Hi, I was wondering why QGIS Browser Standalone and QGIS Browser separate app do not work exactly the same. I was trying to add a folder to favourite and I thought that wasn't possible until I tried within QGIS itself. It seems rather strange that the same functionality is actually not working.

I dont't see why you create a ticket for this. They are separate apps that share a good portion of the code base. If there is something missing from either you should file a feature request ticket. For this particular case, it's probably because the browser in QGIS has received more attention recently.

Now it's not clear to me which one does not have this functionality - the browser in QGIS or the Browser standalone app?

#2 Updated by Antonio Locandro about 10 years ago

The standalone one does not have the same behaviour, in my opinion they should both work the same, it's confusing it isn't. Maybe something that should be addressed in the UI/UX list. I would see no reason why they would behave differently.

Feel free to address this on the UI list. I for one feel no need to maintain the standalone browser app, when (almost) everything can be done in the browser dock inside QGIS.

#6 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 7 years ago

Standalone browser have been removed from QGIS3 code base and the decision was to not do any fix/enhancement for the 2.18.* releases. If the issues/feature request do also apply to the QGIS browser (the one integrated in the main program) please file again the issue/feature request using "Browser (QGIS Desktop)" as category. Thanks.
