File Info Tips and Info Panel does not support extra tags.

Post by wenmin92 »

I made some extra tags, some of them do not need to be displayed, they are only used to record metadata.
Sometimes I want to view them. At present, I can only display the whole column to see the value. I think it will be more convenient if File Info Tips and Info Panel support viewing extra tags.

Well, there doesn't seem to be Extra Tags(Columns) in the list, am I missing something?

Next beta has it. Cool feature actually. I wonder how I haven't done it long ago.

It's so efficient.
Note: File Info Tips and Info Panel are two different functions. It is best to support both, the former for quick viewing and the latter for copying or editing.

The Info Panel has not enough space for this.

Maybe have sub-level tabs like the Find Files or Report tab?
Or, it would be acceptable to show only extra tags with values.

A button could pop a list where they can be viewed and edited.

Wow, does such a button exist? Can't wait to experience it.

Another small question related to this topic: Can multi-line comment be displayed in File Info Tips with line breaks?
To distinguish them from other attributes, it would be more obvious to put some spaces or something in front of each line.

Not yet, but there is space enough for such a button on Info Panel / Tags. I will add it after 22.00 is released.

I'll see if that's possible...

OK, possible, done.

However, now the tooltip can get very high easily, higher than the window, so that anything below is not visible. Not sure how to handle this. One (not very good) idea would be to limit the displayed number of lines per tag. Better ideas?

Sorry, I don't really understand what "per tag" means.

If I am correct, it should be that only the comment field is multi-line, do you mean limiting the number of lines of the comment field displayed?

Actually, I think there could be no limit, if the tooltip becomes very high, the user will adjust it himself, for example, by reducing the number of fields displayed in the tooltip. Also, I've briefly tested that if the height of the tooltip exceeds the height of the Window, the tooltip can still be displayed in its entirety.
