0.84: Click on favorites star does nothing

Post by helmut » Wed Feb 15, 2017 9:16 pm

XnView: MP 0.84
OS: Windows 10 - 64bit

When clicking on the favorites symbol, nothing happens.

Effect: Irritating user interface: Button has no functionality behind it.

To reproduce:
1. In XnView browser click on the favorites symbol (star).

Actual behaviour (bug): Nothing happens :bug:

Expected behaviour: Something should happen, e.g. the current folder should be added to the favorites (with / or without asking).

Edit: Moved to "MP - Suggestions" because some discussion is required to decide what the action should be when clicking on the favorites symbol.

Agree. I would think just have it pop up with the same dialog that it does when clicking on 'Add Favorite...' with an option to skip the dialog and just add it automatically with the name of the folder. Then you could click the star to do a quick add or click the drop-down arrow then 'Add Favorite...' if you want to customize the name. Even more important, there needs to be a way to remove favorites (or if there is one somewhere, it needs to be much, much easier and more obvious).

Edit: Just figured out how to remove favorites.

I think that it is no discussion needed. The „Add Favorite” is so obvious...

Do not forget about new users. Do not forget about other programs. For ex. in my FireFox the „star” button shows as a tooltip: „Bookmark this page (Ctrl+D)”.

Right, action "Add Favorite" should be started and the dialog "Add favorite" is displayed.

Yes, a tooltip "Add to Favorites" should be displayed.

(Note: FireFox indicates with a filled or non-filled star that the page has been bookmarked already or not and offer different functionalty. Would be cool if XnView also had such an indicator but this would be a suggestions.)

So: Back to "MP - Bug reports" > Reproduced.
