Duplicated Character Names


Edited 1582324783
This is a fairly small suggestion that would save a lot of minor annoyances from piling up I think. Right now when you duplicate a Character Sheet, it renames it to "Copy of <Character Name>."  This can be quite annoying when making several copies of a character for threats, etc. My suggestion is effectively to instead rename the sheets "<Character Name> ##" with a number that continues to increase if the name is redundant.  i.e.: Thug Thug 01 Thug 02 Thug 03 Instead of:   Thug Copy of Thug Copy of Thug Copy of Thug Anyway, I think this would save tons of little annoyances throughout GM'ing, esp when you want to spin a copy off of a stock character.  While it's a quick edit having to do it over and over again can be quite cumbersome in a hurry.
