so sounds like you are using Rtext or fields.
I would say no, you have to "hardcode" the text to the filename, do not make it reactive with diesel.

Here is what I have been using for ten years:
Automatically updates with my redefined save command. (updates text on that
layer)

Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.
