Filter Issues + Suggestion

Post by etc » Tue Jul 01, 2014 8:00 pm

Export the filters;
Reset the filters;
Export the reset filters;
Compare the two exported files and merge the update changes.

Issue 1:
Now I want to clear all the filters and import mine.
But the default filter "Everything" can not be deleted, even after I changed something in it.
This one should be deletable, since it is editable.

Issue 2:
Then change the name of the default filter "Everything" to "--";
Import my filters, including:
"EVERYTHING",0,0,0,0,0,"",,704
After imported, this one is also named "--".
So now there are two named "--".

Issue 3:
After exported, the two in the file are still "EVERYTHING", not "--".


Suggestion:
Add a "Copy" button. So we can create a new filter based on an existed one.

Issue 1:

But the default filter "Everything" can not be deleted, even after I changed something in it.
This one should be deletable, since it is editable.
This is a bug, Importing filters is causing duplicated Everything filters.
There should only ever be one Everything filter and it should be undeletable.
I have fixed this for the next beta update.
Issue 2:
Then change the name of the default filter "Everything" to "--";
Import my filters, including:
"EVERYTHING",0,0,0,0,0,"",,704
After imported, this one is also named "--".
So now there are two named "--".

Issue 3:
After exported, the two in the file are still "EVERYTHING", not "--".
The Everything filter is a special filter.
It is always referenced by the name "EVERYTHING".
Use the Everything.ini setting filter_everything_name to change the display name of the Everything filter.
Suggestion:
Add a "Copy" button. So we can create a new filter based on an existed one.
Added to my "Things to do" list. This will need to be done after the next major release.

A minor issue:

Import my filters, including:
"EVERYTHING",0,0,0,0,0,"",,704

704 = Alt+`

But after imported, the shortcut is displayed as:
Alt+Right Mouse Button
(514, if saved to a csv file.)
