Do you launch Similarity in portable mode ? If so this file located in same directory as exe module.

1. You can already chnage color Options - Display - Marked Item.
2. It very rarely used feature most time user just clear all list.

Bugs / Re: Slow scanning even with cache
« on: March 07, 2016, 20:02:17 »
I do not understand why clicking a tag in review mode is so slow, while clicking the same tag in the folder view shows me the actions in under a second.

e.g. I have one tag that has 19 items. In folder view 1 second in review mode it takes 14 seconds.

What I get to see is exactly the same data but why does it take such a different time to load the list?

What do you mean by review mode and folder view (first tab with folders doesn't show tags) ?

Yes, indeed cache helps to skip decoding and preproceesing file procedure, but the time for this procedure is linear, ie calculated only once per file.
Here example, just pretend we have more realistic very fast computer what can prepare 10 caches in 1 sec and compare 100K fingerprints in 1sec.
N[(N+1)*N/2 / 1000000 / 3600][N * 10 / 3600]% preparing time
10000 files0,14 hours0,28 hours66,66 %
100000 files13,89 hours2,78 hours16,67 %
300000 files125,00 hours8,33 hours6,25 %
1000000 files1388,90 hours27,78 hours1,96 %
You see for larger files amount caching importance is decreasing.
This calculation is idealistic without duration skip mechanism (disabled).

Wishlist / Re: Script Market
« on: February 29, 2016, 17:02:42 »
It's too early to integrate such feature into Similarity, you can always use forum for such task. One imperceptible pitfall of scripting is security reasons on file operations, Similarity doesn't check and can't to forbid what files allowed to read/write and what not. Even without direct access to text files, some hacker can use core file enumerating functional as a security breach.
And this is one of the reasons of new OSX version delay, Apple don't like scripting in the programs (same security reasons) if you plan to distribute via AppStore.

Wishlist / Re: Improve The "Rating" Algorithm
« on: February 29, 2016, 16:45:37 »
The new version of Similarity has possibility to implement own rating calculation algorithm with JavaScript, see analysis.js. But source values to rating can be used only from other analysis tab fileds.

With new version you can write own rating calculation algorithm with scripts see analysis.js example.
And clicks never accounted in rating calculation, see

Wishlist / Re: PDF output.

Why you can't just use CSV format ) and Excel/Calc. You can always write any exportable text format with script.

Will be implemented in future versions

About file operation we think.
'unique' marking can be created by scripting.
"Ability to play the file in the external player instead of internal one" just uncheck in Options "Use internal audio-player"

Wishlist / Re: The database growth are prevented.

We planning to Purge Cache button to check validness of cache in fututre.

You can always sort by any field, it over-complication to do sub-selection.
Maybe just adding in future versions Ctrl-F to search in the selected fields will be enough.
