B2: Drag&Drop on Ratings

Post by helmut »

In Beta 2 images can be dragged on categories and thus assigned to the appropriate category. For ratings (which are listed in the same pane) drag & drop does not work.

I think handling should be consistent and therefore consider this as a bug.

To reproduce:

1. In browser move to a folder which contains images
2. Switch to category pane by clicking onto the appropriate tab or menu View > Tree pane > Categories.
3. Drag & Drop an image onto the category "Category". This works.
4. Drag & Drop an image onto the category "Ratings". This does not work. :bug:

• Hi !
…3. Drag & Drop an image onto the category "Category". This works.
4. Drag & Drop an image onto the category "Ratings". This does not work.
3. & 4. Worse here, it doesn't work for any ! As soon as the Image cursor reaches the “Category” pane,
it becomes the "Forbidden" one Image :|

3. I cannot test this because when I go to create a Category, XnView won't let me use backspace or del key to rename the entry.
4. Works perfectly in Beta 3 for me.

Dragging files on [+] should open the category / folder, could you please start a seperate topic for this?

As a workaround you can first open the category by clicking on [+] and then you can drag & drop.

Strange. Renaming on subcategories works for me. Be aware that the name of the root category can never be changed (not sure whether this is intended or not). If your problem persists please start a new topic.
