my wishes and criticisms
« on: June 27, 2020, 11:50:39 PM »
Hello
(translation from French with Deep.app)

I have summarized what could be improved (in my opinion!) to this exceptional software

My problems with PM+

I only catalog my JPEGs, but I have two catalogs and two identical trees on my two macs. The photos are automatically synchronized on the macs.

Moving photos
To be able to tell PM+ where the photo tree is, which would allow to move it (it was possible with my two old databases)
I work with a catalog on one mac, I copy it on the other one (or I use Chronosync) but it is unable to locate the photos. Yet I need both to be identical.

Search with Browse
Limit the possibilities because there are many that I never use, e.g. Location(legacy)

For collections
It would be nice to clearly separate the include-remove for catalogue and collections, it's too easy to make mistakes.

Photos without date of capture
How to add them?

Escape key
Other software use the G key to return to the browser, this option would be nice.

So you want to hide some of the branches of the Browse tree.

For collections
It would be nice to clearly separate the include-remove for catalogue and collections, it's too easy to make mistakes.

OK, we can add a separator in the contextual menu.

Photos without date of capture
How to add them?

If the images don't have the various EXIF tags then there is no place to write them.  You could use the IPTC date instead.

Escape key
Other software use the G key to return to the browser, this option would be nice.

The 'G' key already has a function assigned to it.

The other issue (synchronizing two computers), we will have to think on that.
