H6: rename project to something longer than 8 characters.

It seems that when you set the H6 to name projects to the default it's called ZOOM000x. So 8 characters long. One can also choose to name it to date/time which makes the length a lot longer. Somehow I haven't figured out yet how to rename a project ZOOM0001 to something else that's longer than 8 characters except for choosing the date-time format. How do I move the cursor to the 9th (not yet existing) character if I'm renaming a project called eg. ZOOM0001?

Not having an H6 I have to interpret from the manual -- page 50...

The impression is that pressing the select/rocker moves to the next character position. If it only moves it through the existing 8 characters, it may be an internal limitation.

Page 25 only shows directories have 8-character names...

Page 86 states that non-date names are 8-character. I wouldn't be surprised if date format is just for display, and underneath the H6 is still creating 8-character directory names (if you pop the SD card after creating a project in each mode, and insert it in a computer card reader, what type of directory names do you find?)

What you think is plausible but I can actually rename a project which was originally saved as a date/time to something of the same langth but alphanumerical characters longer than 8 characters while with the rocker switch I cannot put the cursor further than the 8th character.
