Rated & Colorcoded Folders in the Overview

Postby Hotep » Sun Mar 05, 2017 6:27 pm

Hi!

I've seen you can rate and colorcode folders. It would be a great help, if you can see the rating and die Color in the file tree of the overview.

I use the colorcodes for my workflow and i want to see which folder i have to categorise and rate.

Thanks for the great programm!

Hi Hotep!

Welcome among us!

Well, this is a very useful feature for which I subscribe. It is implemented in other DAMs as well. For example here is the variant from another program:

PhotoSupreme Coloring.jpg
PhotoSupreme Coloring.jpg (10.64 KiB) Viewed 72 times


However putting BOTH rating and coloring can be a little tricky because then it needs space for two icons.

If Pierre chooses to implement only the Coloring which is the most important in this case because is usually used to mark the status, then the implementation is more simpler because in fact he must just replace the actual folder icon with the corresponding color.

Of course he must be careful at refreshing issues etc.

Hint: This is an old requested feature (see viewtopic.php?f=60&t=29981 ) however it seems that Pierre didn't noticed that we requested to show the colors in the Folders Pane also.

Oh, I haven't seen the old request. Thanks for the hint.

I think both may be possible. It's possible to colorcode the icons (folder) and put a small star on it. For myself the colors would be enough.

Difficult to draw. Usually the tree widgets allow one (or more) icons in front. We see that Qt's tree class (together with TreeItem) allows at least one icon. Ok, Pierre can simulate/draw two (if the class doesn't provide this feature out of the box) but usually, like you noted, we are ok with the colors.
