Confused by Behaviour...

Post by gcoupe » 23 Sep 12 11:51

I'm viewing the Catalog by Folder in PS.

When I click on a Folder, either on the name, or in the space between the "Favourite" star symbol and the image count, then that element in the hierarchy gets highlighted in orange, and the Thumbnail panel shows the images in that folder, with the Path display at the top.

However, if I then click on the image count elsewhere in the Folder hierarchy, while the Thumbnail panel switches to show the images in the new path (and the Path display changes to reflect this), the orange highlight in the Folder hierarchy remains where it was.

I don't understand why the highlight doesn't move to the new point in the Folder hierarchy that I've selected?

Geoff, when you click on the counter, you get the recursive display of that folder, which is not the same as clicking on the folder name (or the blank space) itself. The latter will only give the images of that particular folder, without the content of sub folder.
One could indeed argue if the highlighted line should also change

Hert, thanks. I understand that one is the recursive display, while the other is the top-level display.

But it seems to me that the highlight should also track where the user has clicked in the hierarchy, or, alternative, the oval count becomes highlighted, rather than the complete bar when the recursive count indicator is clicked...

I also agree that the Highlight should track the location, in all instances. (catalogue Folders, catalogue Category, etc)

It can get very visually disconcerting to see see on thing highlighted and another displayed.
