#12214 new defect

do not load everything when going to a directory from "import images"

Reported by: richlv Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version: tested
Keywords: Cc:


click the "open" button, enter some directory path in the "file name" field, hit enter - file dialog goes to that directory, nothing else happens. good.

right click an opened gpx, choose "import images". enter some directory path in the "file name" field, hit enter - it starts to load eeeeeeverything from that directory down.

it makes it impossible to quickly type or paste some path in that field to browse further from it, and is also inconsistent.

it would be really great if it would just go to that directory, like the "open" action does :)

This is the con when the image importer allows to select a directory, which is then scanned recursively.

could it be changed so that entering the url in the input field and hitting enter would only change to that directory, but selecting a directory and clicking "open" would scan it recursively ?
as in, do different thing depending on where the focus is, if that can be determined.

The file chooser permits little customizations. You might want to try use.native.file.dialog = true in the advanced preferences to use a different one.

ah, that looked like a great thing, but unfortunately it uses gtk dialogs for me - kde ones might be possible, but that seems to be more complicated
