Preload import destination folder path when drag and drop file

Recommended Posts

Hi,

(1) In a catalog, a folder is selected and items are displayed
(2) When you drag and drop files into thumbnail display
(3) and import window is opened but with another folder destination path (4) !!!

When you drag and drop files, It would be nice to preload import folder destination path (4) with drag and drop folder path.

Regards

According to my understanding, dragging a file to the thumbnail area is meant to import new items (i.e. the same as Add Files ... Ctrl+I) into the catalog, but not to move items already known in the catalog.

Not sure, what your intention was, when you dragged an item. If you want to to move it from one folder to another, the correct way would be Item -> Export -> Copy to folder ... F7 .

You can choose action you want in import window. (Copy, move, ...)

My intention was to Copy a file from windows explorer (USB Card) into a folder already displayed in Daminion.

but Import window suggest another destination folder.

Ah know I understand, the 2 in your screen shot shows the Windows explorer not the Daminion catalog.   Seems the Import Dialog always shows the last destination folder and does not care, if you selected another folder in the thumbnail view.

I agree, it would be helpful, if the path would be pre-filled with the currently selected folder. However, the thumbnail is usually based on other selections, instead of the content of a single folder.

Yes, I agree that when thunbnail view is the result of a single folder selection, import folder path in import window should be pre-filled with the current selected folder.
