Open: Catalog state yellow for off-line catalog items
« on: September 30, 2019, 01:57:31 AM »
At the moment the cataog state indicator bullet is green only for on-line catalog items. It would be useful if the state indicator would be e.g. yellow in case of off-line items. This way it is immediately obvious what you are looking at and it would also be a bit more informative (when you are browsing your catalog you already know that the images are in your catalog so the green dot isn't really helpful in that case).

I would like to second the request for the catalog state to indicate if the image is off-line.   
Right now in the Organizer view the pip is green if the image is "on-oline" and clear if its not. 
But in the Navigator view the pip is green if the image is in the catalog and clear if it is not.  All images are 'on-line' if they are in the Navigator view right?
Having a third state would allow the indicator meaning to be consistent in both Navigator and Organizer views.
In Navigator when the indicator is Clear or Green it  would represent   'not in catalog' or 'in catalog'.
In the Organizer view Green or Yellow would represent  on-line, or off-line. By definition all images in the Organizer view are in the catalog.

Having the three states would give another indication that the contact sheet is in Navigator or Organizer view as well as the tab icon.
