Making label/tags/comment columns clickable even with "full row select" set

Post by cadu » 15 Oct 2019 19:22

Hi,

I'd appreciate your help.

Up to the latest update v20.50.0100 I could have list view's "full row select" set but I was able to click on the label/tags/comment columns to add/remove content.

However, after v20.50.0100 update this is no more possible. If I want to interact with label/tags/comment columns directly I need to turn off "full row select".

Is it possible to reestablish the former behavior, making label/tags/comment/columns clickable even with "full row select" is set?

Thank you!

I missed this post, so I unfortunately created a similar post here, but your question answered mine.

Looks like this "solution" was not such a good idea:

Code: Select all

v20.40.0018 - 2019-09-27 13:39
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: On Full 
      Row Select there was a conflict about how to interpret a click, a 
      mousedown, and a mouse drag on those tag columns when "Toggle tags by 
      column click" was ON.
      Solution: From now on when the clicked item is already selected then 
      "Toggle tags by column click" is ignored on Full Row Select.
I think I will just make this configurable instead of making it dependent on being selected or not.

Works like a charm now, thank you!
Minor nuisance: when you right click on the tags field of a single item, the menu that allows you only to add tags. When you select multiple items and right click, the full menu appears instead (you can add, edit, delete, copy and find). Can you fix it?

That difference only occurs when Configuration | Information | Tags | Apply tagging to all selected items is ticked and I think it makes sense like this.

I see, but let me play the devil's advocate: why I wouldn't want to edit or remove adds from a single item?

My previous statement was slightly lacking: What makes the difference is whether the clicked item (or any of the selected items, if "Apply tagging to all selected items" is ON) has a tag already. Otherwise the extended menu makes no sense. I still think it's okay as it is.

But there was a little bug whereby the large menu was shown even if none of the selected items had a tag. That's fixed in the next beta.

Thanks for the fix, now the behaviour makes entirely sense! :tup:

Thanks for the improvement!
I've attached a screenshot pointing to the related setting.

Maybe the tweaks I made in color theme?
