Customise Toolbar PM6?
« on: March 25, 2019, 02:51:05 AM »
Mac version PM6 and can't seem to find a way to customise the contact sheet toolbar to add the uploader icon to it. PM5 had a right click option to edit.

It's still there, right click on an empty space.

The toolbar in the Contact Sheet window no longer exists in Photo Mechanic 6.  It is not customizable.

Ok Kirk thanks for the response. Disappointing to hear that nevertheless.

Would like to have had the option to reinstate the spotlight search and uploader tool from PM5.

Spotlight never worked very well and would interfere with the Catalog features of Photo Mechanic Plus so it was removed.

Is this why "Show Toolbar" & "customize toolbar" in the menus aren't clickable? I was also looking to find the search option again but those don't even seem to be selectable. Seems odd to leave if nothing is available.

The Spotlight search integration was removed.

The Preview window toolbar is still customizable and those menu options apply to it (are not disabled) when it is active.

Spotlight doesn't work well with RAW images that have XMP sidecars.  In fact, it never worked at all for RAW files with XMP sidecars.  If you use JPEGs then Spotlight worked OK.

Mee too, don't agree. Spotlicht search worked fine for mee and I used it every time with great results. Also when I opened a contact sheet of a folder with lots of subfolders, the search showed also results in the subfolders. Now it doesn't anymore?

How can I use search with same results as in PM5 ?

Is there a work around for sorting images by filename without the quick search bar? Primarily when I cull through thousands of images, I used the quick search bar on the top right in PM5 to quickly sort between filenames. This helped tremendously by separating the second shooter images from my own. Please advise. Thanks!
