the last menu item).

 

4. Create the renaming template "Data (RRRRMMDD) - Godzina" (Godzina is Hour in Polish):

5. Click OK twice, and observe this error:

johnrellis_1-1717828728727.png

 

Translation: Internal error. AgDate.formatDatelnUserFormat: %W specifier not yet implemented.

 

6. Repeat the previous steps for Russian:

and observe this internal error:

This is a trivial bug to fix. In the corresponding TranslatedStrings files, all the other languages have 

/AgNaming/Token/dateEvaluator_Hour set to %H (the Lua date-formatting code for "Hour with leading zero (24-hour clock)"). But the files for Polish and Russian have it set to %W and %T respectively, which are invalid formatting codes:

 

 

$ grep /AgNaming/Token/dateEvaluator_Hour *.lproj/*.txt
de.lproj/TranslatedStrings_Lr_de_DE.txt:"$$$/AgNaming/Token/dateEvaluator_Hour=%H"

Please help, couldn't find any solution!

When I try to rename photos by date and hour I am unable to set the hour properly. Year, month and date works, as well as minutes and seconds, however when I try to add an hour - example of a name disappears and error appears.

I'm trying to format my photos like this: YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS

 

When doing that in "export" and "rename" F2 windows, this error shows up:
Unable to export

Internal error has occured:

AgDate.formatDateInUserFormat: %W specifier not yet implemented

I searched internet, but with no avail. Has anyone had similar problem?

This naming preset works fine for me (Windows, release 13.2) for file renaming and also for export.

So after choosing the YYYYMMDD option of the Date token, you do need to separately type in the dash and then separately choose Hour, Minute and Second naming tokens in turn. Typing extra stuff inside the supplied YYYYMMDD naming token - that is, within its curly brackets - is not going to succeed. Each token (or else manual text, such as the dash) needs to be used as-is, and will then be combined into the desired name.

Yes, I've tried doing exactly as you showed, sadly, it doesn't work 😕

I can add Minute and Second, but as soon as I add Hour - the "example" disappears and trying to export triggers an error.

can you create a video recording of the process that is failing and post that? I see you are using Windows OS. The Snipping tool will work for that video recording.

Just to eliminate something, what world timezone was the camera clock set to at the time, was a TZ offset from that shown by the camera and encoded in the photo, how would that relate to the localised TZ set in the computer - and how did LrC handle all of that, is what I was thinking.

 

IOW perhaps "Hour" is getting wrongly pushed out of range somehow, for this purpose.

"AgDate.formatDateInUserFormat: %W specifier not yet implemented"

 

That's very strange. In the Lua library used by LR's implementation, the %W specifier is the week number of the current year.  As requested by GoldingD, please post a screen recording (not a phone video) showing the complete steps you're taking, including the entire LR window (for clues).  Alternatively, post a full-resolution screenshots of the entire LR window right before you enter Hour, right after, and of error message.

Well, it's quite ironic.

I'm from Poland and had my Lightroom set in Polish. When I changed the language to English just to record everything as you asked (so that you wouldn't be confused by a different language), suddenly everythings works fine.

 

I have no idea why my language brakes the system :V but I'm happy to know how to "solve" the issue.

It would be awesome if Adobe fixed this.. As much as I know English I would prefer to use my native language settings.

 

Here's the video you asked for:

(at the end i didn't try to export and rename, but it works fine just like normal F2 renaming)

I filed a bug report about this -- the Hour token doesn't work in Polish and Russian.

 

While waiting for Adobe to fix this (hopefully in the next release, but very possibly in a later release), it's easy to fix yourself.  Open this file Notepad:

 

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom Classic\Resources\pl\TranslatedStrings_Lr_pl_PL.txt

 

Search for this line:

 

pl.lproj/TranslatedStrings_Lr_pl_PL.txt:"$$$/AgNaming/Token/dateEvaluator_Hour=%W"

 

and change the %W to %H.

I found an error in Lightroom Classic that occurs when the language is set to Polish.

How to reproduce the bug:

1. Change the language of Lightroom Classic to Polish.
2. Open the Library module and select a photo.
3. Go to the menu: Library -> Rename Photo. Edit the custom name and try to add the hour and minute to it.

In the Polish version, this cannot be done. However, when I switch Lightroom Classic to English, it works as it should, and I can change the file name to include the hour and minute.

The same issue occurs on my friend's Windows 11 computer.

See the attached video I recorded to demonstrate the problem.

PS: I don't know why you deleted my previous post, saying that it is a duplicate. It is not!
