  1. There's now v7.5 standalone, but completion for keywords (and people, and categories, and location data) still doesn't work (at least for me on Windows 10). How hard can it be to fix this essential feature? 🙄 Especially since it does work for a few other fields, such as collections.
  2. Daria, You're right, re-reading tags when run as administrator works. Thank you (still hoping for a proper fix though) Marco
  3. FWIW, I tried running v7 as administrator, but that didn't seem to make any difference.
  4. Daria, v6.7 was another guy replying to my (other) post… 😉 Cheers, Marco
  5. With Daminion standalone v7.0.0.2457 (and the v7.0 build I had before that), when I import images, everything appears to be in order (i.e., images show up), but apparently, no metadata is imported, the image section on the properties panel is empty, the image is not marked on the map based on its GPS coordinates, etc. For preexisting images, these things work. And for the newly imported ones, the "Show all metadata" option (via Exiftool?) expectedly shows the metadata the images definitely have... What's up? This is on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. Marco
  6. With Daminion standalone v7.0.0.2457 (and the v7.0 build I had before that), I don't get the completion/suggestions drop-down dialog when typing into the keywords and people fields. For other fields it works (e.g., collections, author, copyright). What's up? This is on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. Marco
  7. Oh, thanks, didn't catch that! :-)
  8. There's another issue (though I'm not sure if it was there before): Daminion no longer remembers the browser's sort order across sessions (always reverts to unsorted).

    Build 1660

    Could you please post that again? Asking because the link has expired and the post titled "Daminion Standalone and Home Server" leads to an older build. BTW, why do you make it so hard finding the latest download of the standalone version as opposed to the server one?
  10. I've also always had this behavior on my system, incomprehensibly: Windows 10 Pro, Core i7 74xx, NVIDIA GTX 970, 24 GB RAM, everything on a current SSD. Full images take a perceived 0.5 to 1 second to render. My 16 mega-pixel JPEGs are largish, saved at 97% quality and between 10 and 15 MB in size on average.
  11. Hello, When adding keywords to images by typing into the input field and maneuvering the suggestions list with the keyboard, Daminion v4.6 (#1481) will frequently crash when paging using [PgDn]. This results in an exception dialog with information like the following example: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: InvalidArgument=Value mit dem Wert 50 ist für SelectedIndex ungültig. Parametername: SelectedIndex bei System.Windows.Forms.ListBox.set_SelectedIndex(Int32 value) bei PicaJet.Daminion.GUIComponents.PropertyInspectorEx.IntelliSenseClass.OnTextBoxPreviewKeyDown(Object sender, PreviewKeyDownEventArgs e) in c:\DaminionAuto\Code\GUIComponents\Controls\PropertyInspectorEx\IntelliSense\IntelliSense.cs:Zeile 735. bei PicaJet.Daminion.GUIComponents.PropertyInspectorEx.TagEditors.TextBoxPro.OnTextBoxPreviewKeyDown(Object sender, PreviewKeyDownEventArgs e) in c:\DaminionAuto\Code\GUIComponents\Controls\PropertyInspectorEx\TagEditors\TextBoxPro.cs:Zeile 1032. bei System.Windows.Forms.PreviewKeyDownEventHandler.Invoke(Object sender, PreviewKeyDownEventArgs e) bei System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnPreviewKeyDown(PreviewKeyDownEventArgs e) bei System.Windows.Forms.Control.PreProcessControlMessageInternal(Control target, Message& msg) bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.ThreadContext.PreTranslateMessage(MSG& msg) Steps to reproduce: Select an image. In the properties panel, focus the input field for keywords and start typing some existing keyword. When the suggestions popup is displayed, page downwards using [PgDn]. In most cases, Daminion will crash towards the end of the list. If it does not crash, retry with some other keyword. Marco
  12. Didn't find that old thread, thanks for pointing it out. Too bad it doesn't look like anything's going to be done about it. :-/ I'm close to giving up on groups myself because of the tedium. You can also use Ctrl-T (expand/collapse group) with a selection of one or more groups, but having to do so is still tedious, and the action is inexplicably performed rather slowly with larger selections: apparently non-grouped images are also being inspected one by one.
  13. Currently, when editing tags in the Properties panel while a collapsed image group is selected changes only the tags of the first image in the group. Wouldn't it make more sense to apply the changes to all images in the group (seeing as they're probably group because of similarity)? Would it be possible to at least offer an option for this behavior? The reason I'm asking is that I rather frequently add tags to selections of images and often forget to check whether this includes any groups I need to expand first, not to speak of that it's needlessly cumbersome to have to do that in the first place.
