small bugs in recent update

Post by helge33 »

Nice update with some long awaited features like a search function for places and custom view options at least now possible via Apple script. I can now have script to switch from my photo- to a music database and change the list colums in one script like:

Code: Select all

tell application "NeoFinder"
	set database folder path to "/Users/myname/Pictures/NeoFinder Catalog/"
	
	set list view XMP state to false
	set list view XMP location to false
	.. etc.
There are 2 bugs with this:
  • there is no list view for keywords in the apple script directory?
  • the column "Video Bitrate" is always visible and cannot be de-selected

There is no separate XMP Keywords field, just the combined "Keywords" field which also shows the Finder Tags in the List View.

Thanks for the notice about the Video bitrate column, that is indeed a bug that will be fixed ASAP.

I am having trouble with my "smart folders". All the special rules I have created have disappeared. There is now blank fields where I had carefully written rules to find based on several criteria. Mostly labels. In the screen grab below, I created a "smart folder" in my previous version of Neofinder that had the following parameters.
All of the following are true
every catalog file
kind is raw
label is "red"
All of these have been wiped by the new update.
When I try to create the rules the "label is... " part does not work. Other parameters work, for example exif data.
However the pre-baked ones that come with the app still work?

Make sure to use the new NeoFinder 8.4.1. it fixes this.

Yes, Keywords can be coded in several ways but nevertheless I would like to control the visibility in list view via Apple script. Apparently that's not possible? The Apple Script dictionary has not entry for list view...keyword

Thanks for the quick update. The VideoBitrate has now disappeared..
