            Bug ID: 380521
           Summary: Show only assigned leafmost tags of hierarchical tags
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.4.0
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Thumbnails
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: jaakko.luttinen at iki.fi
  Target Milestone: ---

I really like hierarchical tags. Let's assume I have the following hierarchy:

- Parent
  - Child1
  - Child2

If I tag an image with Child2, I would expect that Parent tag is implicitly
given too. I suppose that's optional in digikam, so be it. But in Thumbnails
view, I wouldn't want to see any parent tags of a chosen child tag. So in my
example, the thumbnail view would show only Child2 tag, but not Parent tag
(even though it's assigned too). Because I'm using the hierarchies a lot and
sometimes rather deep, I get a huge amount of tag labels in each image although
I have only chosen perhaps 1-3 leaf tags. This is really annoying.

I don't quite understand the use case for assigning a child tag but not its
parents. But I guess some people like to do that and they probably want then to
see all the assigned tags. I would rather assign the parent tags implicitly but
only show the assigned leaf tags (or assigned tags which have no assigned child
tags). So I would hope there at least would be an option for Thumbnails view to
hide those tags that have child tags that have been assigned too.

I hope I was able to describe this clearly. Does this make sense to you?