  14. Actually, this happens more often than not, I often have to restart Daminion two times in a row until I get a working session. Is there a way to have the application create a verbose log of things going on (or failing to go on) in order to get to the bottom of this?
  15. 4. Properties panel remaining unpopulated despite images being selected: Had that again now with build #1478. Screenshot attached as proof. Having selected an image, the Properties panel on the right shouldn't remain empty and claim that no images are selected. Unfortunately, this cannot be reproduced reliably, and I keep assuming this is due to some race condition during application startup.
  16. OK, I've played around with the latest v4.6 build (#1471). Here's about the unfixed issues as per Alexey's response (thanks!): 1. Tags preset not applied on import: Works for me now, so fixed, perhaps unknowingly, perhaps there were some special circumstances when I initially encountered the issue with v4.5. 4. Properties panel remaining unpopulated despite images being selected: Haven't managed to trigger that with the new build either yet (maybe it's also been fixed, fingers crossed!). The issue was, however, not reliably reproducible with v4.5, either. When it happened, it manifested itself like this: Application gets started, I select an image, the Properties panel remains empty (noting that no files are selected). Nothing I did fixed this during the session, had to restart the application, sometimes repeatedly. Keeping an eye on this and reporting back if I encounter it again; however, without any clear indication as to what exactly it is triggered by, it'll be hard to fix. I'd have suspected some sort of race condition. 5. Synonyms not showing in Categories tree: You got me there, explicitly enabling them did it. I probably looked for the option by right-clicking the root, but it only comes up clicking any item within the tree. As for 6. Duplication of synonyms... I get the SQLite reasoning and won't argue with this. But wouldn't it be possible to hide this implementation-related detail from the user (and reduce UX clutter) by making those ASCII aliases implicit, maintaining them internally but not showing them? Also, there's still the matter of the synonyms duplication issue which I could replicate with the latest build. Importing a tags file like this: Keywords Foo {Bar} {bar} will result in "Foo" getting this list of synonyms in Daminion: "Bar", "bar", "bar". It probably happens because lowercase "bar" is added once as an explicit item as per the file and once as a synonym for "Bar", but as there can't possibly be a reason for this being intentional, couldn't you just add a duplicates-filtering step or some duplicates-avoiding logic to the process of importing tags?
  17. Thank you! I used the stand-alone version. I'll check with the latest pre-v4.6 build tonight if I can make time for it.
  18. Hello, I've played around with Daminion a bit more extensively these past days and have become rather fond if it, intending to switch my photo management over to it. However, I've also encountered a number of (minor) bugs I'd like to post in case they have not been reported by others yet. This is with the latest version (v4.5) and Windows 10 64-bit. Tags preset not applied on import: Whenever I imported images (without copying), my (default) preset (specifying copyright etc.) did not get applied despite the option having been selected. Tags preset "Apply" button remains grayed-out on immediate multiple-selection: When performing a search and then selecting all images via [Ctrl]-[A], the Tags preset "Apply" button remains grayed out. In order to be able to apply the preset to the selection, I first need to select an individual item (which enables the button) and then press [Ctrl]-[A]. Application of tags to entire list (> page size) does not work: When applying changed tags to a full selection of the images list with additional pages available, a dialog pops up whether to apply the changes to only the selection or the entire list of results (spanning multiple pages). No matter which option I select, the changes always get applied only to the current page's images. Properties panel remaining unpopulated despite images being selected: Throughout some sessions, the Properties panel will remain empty (claiming that now images are selected) despite images having been selected, no matter what. The only workaround is to restart the application, and often it requires multiple restarts until things work as expected. Synonyms not showing in Categories tree: While synonyms are shown in the Keywords tree, they are not shown in the Categories tree. Duplication of synonyms: Daminion automatically creates lower-case ASCII versions of keyword synonyms. It even does that for simply capitalized synonyms, the reasoning behind which I don't understand. In some circumstances (keywords import?) the auto-added synonym variants get duplicated, resulting in, e.g., a list ["Foo", "foo", "foo"] for the originally entered synonym "Foo", which is unnecessary clutter. Please fix the duplication and add an option suppressing the auto-adding of lower-case ASCII variants. Once you're at it, why not remove the confirmation dialog for deleting a synonym as the synonyms dialog has the option to abort (in case of errors) anyway? This confirmation makes manual clean-up unnecessarily bothersome. Catalog Tags panel at end of list on application restart: Not a bug per se but vexing nonetheless —- when the application is restarted, the Catalog Tags panel is scrolled to its very end. I'd much prefer it to start at the previous position, or at the very least, with all sub-sections collapsed. End-of-list, in contrast, is never where I'd want to interact with it from the start, meaning I need to scroll around at every start of a session. Cheers, Marco
