Description

If I'm working on a folder, then import its parent folder, the progress bar will say "importing xx images" but nothing happens (the list of images is still from the current folder). It'll work on the second try. Not really serious, just annoying.

(the list of images is still from the current folder).

And by the list you mean the displayed images in lighttable?

If after import you adjust the collect module, can you see the newly imported images?

It'll work on the second try. Not really serious, just annoying.

Yes, I meant the displayed images in lighttable.

When I select the child folder, the Collect module only list the child folder.

Then when I select the parent folder, the Collect module still list only the child folder, and doesn't load the images from parent (the displayed images are still from child folder)

Then when I select the parent folder the second time, the Collect module will list both folders with the parent folder selected, and load the images from parent.

That's an old problem I have, too. It's most likely a GTK thing: when going to the parent folder in a file open dialog without selecting anything in there we still get the child folder as the one selected after the dialog closes. I am not aware of a way to actually make GTK report what the user had visible in the file dialog, but I didn't look into this for quite a while either.

Tobias, you're absolutely correct. Now that you mentioned it, the child folder is highlighted in the dialog on the first try, and isn't highlighted on the second try.

As a workaround, on the first try, I just need to click on one the images in the parent folder to de-select the child folder.

Not much of an issue, just annoying GTK problem. You can close the issue if you want. Thanks much.
