| Hello Jesper,
| today I tried to select multiple entries from one of the list boxes by typing
| some letters. That way I wasn't able to select multiple entries from the list
| (I tried it in the search dialog).
To search for Jesper and Anne Helene, type
Jesper is completed
It says Jesper&
It says Jesper & Anne Helene.
I do agree that this is not too obvious and for the next release a message
box will tell you when you enter the dialog.
| Here come's the second version of my proposal:
| You like your kind of sorting. To me (perhaps to other users as well) it's not
| that obvious and perhaps not that straight forward.
| So what about asking the user how to sort? I could think of several ways to do
| Let's have a context menu for sorting, available at each list box (momentarily
| it offers renaming, etc. for an selected item; it could have some sorting
| entries as well): "sort by most recent use", "sort by name".
| Alternatively you could have a sort toggle button near every list box. One
| state is for "sort by most recent use" (showing an calendar icon), the other
| one is "sort by name" (showing a letter).
| Or you could have both.
| You also could integrate the way of sorting into to kimdaba config dialog
| where you define the picture categories.
| I'd like the idea to have different ways to configure sorting and to save this
| info with the kimdaba index.xml file.
| Is this something you could think about?
Yeah I'll think about it ;-)
Seriously, I'll put this on the TODO list, and see when time permits.
I do agree that from time to time sorting alph. could be useful.
