    I've change my Text Editing tool to VSCode, which works, except that the output file from "View in Notepad" is always named Rawfile.htm and if the file is already open in VSCode it doesn't seem to get updated.

    If there a way to generated a custom name for each file being copied to a "Text Editor"?

    Hi Derek,

    Unfortunately, this is a temporary file and the suggested name is derived from within the application. However, since the file is temporary it could be saved as a different name. In Visual Studio Code, the key combination for Save As is Ctrl + Shift + s.

    Additionally, the file should update after each View in Notepad button click. Note that this may appear as no changes if the raw values hasn't changed. For example, when reviewing the same Web Session it will render as nearly identical with the exception of the time stamp as shown in the below screenshots .
