why is "building similarity data" necessary

I've just copied the PSu catalog & thumb databases from my working PC to a netbook for offline use while away. The first activity that has sprung to life is a very time consuming "building similarity data". Why is this activity necessary when the databases should be identical? All I'm wanting to do ...

Re: Phrase search: How to use quotes in the search bar?

Stefan - how do we "vote" on bugs? My understanding is that the search text is passed to the underlying database FTS (Free Text Search) engine, where the search rules are beyond the control of PSu. For example with SQlite my understanding is that double quote characters are treated as token delimite...

Re: Re-date Panel advice needed

Was re-dating in Grid view using key combination ctrl+shift+D added in 3.0.3.2066? I notice it now works! Bravo.

Re: Re-date Panel advice needed

Malcolm asked "I have noticed that the re-date panel (CTRL-SHIFT-D) only appears on the thumbnail view, not in the detail view"

It would be a small but excellent improvement for some. I asked once before a time time ago too.

Re: Photo Supreme, an alternative to Paperless or Paperport?

I tried using PSu as a more general document management system for a few years, mainly for PDF files, but also for Microsoft Office document files. PDFs work well with PSu because Adobe generates a nice thumbnail for each one just like a JPG. However I gave up in the finish because it was simply too...

Re: V3: After refreshing folder, switches to catalog view

After I do a folder Verify a new tab is created with the verified files but the original folder tab is preserved. I think its a neat idea now that multiple tabs are supported.

Re: Malcontent Search Bar

New users log bugs in Matis without moaning about it. I really try not to sound like I'm moaning. I'm a programmer and use ticketing/ bug reporting systems on a daily basis. They are essential for any serious products development. Mantis says I've logged 99 bugs. I have spent a considerable amount ...

Re: Malcontent Search Bar

I'm glad this forum topic hadn't instead been placed in Mantis. It is an interesting topic, I think I learnt something, and (as I've commented at least once before) I would imagine far fewer people would view Mantis bugs than discussions in this forum. It is often far from clear whether an issue is ...

Re: Sequence number when renaming

That's brilliant. I had no idea things like "reset=date" were possible. Tom has already asked, although no reply yet, is there any online reference documentation for this?

locking of topics

Hert - you locked a topic I created yesterday <what does "locking" portfolio collection do?> preventing my reply. As I've mentioned on at least one other occasion A) I wanted other users to be aware of my experience - many (most?) casual users may not be using/ aware of Mantis B) I wasn't confident ...

Re: what does "locking" portfolio collection do?

Further to my last post after some more testing... when I attempt to delete a locked portfolio collection (not just a thumbnail as in previous post) (either by pressing Delete key or selecting Delete from the context menu) an unnecessary msgbox is displayed asking "Are you sure you want to delete......

what does "locking" portfolio collection do?

The quote below is copied from the only topic I could find on the subject (IDI not PSu) but I think it is still relevant... I've found that the collection lock in build 154 doesn't lock everything. It locks against changing the manual sort order, but it doesn't lock against other changes including d...

Re: Collection lock

I've found that the collection lock in build 154 doesn't lock everything. It locks against changing the manual sort order, but it doesn't lock against other changes including deletion and version assignment. Is it possible to have the lock make a collection completely read-only (no changes of any s...
