This may be a newcomer/experienced user tradeoff, but there's an aspect of the 
checkboxes that I don't like.  When categorizing photos, I used to be able to 
just type the first few letters of the category name, enough that the desired 
category came to the top, and then hit 'enter'.  Now I have to take my hands 
off the keyboard and reach for the mouse to click the checkbox.  That really 
slows me down.  I would suppose that the enter key could be made to toggle 
(or just set) the checkbox state.

Also, I normally keep the categories in the annotation dialog sorted in "last 
use" order, and that appears to be broken, or at least changed.  Particularly 
when adding "Persons", consecutive photos tend to have largely the same 
group, so the old way was very convenient.  After categorizing a handful of 
photos, the group of people was at the top of the list, making it easy to 
either click to select the ones in the current photo, or in many cases to 
type just the first letter of each name, hitting enter after each.

The tree view when in alphabetical order is nice, but I hardly ever use 
alphabetical order.

This is an SVN build from Saturday.

Thanks, Jesper,
