All, I have aquestion about behavior of the lighttable view:
Let’s say I set up a few collect rules (folder: X && tag: Y) to find a specific image. I find the image I am looking for and click on it, so it’s selected. Then I remove one of those rules so many more images are now displayed (remove the condition tag: Y). Upon removal of the rule my selected image is no longer in view, instead it has moved way down such that I have to scroll to find it again.
QUESTION: Is there a way that I can have the lighttable view immediately scroll to the position of the selected image?
The use case is as follows: I have a few hundred photos in a folder, which I reviewed, edited, and ranked/tagged years ago. I’m in a mood to re-review the photos and try re-editing some particular favorites. I can easily find my past favorites by collecting based on tag or rank, but I then want to be able to see all the other shots around this image, that may be similar and good candidates for new edits (maybe a shot I dismissed previously catches my eye now…). To be able to see these other, non-ranked/tagged images I remove the collect rule that narrowed things down for me initially. When I do so I just get lost in the hundreds of images again, not really saving me any time.
Or another example, I have an image run through enfuse, and tagged with “enfuse”. I collect based on that tag, find the enfused image, but now I want to see the 3 or 5 source photos for that image. Removing the filter for tag:
enfuse" gets me lost in a jumble of hundreds of photos again where I have to scroll through to find the images/
FEATURE REQUEST: In my opinion it would be desirable for the selected image to stay “in view” when a filter is removed from the collect module. This should be achievable by adjusting the scroll bar’s location accordingly when a filter is removed.
If others feel the behavior described above is desirable then I will submit a redmine feature request.
