First, great news! There seems to be literally a whole jungle of new features to be explored. So, my first question is about the new feature of the image viewer. Maybe it is already possible, what i am asking for, otherwise please see this as a suggestion.
Looking at the image viewer, with the meta panel open, a few questions arise. Like, is there some hotkey, or some command, to switch between the image itself, & the meta panel? I would like to avoid using mouse clicks, because my workflow is built mostly on keyboard shortcuts. When i have edited tags in the meta panel, i would like to give the focus to the image, in order to be able to use the arrow keys for the next or previouse image. For example, "tab" could be assigned to this task.
Next i would suggest some supporting parameters for the Show VIEWERCMD=meta command. Those could be like following: Show VIEWERCMD=meta,focus=tags,append.
So the focus=tags parameter would emulate a click into the meta panel field "Tags", also making all existing keywords visible. Currently, only a few keywords are visible at first, & another click into the field would show all present tags/keywords. This leads me to the next parameter, i am suggesting, which is "append". Because like it is now, the input focus after the click into the "Tags" field is almost randomly somewhere inbetween the existing tags. It would be better, if it always would be set to the back of the existing keyword list, if present.
The benefit of all this would be, that i (or other users, who prefer to use Opus for tagging images or music) could directly start to add keywords in the proper field, & go to the next or previous image, with the most important field always active & already having the focus. Of course users could choose a different field to start with, like Show VIEWERCMD=meta,focus=datecreated, etc.
Maybe it sounds lazy, but having full control over all the actions in a metadata session will speed up the whole process significantly.
Thanks for maybe considering the ideas!
