can I add new favourite to "end" of list?
« on: March 11, 2009, 07:00:57 AM »
didnt add any new favourites for months

when I added a new item lately to favourites it took over the #1 position -
this means the shortcuts for all other items in favourites changes.
I'd gotten very used to my small bunch of favourites so I keep pasting the wrong ones now!

Is there a way to change this sequence or
could you change this so as in future new items automatically go to the end of the list/queue?

thanks :)
Tom

currently it's not possible to do -- but i will try to figure out a way to add this -- i know what you mean about wanting to be able to preserve/customize the order of items.

bump :)

Summary:
it would be great if new favourites were added to the end of the list - that way, there would be less changing of numbers making it easier to use

this is now possible, but upgraders have to do a couple of steps to make a couple of changes that new users have set by default.

hmmm,
this is not working here -
I'm not sure if I'm an upgrader - I moved out (renamed) the old version and then reinstalled in the old empty folder

my settings are the same as in your image (by default) - except the value is 2000 not 3000 (so I changed that, but makes no difference)



but when I add a new clip it goes to top of the list - would I have to add ascending or decending to that?

Ok let's see..

So by default clips are ordered with most recent ones at top -- you almost certainly don't want to change that globally.  You just want your FAVORITES to be sorted in reverse order from this.

So what you could do is go to the FAVORITES group, and change *that* Custom Menu Sorting SQL to:
Ordering,CreationDateTime DESC

That would by default sort your Favorites menu with oldest at top.

(Note you can also set a custom hotkey to pop up just favorites menu).

---

The other thing you could do instead (or in addition to) is set manual Ordering values for all items in your Favorites group, to order them exactly the way you want them.

Thanks mouser :Thmbsup:

I think that should be the default sort for the Favourites list - it is a permanent list, and as such one (me, anyways) would expect newer items to be added to the end of the list. Or simply a manual sort where the clip most recently added to Favourites goes to the bottom the list.

=> How do you make the sorting manual ?


there's some nice stuff in that other thread btw, have yet to try stack (but going for the "images" beta first :-*

+10! I suppose, that there is no any user, who would not agree with it.
Plus it will be fine to get support for simple manually re-sorting of Favorites clips with drag-and-drop with mouse, because the current way via manually setting priorities is quite sophisticated.
