Title: Queue and Saved singers issue
Post by: Fabio on October 19, 2015, 03:51:34 PM
Since I'm not indexing certain folders because it's not easy to add all the files in that folder to the exclusion list, I just have a folder on my desktop that links to that folder so when I'm dragging a zip from that folder into the Queue about 75% of the time "unknown singer" goes off editing mode and end up typing but not actually editing the singer, I then have to hit the F2 to bring it back to editing mode so I can type the correct singer name.  I'm not sure if it has to do with how "busy" VDJ happens to be at the time to account for the 25% when it does work.  I had noticed this before but I wasn't sure until last night when I had to drag a few songs (more than usual) and it happened several times.  I've only noticed this when I'm hosting, when I try to recreate it now, it seems to work fine.  So I don't know if you'll be able recreate it.  Also, I'm using a different laptop from last night.  The one I'm trying now is my old laptop which has all the pictures from FB which on my new laptop the links are there but the pictures are not, only pictures that have a physical picture on a folder are being loaded.  BTW, where does VDJ keep the copies from FB?  I'm thinking this might be related as it tries to load an FB picture that no longer exists..at least not on the new laptop.

2nd issue:
For the saved singer tab, when dragging from the above folder into a singer, the singer switches to whatever singer you just dragged past.  I think I remember this was an issue back back when you first added the saved singer tab and you changed the timeout before the singer switches to another singer when dragging --it seems to have have reverted the timing.  I don't this very often so this hasn't been an issue

ok, so the first issue below, I thinking that my current mouse might be adding an additional click after I release the left mouse button when I'm dragging and dropping. I try it with a different mouse and the problem is not there.

the 2nd issue is still happening.  This is the same issue I had back in version 6...here's the link to that post

Yes, I somehow lost the delay... well that whole interface is getting a bit of a makeover, so I will make sure to address that.

As for the drag 'n' drop issue, I *think* I know what's causing that, and it does have to do with using an external program, but the problem is in VDJ. Whenever VDJ loses focus, and then regains focus, it updates itself to ensure all the buttons etc reflect the correct state. This is probably unnecessary...

So as soon as you "drop" the file, VDJ regains focus, and does some background crap, causing your edit box to lose focus. I will fix this :)
