HTML file names

Am I correct that there is no way to override the generated article file names (fog*.html) and the path where those files will be placed?

CityDesk seems to be able to do exactly what I need to do for a site I'm working on, except I can't live with those file names. One of my pet peeves is cryptic file names; if I'm looking at some HTML files on my hard drive, I'd much rather see "about.html" than "fog0000000002.html".

Along the same lines, I'd like to be able to specify a path (relative to index.html) where the articles will reside, rather than always an "Articles" subdirectory. These could both be fields in the Properties -- optional fields to override the default behavior.

If this capability is there and I just haven't found it, I'd appreciate a pointer. Otherwise, I'd suggest it for a future version.

Here is the short answer for now:

To specify a path for an article, just make folders using the New Folder command and put it in there.

Renaming files (from fog... to something else) is Coming Soon Now.
