SKU generation bug in GS 9.x

This is a minor bug, but has cost some time diagnosing it for me.

Using the Listing... > Generate SKUs... menu, I can set all the fields as I want them, including the Start Value and Step Size, and the SKUs I get will be set just as I want.

However, when I re-open the dialog box, the new starting value is not the next value given the step size, but has only been incremented by the number of SKU values generated.

As an artificial example, if Start Value is 1000, and Step Size is 11, and I generate 5 SKU values, I will get

  • 1000
  • 1011
  • 1022
  • 1033
  • 1044

But if I keep the same five items selected, and open the dialog again, the Start Value field is only incremented by 5, not by 5x11, and the next time I generate SKU values I will get

  • 1005
  • 1016
  • 1027

This seems like a bug. The Start Value update should retain information about the last value the iterator generated, not how many it has generated.

Seems like the correct Start Value should be set to “1055” when I re-open the dialog box.
