%b(1,10)_%ncount.%e  (add  selection number plus the word "count")

(add selection number relative to a name "collision" (same beginnings),...)

So Siren do not see "%n" only plus literal "count",  but %nc" plus the letters "ount".

But you can escape the "c" to drop the special meaning of "%nc"
by using an backslash like in "%n\c".

So you could use:


The same for
%b(1,10)_%npart.%e (add selection number relative to the file path)

and all other variables.
