0.82: Category on folder

Postby SilvLight » Mon Aug 22, 2016 2:42 am

Hi,
I just found out i can actually category folders by right click on folder and select category, i don't know if it a bug or feature. But the categories window is unable to edit when i highlighted a folder, so i can't untick mis-categorized folder.
It is a good feature to let user category a folder, i hope you can fix the categories window instead of treated it as a bug and remove "category on folder" feature.

p.s.: sorry for my bad english.

The problem still exists in v0.84:
You can drag a folder and drop it on a category. The folders are displayed with category icon.

No.

Besides the glitches in GUI there isn't the necessary DB support for this. Your "assigned category" isn't saved anywhere - just restart the program to see.

Besides that, supporting this feature would open an entire can of worms (queries need to be rewritten etc.) because the folders are saved in a different table than files.

Btw, folders NEED to be "categorized" but the 'category' engine for them is already there: the file system.

Ok, XnView needs to support the shortcuts.

O.k. :shock: Things turn out very differently.

First bug has been reported by original poster:
Actual behaviour: When selecting a folder, the category pane is disabled. :bug:

Expected behaviour: When selecting a foldre, the category pane remains enabled and the user can assign and remove categories as desired.

Partially fixed. The "Assigned" category set and custom category sets are still grayed.
