advanced search shortens pathname (Build 2014)

Recommended Posts

Spaces within in folder names work fine for me (at least in Build 1988 and before), but I suspect the the single quote in Lok's doing something bad (possibly in combination with a space subsequently following?). Can you try what happens, if you rename Lok's to Loks?

I'm astonished to see backslashes in your file path (Windows, right?). Smacks of Linux.

 

Try renaming "Bahnhof Naumburg" to Bahnhof_Naumburg or camelcase BahnhofNaumburg to kill the space. Perhaps also for "eigene Bilder". (I personally avoid spaces and diacriticals as in ä or é…)

Try directly typing the search path into the box, using slashes / or escaped backslashes: \\

Try quoting the path: "D:\ eigene … Naumburg", or with single quotes 'D: … Naumburg'.

 

Of course it should work without having to jump through these hoops, but it could reveal the nature of the problem. Good luck!

 

And then Lok's would be a genitive, as in "Werther's Leiden", not a plural. Just pulling your leg, Egon. 😉

To me, the backslash (\) is the normal way in Windows and the forward slash only exceptionally used ...? In any case, Egon did not enter the path manually, but it was generated by the Daminion client after selecting the folder in the folder tree (green dot in his first screen shot).

Good suggestion. Just to find out, whether the space was indeed the cause of the problem. As I said above, I have plenty of spaces in folder names, but never saw this behavior.

Agree! This also caused trouble to me when defining external programs to be used for Open With ... .  If the folder of file name contains special characters, Daminion passes those as UTF-8 double (or even triple) bytes in the command line. For example 'ä' appears as '├ñ'

Hello everybody,
thanks for the suggestions.
But the search brings, despite the wrong display in the search box, the correct result.
So it's "just" a false display.
Too bad that the
guys from Daminion have no opinion.

Hello Daria,

what can I say. It obviously does not work if the lowest path name contains numbers, consists only of numbers or the path name contains "German umlauts"

we cannot reproduce this behavior on any of our catalogs\paths. It works just fine with the spaces

As I said above, having spacing spaces in the path, always worked fine with me and it seems to me as a limitation, when the path is too long (or the dialog window too narrow).

Egon, did you try to resize the dialog, by placing the mouse pointer over the right border of the dialog and when it changes to a double arrow (↔), hold the button and pull to the right? This did work for me.

Before resizing:

Then Daminion should show the search window big enough.

Egon, it seems, after resizing the dialog, Daminion remembers the new size even after ending and starting the client again.
