filtering options would be nice, although i probably only would use one showing what needs attention and what has been added correctly. concerning the attention needing items some kind of info about this and the amount of in the sidescrollerbar on the homescreen would be nice.
- I would like to add some filtering functionality to the list. Most people for example will not be interested in what was successfully imported several days ago. Or may just want to see a list of stuff that needs their attention. How do you imagine yourself using the importer?
as its said nowadays, stupid numbers are stupid i personally would love to see them gone not only for style reasons but also for the reason of a better overview in the menues. but as mbuzina stated they are kinda useful concerning faster selection, but not really if you don't know them by heart and if the skin only shows 5 of them and the rest is only shown by scrolling down to the 2 following pages of options (like in mytvseries with 15 entries for example with submenues containing even more entries...) until you see them... so maybe if the several options the contextmenus offer should/could be reduced to a minimum (with better structured submenues - some points maybe could be put to the gui settings in the future since this is slowly starting now) and there won't be the need of numbers anymore.
- Can those stupid numbers leading each dialog entry be removed? They look horrible and provide seemingly little function.
to qoute you "Bear in mind not all users are pro like you. ", so probably headers would be useful, sth like "Actual Filename" and "Matched Title" although it should be clear, but since we still use headers for movietitles and other "obvious" stuff on other places...
- Do we need column headers for the list?
I'm sorry but I think a popup is a little too intrusive. I feel like popups should be reserved for things that demand immediate attention. Plenty of information is being supplied to the skin though so with some skin tweaks you could have a flashy notification with some animation to indicate that some files need attention.I'd like to have an optional pop-up message that's shown when you enter Moving Pictures (or even restrict it to Moving Pictures->Latest added movies) that says "Importer needs your attention for #items, open importer now? YES/NO". Default is NO, so it can be quickly dismissed for higher WAF. This is also why it should be optional.
I will try to get an "Ignored Files" tab added for the next build. They are just handled a little differently than other stuff and I ran out of time this weekend.So you can show the ignored files as well? Great work!
I am still undecided about this, but I will add some translation strings so that skin designers can make this choice for themselves.probably headers would be useful, sth like "Actual Filename" and "Matched Title" although it should be clear, but since we still use headers for movietitles and other "obvious" stuff on other places...
1 - Which three dots? Too subtle IMO. It acts as a kind of tabbing, so you can make it a bit more visible. They mean something.
- How do you like the three dots?
- Is the use of backdrops too distracting here?
I assume the icon on the right gives you information on how confident of a match the movie is, and if you want to change a movie you click enter on it which will bring up a context menu with 'approve' / 'skip' / 'change' (choose from list of close matches) / 'search' (two text boxes, one for year one for name) @fforde is this how it works?One question: how can you select from multiple matched movies? For me it often mismatches because of year issues (my files contain the recording date, not the original date). If there is a list of matched movies available as well (shown as pop-up on enter/click?) I would like to have more info on each of them as well (title/year/imdb_id/summary/actors/director)
I also like the idea from @edterbak.
