I want to create a renaming preset that reflects the name of the virtual copy, if the image uses one. I created this preset:

{Filename>>}_{Copy Name>>}

That works if the image is a virtual copy. It does not do what I want if the image is the master (not a virtual copy) because it leaves a "hanging delimiter" at the end. For example...

image.nef --> image_.nef
image_copy 1.nef --> image_copy1.nef

Is there a way to do this, using sime sort of conditional delimiter?

The reason this is important to me is that I am contemplating storing all my NEFs from a shoot in a single folder. In order to make that make sense to an outside app (such as my iMatch catalog app) I think I need a full res "buddy jpg" that reflects the LR edits to the master, as well as any virtual copies I make.

I absolutely DO NOT want to have to do two exports, one for masters and one for the virtual copies. There doesn't even seem to be a filter to do that (masters only or virtual copies only).
