I'm sorry to post such a stupid question, but I'm a bit confused by the help for folder and content type options.
If I select a folder in the lister, and choose Tools|Folder Options, I can kind of figure out what to do to set the various fields and so on. I've even managed to apply a great view style to all subfolders. This is such a powerful and complicated aspect of Opus, I'm sure it will take some time to fully understand.
So how can I easily apply the same view settings (fields, sizes, colours) from a folder view into a Content type view? It seems to be an opportunity to add this facility somehow, but I'll be darned if I can figure out how.
I got into a situation a few days ago with a previous version of Opus, where I tried to do just that (I figured out a folder view I liked, then tried to change the Content Type settings (for that particular content type and no other, I wanted to use the same settings as in my folder view), but then that somehow propagated to every single folder. So I did a bad thing, and reading the help I think I know where I made the mistake (in the confusing save/clear/reset actions).
Re-reading the help for the Folder Options, I'm fine until halfway down the page, when it suddenly starts talking about folder format groups being displayed, with checkboxes in a list somewhere, and they ain't. Not in my Folder Options dialog, nor in any of the tabs in that dialog. The only way I seem to be able to see the items discussed in this help topic is if I use the Preferences|Folders|Folder Formats|Content Type Formats, and there is no way that I can see to "copy" or "duplicate" the settings I painfully entered for the folder options into the appropriate Content Type settings (which makes a lot more sense in this situation than changing 3,000 folders' options!), which I guess is the whole point of Content Types.
But there seems to be no link or description in that same help topic to explain how to get to the Content Type editor. I guess this is just an oversight in the otherwise excellent help, but it's sadly lacking in this area. To have a single help topic explain a similar looking dialog that can only be accessed by two completely different menu commands is quite disconcerting, when only one method of access is discussed or explained.
I'm assuming (!) this is just an oversight in the help file, but if not, then I'm doing something wrong, and if anyone can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong to be unable to see what's described in the help topic for that dialog, and/or b) how to simply "transfer" the settings for a folder view "into" a content type view, I'd be very much obliged.
Again, I apologise for the silly question, I've reviewed the tutorials (which don't work correctly on an x64 system due to Macromedia's issues with 64-bit flash players!) and tried to figure it out, but a good half hour later I'm still scratching my head. Fleas, probably.
