Remember last used script

Post by vitar » Wed Oct 26, 2005 3:42 pm

Dear Pierre,

Would it be possible that the last used script is remembered in the convert dialogue window? The work would go much faster if there's no need to load the same script again and again.

Thank you for the great thing!

But be careful, if you automatically load last script, user might not see that when he wants just convert images quickly and he could also (e.g.) crop his images by accident. We must find some solution. I already have one (or two) :)

Button with a checkbox [ [x] Advanced Operations ]

or:

Another option: [x] Use the last used script

No not loaded, only list of old script

Yes, like recent files.
Last used (newest) should have focus (highlighted).

OK, but for some users might be useful also this option, when they must apply same script 10 or 20 times... They could press just ctrl+u and enter.

the recent list will crash if you select a script that is not longer existing

No and no. The window already remembers everything else. According to your logic everything in there is already dangerous and might cause the user to overwrite something. Second IMHO there is really no need for an option or additonal action. The last used script should just be remembered like everything else (and I requested this already in a different thread).

This program will become unsuable (partly it is already) for newcomers due to too many unneccesary and obsolete options and settings...
