Wildcard character in "File pattern"

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way that I can remove the wildcard character in the file pattern permanently? Or turn off the search for patterns? (Win64, 3.1.1)

I have a couple of numbered trajectory files (each one contains multiple frames) in the same folder, but I don't want to see all of them as a continues trajectory file every time I open one of them.

Thank you.

Hi Sina,

The current version of OVITO doesn't allow you to turn off the automatic loading of all matching files in the directory. But you are right, for some users the default behaviour might be annoying, and it would be useful to have a configurable option for turning it off.

I am going to add such an option to one of the next program releases.


Hi, That would be great! Thank you very much. Sina

OVITO version 3.1.2 was released today, which introduces a new user option for permanently turning off the generation of a file name pattern during import. See here. I hope you will like the new option. In case you have any suggestions how to further improve the solution, let me know.

Hi - It works perfectly! Thanks.
