I’ve taken a few screencasts to demonstrate a problem I was running into when trying to import or drop photos into Tropy. I’ll note each filename below along with a brief narrative of what I was trying to achieve and the result I got instead.
This is the first test import; I get repeat numbering among the photos, and it seems to import a much larger number of items than I selected.
My first test of an import. I was getting 1) repeat objects, and 2) the scroll kept going past the apparent number of objects. I’m also getting weird behavior when I try to select a single photo.
I’m not entirely sure what happened here – but adding a photo seemed to re-import old photos as though they were never deleted. (This test came after an initial import of an object; I deleted that object and got this result.)
Note here the inconsistent count of photos with the number of items in Finder.
On import of a photo, the name of the file doesn’t match the name of the photo on the righthand side. And, double-clicking the photo wasn’t doing anything (seemed to unselect the item?) But when I double click on the item, it seems to correct the issue.
Just to make this even stranger, when I double-clicked a single object from the home view the bugs above appeared to go away. And, I haven’t had a problem with importing since these initial bugs.
Before it seemed to correct itself, I reproduced this problem with 1) a brand new item, and 2) a brand new project. I was also running Tropy Beta previously, in case that has relevance here. Happy to provide more details, logs, or kick more tires!
