Exporting stems with track number as prefix, i.e. '01 Kick In'

I would love to have the option to automatically add the track number as a prefix to the file name while exporting stems. Right now, the file name only consists of the track name and, if I wish to do so, a prefix that I can manually enter (the song name for example). If I want the track number as a prefix, i.e. '01 Kick In', '02 Kick Out', I have to edit the file names after the stem export has finished. It would be great to have to a checkbox that says "Include track number as prefix" or, even better, an input field where I can build a template for the track names out of variables as it is in Logic Pro X for example. It looks like this:

Yes, some expanded file naming options (multiple custom prefixes and suffixes) would be very welcome when exporting lots of different versions of a mix.

I am just about to swap from cubase to studio one after 10 years of using cubase and this so far is the only bad thing really I found in studio one that we cant have proper stem export options as well as prefix options! I want to be able to customize my export prefix names.. its a shame that such simple thing is not implemented yet :(

Has this feature been implemented in the last version of S1 ? I'm still working with 4.5 and stems export is a real  chore when you want to work professionally.

Thanks to the PreSonus team for fixing this if it's not yet done ! crying
