Premiere Pro 23.4.0 - Export - Append Preset Name to Filename

Can I automatically get the export preset name appended to the filename of my exported file when exporting directly from Premiere (without going through Media Encoder and without having to manually type the preset name into the File Name box in Premiere/Export)?

Premiere timeline name: "TIMETEST_TIMELINE_01"

export preset name: "H264_1080p"

desired filename: "TEST_TIMELINE_01_H264_1080p.mp4"


For years, when exporting in Premiere, the "append preset name to filename" option from Media Encoder would be obeyed within the Premiere export workflow but has gone missing.  For example, if I want to export my timeline "TEST_TIMELINE_01" using the "H264_1080p" encoder preset, upon selecting an output location/destination in Premiere, the output filename would change to reflect the preference from Media Encoder.  This is what I want!  My output filename would be "TEST_TIMELINE_01_H264_1080p.mp4".


In the new export flow of Premiere 2023, the output filename just matches the name of the source timeline and I will have to manually rename the output filename.  This wastes my time.  I can see a workaround by using the "Send To Media Encoder" button, then the output filename will obey the "append preset name to filename" from Media Encoder preferences, but I'd prefer to not have to go through Media Encoder to get this done.


Is there a toggle in Premiere, or do we need to request a feature?  It appears the Premiere Export flow is now separated from Media Encoder more than ever before.
