Other observations, there's no help files! I downloaded some trial software the other day and one of the things missing from the trial compared to the full version was the manual, duh! Now if you are trying something out, that's when you probably know least about it. And as very basic things were not at all obvious, trial got deleted.
When you rename files when importing, Phocus did the date 'incorrectly' as it did day-month-year, which is useless for filing/sorting as 29-05-2008_name_001 ends up next to 28-05-2001_name_001. I prefer to use 2008-05-29_name_001 and 2001-05-28_name_001. So I wondered if Phocus does it according to how one's system is set up as it's British, not American in order as well. So I went into System Prefs and went into customised on the date preferences and you can reorder the year/month/ day order. So now Phocus labels the images 'correctly', i.e. as I want them.
