History

#1 Updated by Harrissou Santanna over 4 years ago

There's a "Remove" button in Settings menu --> Options --> Data sources tab. what do you mean by "unclear"?

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 4 years ago

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

I also found the option. However, I think it is incoherent to be able to hide with a right click, and be required to go to Options to unhide.

Yeah sorry about that. Was a bit of a oversight on UX on my part. Will be fixed.

How does this look?

#5 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 4 years ago

Fine to me. Perhaps worth asking UX team?
Thanks.

Is it expected to list all the folders that are hidden or just their main parent, according to the current position?
I mean, if I have ten folders hidden (3 in H:/ and 7 in G:/), will I have:

  • the ten folders listed ?
  • or taking your example, just G:/ and H:/ listed
    • and once I unhide G:/ and right-click on G:/, it lists G:/ hidden subfolders and just H:/? A kind of cascading process (with relative path)

I don't know if it's worth all this and if users will hide many folders but it can be unreadable to have all hidden files listed in the context menu.

#7 Updated by Nathan Woodrow over 4 years ago

That is a good point. I was just going to list all hidden paths even if they share the same parent.

Maybe just the first 10 and then have the options dialog open for the rest, as a Show More...

#11 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 2 years ago

This I forgot - sorry I'm keeping on checking, and did not look at further comments.

#12 Updated by Nathan Woodrow over 2 years ago

I forgot about this one. Will get it sorted for 3.2.

#13 Updated by Stefan Overkamp about 2 years ago

I'm not able to clear or change the option browser - hiddenPaths manually. After opening the expanded options dialog the old value appears.
