[Digikam-users] A few problems with the batch tool manager (Version 3.5.0)

1) renaming files: it doesn't work like it did in the past. I cannot add
any text, nor delete any anything already there in the pattern name. In
fact, I cannot even click in the box, nor select anything in it (only use
the buttons File and such); and the 'X' button to get rid of whatever is in
the box doesn't work either.

2) I miss the previous 'ask when the file already exists' option that has
disappeared in this new version: quite often, when the file already exists,
that means I've already treated it before, and I don't want to generate a
new file, nor override the existing one.
The option was also handy when I need to create a file that has a maximum
size (300Ko for example); in that case, the former option asked I want to
override or not, and displayed the size that was about to be created, so I
had the choice to go on, or cancel for each specific file.

3) I'm trying to add drop shadows on whole batch of pictures, so they
appear as if they are framed. The watermark tool seems to be a good
candidate for that; infortunately, when both X and Y margins are set to 0%,
there seem to be at least 1 remaining pixel top and left margins.
Any idea how to fix this? Or another solution/tool that allows to add drop

Thanks for your answers,
