Re: New category "People"

Well, the "People" feature is changed right now - as it has become "unnecessarily" (your words) new in the last version. And to my understanding that "People" entry is not a "basic feature" at all. I am talking about an option (default = show) to hide the mentioned three entries. Users like me, who ...

Re: New category "People"

Yes, you will be right. Nevertheless there will be users who don't need it/ or don't need it THIS way. And for them it would be nice to have that MANDATORY. All I'm suggesting to change it to OPTIONAL (to prevent XnViewMP be "messed up" with things one don't need - to make it personal). The choice d...

Re: New category "People"

Thanks for the explanation.

However this seems a very special feature that won't be used for as much users.

I propose to not show "People" in the category list mandatory but to show it optional.
(As well as "Rating" and "Colour Label").

Re: New category "People"

Hello. What "face tag", please? I am talking about the super category that shows as "People" for me. It's new in the new version. It's just beyond "Rating" and "Colour Label". All of them 3 I have no use at all, and best would like to disable from view. Moreover I do understand that "Rating" and "Co...

Re: New category "People"

Whatever it is...
I don't like it being mandatory.
Please make it on option, Pierre.

Re: Update catalog from all folders?

I'm glad that we are understanding at last :-)

And I hope you see that this is no "strange" requirement
but a typical use of MP.

Actually I have nearly hundred folders included in MP.
And I really can't tell where and when I added files to.

Looking forward for "check folders" :-) :-)

Re: Update catalog from all folders?

But you don't tell me if file are or not in the catalog, so not easy to understand. I CANNOT tell if the files are in the catatog or not, as I don't know how MP is working. But I can tell that the folders in which the files are included in are included in MP's catalog. The only way to find 'uncateg...

Re: Update catalog from all folders?

I can't tell if the new files are noticed by MP in my use case. But I doubt it. To me it seems, as if MP only notices new files when I open the folder the new file is located it. If that is the case, it would be bad. I have to admit I don't understand where is the problem in getting my very usual us...

Another way is maybe to display and select all images (recursive display), and click "View, Update catalog from files" ....
It will take the same time.
This is most harmful, as it will erase ALL category assoziations but the ones included in the files.
BEWARE!

Re: Update catalog from all folders?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Yes, it's the update of the catalog from the files.
But not a complete update but just the category "uncategorized".

I described why this is important in a typical use case.

It shouldn't be possible only by tricks I might think.

Re: Update catalog from all folders?

Obviously we're still misunderstanding each other. I try be giving the step-by-step scenario, OK? I have a fully configurated MP, with dozens of folders, a lot of categories, and say all the files assoziated to categories. I think no misunderstanding so far? OK, now, with the time, there are many fi...
