MP 0.26 Win - Remember state of category tree

Post by andrea.ippo »

Currently in the Categories tab (the one where each category has its own checkbox) the expanded/collapsed state of a category is forgotten when selecting another file.
This behaviour can be annoying if you have a situation like this:

Cat. A
Cat. B
.... ( a lot of sub-categories, say > 100)
Cat. C

and want to classify more files as belonging to Cat. C, because every time you select the next file to classify, the tree gets expanded and you have to scroll all the way down to B.
I know you could also make a multiple selection of all the files to be classified as C and assign them to C in a stroke, but not always you know "a priori" which files you will have to assign to a certain category (perhaps you want to select them to see the preview before, etc...)

The categories list could really need some little improvements. Would be good f.e. to be able to sort the entries individually by drag & drop (not only alphabetically).
But to stay in topic, I join your request.
