I've commented about this previously but it's still the same in v2019.5
As an example, I want to import my raw files from my card reader into a new sub-folder.
I plug in my card reader and select the files I wish to import, which were taken on two different days.
Under "Destination" I select (for example) Sony RX100\2019 as my destination folder. I organise my files by Year, followed by a sub-folder with the actual capture date, organised by YYYY-MM-DD
So within the 2019 folder I wish to create a new sub-folder for the date of the images,
So I select "Backup None"
& "Organise Day (YYYY/MM/DD)"
If I were using Lightroom, this would create a new sub-folder within my 2019 folder, with my image files created on that date.
Instead On1 creates a new 2019 folder, within the existing 2019 folder,
with sub folders 05
Sub folder 24 contains images created on 24th May, and Sub folder 04 contains images taken on 4th June
What I want is a sub folder called 2019-05-24 and another sub folder called 2019-06-04, both as sub folders within 2019, each of which contains my image files taken on that day.
If I were importing with Lightroom, these would be created automatically from the EXIF of the image files.
As it is with ON1, I have to manually create the sub folders, move my images into them and then delete the unwanted folders created by On1. This is really tedious and unecessary, and I've taken to copying my images using windows file manager, having created the new destination folders manually, and not bothering with importing through On1.
I keep coming back to the On1 import dialog in case I've missed something, but it just doesn't seem to work the way I want and expect it to.
