Share your best find in version 6

Post by Jesperben » 17 Feb 21 8:59

Hi all

What is an important or just very nice feature in version 6? Please share your finds with the forum!

My best find in my first 15 minutes is the editor in the description box in the details panel (a little pencil in the top left corner). I have really missed that. (But I would like at bigger character size).

What did you find?

Maybe I'm not the one to reply here, but hey, I'm a user too!!

I personally love the new lock option for a box in the Light Table.

Cool that you've found it, but it was present in V5 too :)

Yes, I noticed it right from the start. I am not completely sure about the use and advantage though. Will study further.

The metadata standard specifies that for some fields it must be possible to enter texts in different languages. Mainly to allow sharing metadata with an audience that read different languages. Professionals could, for instance, send a description in different languages to different news agencies around the world.

It is now much easier to read the number of images in a category.

Typed areas are nice.

Is it possible somehow to batch change areas of your dog to animal?

That's useful. It would be cool if there was a language indicator to show that an entry in a non-default language exists, since additional languages aren't displayed unless that language is selected. Something like this?

A batch change facility would be cool, as would a shortcut for each type...

Select multiple thumbs and identical metadata fields for every selected thumb will have their values pre-filled

That doesn't seem to be working here - build 3546 / Win 8.1...

Ah - yes it does - it's just that the blue 'corner' indicators don't show up (as, indeed, shown in your illustration). Any chance of adding them?
