I guess I have an amazing knack for uncovering software problems. Not that this is a good thing. But I still can't get a job as a software tester. Go figure.
Anyway, I'm using Directory Opus 126.96.36.199 under WinXP. Since I am a new user, I found myself creating a bunch of favorites. I noticed that at some point, DOpus began doing something strange with the favorites as I'd add them: I'd tell it to put it in one favorites group, but instead of putting it in that group, it would create a new group of the same name, with the new group a subfolder of another group, and put the new favorite there instead.
The author said he could not reproduce this problem.
So, I turned once again to my trusty VMware, and a 100% clean copy of WinXP. I reproduced the issue immediately, and made a video of it. The attached ZIP archive contains an AVI file that uses the standard Microsoft Video 1 codec.
I begin with two groups of Favorites--one is named C: and the other is named D:. In the video, you can very plainly see what happens:
1. I select a folder in the tree, then select Favorites > Add to Favorites.
2. I very definitely select the D: group (at 00:03 for those following along), and click OK. You can see in the video at this point that there are no other groups present.
3. I go to Favorites > Edit Favorites, and find that rather than having the new favorite placed in the D: group I selected, DOpus has created a new group named D: (under the preexisting group named C:), and placed the new favorite there.
Can anyone else reproduce this?
