0.26: User interface of Search dialog

Post by helmut » Mon May 24, 2010 12:04 pm

Some possible GUI improvements in the Search dialog:

- "Remove all" should be a button (currently it's a list entry in "Add >>")

- "Save..." button should become "Save as..." button (all translations might be affected)

- Conditons group panel should have a title, e.g. "Conditions"

- Filename and directory should be listed at top and should be labeled (similar to search dialog of Windows version)

- There should be only one symbol for deleting an entry throughout the whole application. Currently we have "x" in the search dialog and we have "-" in batch conversion.

- Colon ':" behind condition labels could be removed to make a full sentence, e.g. "Image width is greater than 67 kb" instead of "Image width: is greater than 67 kb"

Hello,
+1, I roughly agree with all of these improvements

For the second part (metadata search : "ADD-->"), I roughly like the way as it is now too because that is almost meet this old request here:
http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.p ... 887#p64887

...but about the item: "IPTC keywords", for me, currently it's a little be confusing.
If Contains means " Contains the full sentence" , and "Is any of" means "any of these words separated with a space", then the condition: "Does Not Contain" is missing.
And in this case, it's better to have these 3 conditions terms:
"Contains" => "Exactly Contains"
"Is any of" => "Contains any of"
"Does not Contain any of"

Or maybe only 2 conditions "Contains" & "Does not Contain" but with a square to check/unchek "the full sentence".
( Or like into v1.9x "Whole word only" , but I prefer the term "the full sentence" )
???
