CS4 Slice naming problem, bug?

So I've got a .psd with some slices on it, about 25 to be exact.

When I go to 'Save For Web' and hit save, I change the 'File Name' from the prefill which is 'MyLayout' (the name of the .psd) to something shorter like 'ML'.

When I hit 'save', all the slices are saved to a folder as normal...except slices 1-20 have the prefix of 'ML' (which is what I want), and slices 21-25 have a prefix of 'MyLayout'.

I've tried everything to get all slices named with the prefix of 'ML' and can't figure our why this is happening.  I've cleared all slices and created them all over again, even tried it on older versions of photoshop and get the same results.

What am I missing?

have you named the actual slices in the document or are you just relying on the save for web to use the default name?  I would use the choose slice tool, and double click one of the 21-25 slices and see what it is called.  also from there you can manually set them to ML or whatever you want.  hope that helps

Thanks for the Reply!

All slices, from 1-25 are named the same thing: MyLayout_X  (where X is the slice number)

If I manually change the slice name of one of the offenders to ML_X then it does save it as 'ML'

But this still doesn't solve my problem because as I add more slices it's going to get really tedious to rename them all, you know...?
