Feature request: Add an option to start counting frames from zero (and possibly other values). #1300
Normally, the timeline begins counting at 1, which makes sense at a glance but becomes troublesome since the software I'm using expects the first frame to be numbered zero. Because I have to list frame sequences fairly often, I find myself tabbing back and forth between ASEprite and other documents and having to mentally add or subtract one from frame numbers as I go, and it's turning out to be rather cumbersome.
Being able to set the initial number to something other than one or zero would also simplify upkeep and management for multipart .ase files, for however often that comes up.
The frame enumeration would primarily be a UI customization feature, changing the values shown on the timeline, but would also effect serialized file names when multiple frames saved in sequence (saving a multiframe .ase as .pngs, for instance). Similarly, loaded/imported files with sequential filenames would be shown on the timeline under frame numbers corresponding to the number in their filename, presumably as an option.
What I'm really after here is the ability to set the number of the first frame on the time line to 0, rather than 1. Besides everything else, what I really need is this.
Thanks for considering these ideas! :D
