Audio PAUSE/PLAY shortcut ? (and a few more)
« on: June 13, 2017, 06:22:02 am »
Hello at Camera Bits,

I believe Photo Mechanic is a stable, mature piece of software and Iíve been a user almost 15 years now.
IMO there are 3 missing features Iíd really like to see :

1)  a PAUSE/PLAY shortcut for audio files attached to a picture. The play /stop button is hidden in the IPTC Dialog box and I feel itís not an appropriate place to access it. Also the stop button is not a PAUSE, thatís what we need to transcript a long series of names. This shortcut MUST be available from the contact sheet mode and/or the preview mode, not just inside IPTC dialog box.

2) Please ADD AUDIO FILES filter option into the dropdown menu listing ALL / SELECTED / TAGGED / UNTAGGED Ė Often I just want to see and tag quickly the pictures with the audio files, not SORT then (my actual work around now)

3) In the INGEST dialog box, please add an option to ingest only AUDIO FILES (in the RAW-NonRAW dropdown list) Ė sometimes I miss-set my camera and the audio files get saved on my second back-up card in camera, it would be a time saver to have this option that I could save in a snapshot and use on occasion.

Those features would help save us time on a photojournalist deadline.

Many thanks for you continued improvement commitment of your software.

I'd love to have this as well!
