Got a question that I've tried asking before but most people misunderstand.  So i'm going to try again.  Once upon a time in Premiere 5 or 5.5 there was a feature where you could name your files but if you put in a symbol (can't remember if it was the forward-slash or dash) after the name followed by another name. Then the exporter would name the file whatever came after the symbol.  For example: Daily Promo/IDPR50555

and the file would be called IDPR50555.  Does anyone know if there is still something like that with the current premiere?  Because later versions of premiere stopped working with the symbol that we were using and it's been so long I can't remember exactly what it was.

Premiere does not accept  /  or   \  in a filename.

This is easy to test yourself.

On Windows, but not Mac, in almost all apps that use the standard Windows Save dialog, the "save as name" can be written as AAA\BBB. This means something quite exact: it means go to the directory AAA and then save the file BBB. The directory AAA has to already exist inside the directory shown in Save.
