0.88: Excluding folders in Catalog settings doesn't work

Postby miki » Wed Nov 15, 2017 10:44 am

XnView: MP 0.88 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 10 - 64 bit

Excluding folders in Catalog settings doesn't work. Files from these folders are still being displayed in the Categories Filter and their subfolders are still included in the Catalog - Cached Directory.

Effect: User is confused when trying to exclude folders from Catalog, but files within these folders are still being catalogized.

To reproduce:
1. Add folder(s) to be excluded in Settings-Catalog-Excluded/Included
2. You can still see files from these folders in the Categories Filter.
3. When you copy files to these Excluded folders, they are still being catalogized (added to Categories Filter).

Actual behaviour (bug): Excluding folders from Catalog doesn't make any effect for user.

Expected behaviour: When you exclude folder from Catalog, all files within these folder/subfolders should stop being catalogized. They shouldn't be included in the Categories Filter. When you copy files inside these excluded folders, they shouldn't be added to the Catalog (Categories Filter).

I have tried again and can still observe that. I took a screenshot. Files inside the excluded folders are still being catalogized. Even when I copy files into the excluded folders they are added to Catalog, which causes duplicate entries of the same file from folders supposed to be excluded from Catalog.

Do you start with a clean database or files was already in the catalog before to add exclude folder?

In the screenshot...
1. I added excluded folder in settings.
2. I selected files (already categorized in an non-excluded folder) and copied them into the excluded folder. And they were added again into Catalog despite being copied into the excluded folder path.

Only thing I can notice about Excluded folders is that I can't assign categories to the clean files, which weren't added to catalog yet (categories panel is not-clickable).

I believe user would expect that any files contained in the excluded folder paths won't be displayed in the Categories Filter despite excluded folders specified now or later. I hope it makes sense.
