Is it possible to implement drag-n-drop folders from a file explorer to the select folder window of the add to library tool? It would turn things easier. HMM11 had a much more friendly interface since we saw all tree being able to click the folders that we want to. Similar behavior would sure be welcome.
I think you need to provide a picture of what you request, I do not fully understand which exact function you request from your description.
Please note that we will not implement a tree like in Helium 11.
The implementation matches "Is it possible to implement drag-n-drop folders from a file explorer to the select folder window of the add to library tool?" meaning that you can drop one or more folders to this tool.
I don't want to complicate things, so in complement that it was already said:
Suppose you want to add 50 albums. The way it is now, you have to browse to each folder (the folders are already in the right places, but are spread all over the collection tree, so it is a pain).
What I want to do is place the folders in their right places, just as it is now, but instead of having to browse all these folders one by one using the add tool, I want to drag and drop all these folders from a external file explorer. There is no move of files in the process, when I drag and drop the folders to the add tool window, HMM would know the sources that I want to include, only that.
I should be able to drag and drop 5, then more 5, then more 1, them 3, then more 10.
>> if I will have to browse to all those folders using the add tool window, one by one.
Not sure if you read what I actually implemented but with the most recent version, 14350, you can do this:
1) Open the Add music tool
2) Open a Windows Explorer
3) Select one or more folders from Windows Explorer
4) Drag and drop these folders to the Add music tool
The folders you have dropped will now be listed in the same way as if you clicked the Add button.
Yes, 14350 is the version that I'm using now. But for some reason I'm having very frequent crashes, having to delete helium.json.
I wan't to check all over again but I won't be able to do it now. Will answer later.
