there are 6 "Copy the X" buttons with uninductive icons
Yes...we've used some generic icons that aren't perfect, but hopefully
good enough for beta. At some point we might solicit the community
to come up with icons/skins. Incidentally, we would hope that people
don't use the icons (or Edit menuitem entries) to perform a copy.
Instead, there are two much easier ways we've hooked up:
1) left double click - double clicking on the entry in question will copy it
2) hot keys - eg: Ctrl U to copy the url to the clipboard, etc.
The one thing that the toolbuttons/menutiem copy buttons and hot keys can do
that the left double click can't is copy multiple items at once.
eg: selecting 3 of your sites and then click the "Copy Username" button will copy all 3 of them
create special controls for such actions
Yes...but then it get complicated.
We'de have to add checkboxes and have to open up a new dialog asking exactly
what items the user wants copied - which is more intuitive for a new user, but
a painful extra step after you've used it for a couple days.
As the product evolves, we'll look to make things better...somehow.
Given what has been said above, if you have any other UI ideas, we'de be interested to hear them.
perhaps highlight the found match string though?
I guess we could add a preference to either "filter" or "highlight" with default being to filter.
Will add that to our TODO list for pocket.
(and prefer site name matches in ranking)?
When you type something, we show all items that have a case insensitive match
with any of their fields (group, name, url, notes, etc..)
We currently dont "rank" anything...we just pull all matching entries
and then show them in the list sorted according to the current sort column
selection. Showing them in a different order would mean mucking up our
column sort...unless we added another "Rank" column - which would
probably go over very well...
I guess a way for people to distinguish which column had the match
would also be useful...
Thanks for the feedback!
