Feature Request: Assigned Categories - Category Sets

Post by schultzter » Tue Sep 16, 2014 5:59 pm

Good afternoon...

Moved from topic How to: Categories Management - Categories Panel

I'm working through my catalog of photos, hoping this time to finally get it right. One thing I have an issue with in XnView MP is the Category Sets - Assigned interface. I would prefer if it showed me the categories assigned in a tree rather than an alphabetical series of labels/buttons. Since some of my photos already have categories from other photo-managers it's tough to know if the category that is there is the correct one (in the correct hierarchy) or an old one without a hierarchy.

Also, since there are issues with XnView MP applying parent categories consistently it would also help double-check that all categories are properly assigned.

Thanks,

isn't Data pane > Categories > (assigned categories checked) what you are wanting?

With that I see both that is assigned and what isn't. And if you have a lot of categories (like I do) then there's a good chance you'll miss something this checked/un-checked that shouldn't be.

What I'd like is for Category Sets > Assigned to show the the assigned categories in their hierarchy.

maybe a toggle button on the categories pane is needed too: All/Applied ??

so in cat. sets, under Applied, something like... animal:dog places:home

I think Digikam has something like that. That would work too. But since there's already and Assigned tab in XnView MP I would just re-format that.

+1 for showing the full path of set categories instead of categories in alphabetic order.
Vertébré|Mammifère|Périssodactyle|Equidé|Cheval instead of Cheval Equidé Mammifère Périssodactyle Vertébré mixed with other categories.

I'm also missing the option to have all parent categories selected automatically when I select the leaf one (Cheval in the following example):
Vertébré
Mammifère
Périssodactyle
Equidé
Cheval

The option "Don't export" is then used to not export the root ones if necessary while I can still use Vertébré as a filter.

Thanks
Philippe
