            Bug ID: 375573
           Summary: Don't reset/destroy context after deleting one image
                    among a set of duplicates
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.5.0
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Searches-Fuzzy
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: ddascalescu+kde at gmail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

I have a collection with many similar images (~20 takes per shot) and the goal
is to quickly go through duplicates and delete all but one of the images.

After I click Find Duplicates, I click on "Ref. images", then double click on
the first thumbnail to go into the Preview. As I'm navigating with left/right
arrow through the duplicates, I press Shift+Delete to delete one of them that's
clearly worse than the ones I've seen so far. I would like to repeat this
process until I end up with only one image.

The problem is that after I delete an image, digiKam unhelpfully displays
"Failed to load image" and kicks me out of that duplicate set. The keyboard
focus is also lost.

What would make a lot more sense is to let me navigate with the arrows through
the other images in the set of duplicates, and keep deleting them.

I've tried Alt+3 to set flags, and while this is a workaround, it's
unnecessary, I think. I don't see a good reason to take the user out of the
flow of deleting duplicates in a set after they've deleted the first one.
