MP0.26-automatically select Categories Tab if overlay icon..

Post by oops66 » Mon Apr 19, 2010 1:19 pm

Request to automatically select the window "Info Preview Categories Tab" when clicking under IPTC overlay icon into a thumbnail - Ergonomic issue.
Hello,
It would be interesting to have the opportunity to attribute (or change) with the existing keyword list and "on the fly" some IPTC/XMP/Categories DB keywords just by clicking under the "Keyword overlay icon" into a thumbnail (like for ratting & color overlay icons on the left).

Ps:
1-) this "keyword overlay icon" can be gray if no categories and/or IPTC and/or XMP keywords are selected (affected)
2-) .. and with the current yellow-orange color if one or more keywords are affected to the image.

Great idea! All overlay icons (EXIF, IPTC, XMP, GPS) should have that kind of functionality attached to them.

+1, I agree
Maybe with a bistable behavior (first mouse click = "Related info Tab", next mouse click = "Preview", next mouse click = "Related info Tab", etc...)
