Release Notes - returning to "selected object?"
Posted: 06-Jun-2020 21:52
 
  Click to reply to this thread Reply
In the release notes for 20.2, it is stated,

jAlbum now remembers and navigates to the last selected object when loading a project
(configurable under Preferences)


What is a "selected object?" Where is it found under Prefs? I had hoped it would take me back to where I left-off when editing an album but not, or, I don't have the option properly selected.

Thanks.

Tools > Preferences > General > Remember last selected item.

If you have a multi-level album, and the last thing you were messing with was four levels down in the folder structure, when you open the project again, it should take you back there.

Even in a simple album, if, when you closed the project, the thumbnail for mydog.jpg was selected and highlighted, when you open the project again, that thumbnail will still be highlighted.

It appears to be as I thought but I can not find the setting in Tools > Prefs

I have check-marked,
  • Remember last window position and size
  • Remember last selected item
They were actually on by default.

OK, so it's turned on. Is it not working?

(David - I suggest changing the checkbox to read Remember last selected object. Album objects are referred to virtually everywhere as "objects," not as "items.")

Must be an OS problem. Works fine in Windows and macOS.

But to be clear, this doesn't refer to things like settings panels. It's not going to open up to the same panel again. This refers only to album objects - folders, images, videos, etc.

I think this was a matter of my mis-understanding and not closely watching. When I open jAlbum, I just see the list pane and blankness in the Filename pane. Now I see that if I select a project on the left, I'm back to where I left off.

THANKS.

(It's not Linux fault, it's mine.)
