The documentation seems outdated.
Currently, the sequence number and the dash are not customizable. Nor is the 
order of the different parts of the custom file name.
Prefix and suffix can be freely choosen, but nothing is substituted in the 
string IIRC.
The date and time is freely configurable, documentation is given in the edit 
box itself (setting "Advanced")
