Author Topic: Select Folders for inclusion from the Folder Contents pane.  (Read 10209 times)

On the Folders tab, looking at the file tree, selecting (clicking to highlight) a folder displays the contents of that folder in the pane at the right.  (Do not confuse this with checking/unchecking the "include this one" box to the left of the folder icon in the tree).

Multiple files and folders displayed in the right pane may then be selected (highlighted) using shift and control keys while clicking.

Now that I have several folders selected in the contents pane, I want a way to check the corresponding "include this one" boxes back in the folder tree.

Somethings could be put on the right click menu for the selected item, "include selected", "exclude selected", "invert include/exclude for selected".

Perhaps a keyboard key (space?) could toggle the check boxes of the selected items.

I hope this is a good enough description of the problem.  I'd gladly add more (a example from a screen shot?) if you can ask me some question.

Thanks!

You mean add checkboxes in right panel or something different ?

Looks like the [img] tag is disabled, so you will have to click the links  :(

I've located a folder in the (left hand top) Tree Pane (_M)

https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B0tbUZRv8FYlOTgxNTZiOTMtZGVjNi00YmQ2LTk0MjgtYzliMzI2NTA0OGU5&sort=name&layout=list&num=50

Now I've selected my desired folders in the (right hand side) Contents Pane (Connie Smith, Patsy Cline)
 
https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B0tbUZRv8FYlOTI1ZTEyZmQtOGVmZi00ZmU3LWJlYWEtOTk0MWNjM2UwODVl&sort=name&layout=list&num=50

Next <something magical> happens (my suggestion), and the boxes for those folders are now checked.  They also now appear in the Selected Folders Pane.

https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B0tbUZRv8FYlZjZiZjJjYjEtYWMwYy00YjY4LTlkZDYtOGVlMTFmNjUxODYy&sort=name&layout=list&num=50

The something magical might be
  • (with the cursor in the Contents Pane)
     "right click" "Check All Selected", or
  • (with the keyboard focus in the Contents Pane)
     pressing Ctrl+S key combination, or
  • ? ? ?

If you do update the right click menu, please also add "Select All (Ctrl+A)"

I cheated a bit between screen 1 and 2. 

The sub-folders of _M should not have been expanded in screen 2.  (Or, I need a screen 1.5 showing the click on the "+" to expand them.  ;))

The expansion would happen as the boxes are checked, which would make them visible if they already were not.

You are very quick to view my post!  I have replaced the images with color versions.

Thanks!
