v2 bugs

Nov 10, 2010 at 4:19 PM

I love Flickr Schedulr!  Trying out the new version and ran into some bugs.

Using Windows XP:

  • radio buttons and check boxes are blank after selecting options
  • when editing tags on multiple pics, no tags are saved - only if added per single photo
  • in the options panel, the configuration entered does not apply to the photos in the cue
  • no menu or buttons to save configuration? no menu or buttons to apply configuration to photos in cue?
  • imported configuration from previous version does not load meta data into the options panel

My upload did not did not work. I can't launch the program, get an error that says "Flickr Schedulr is currently uploading, you can't open the program until the current instance is stopped".  I'll use the old version for now but I love where the project is going. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for trying out the version and providing all your feedback!

First of all, the error you've seen has been reported by other users and should be resolved in the next version (v2.2) which should be out within a few days hopefully.

Regarding your other points:

  • Can you give me more details about "radio buttons and check boxes are blank after selecting options"? What do you mean exactly: selecting which options, which radio buttons and check boxes are blank and what do you mean by blank? :-)
  • Indeed the editing of tags on multiple pictures at once had a bug which will be resolved in the next version.
  • Indeed, the options panel only works for new pictures (as it says in the title: "default values for new pictures" :-) ). As you had already discovered with the tags issue, you can select multiple pictures in the queue and make changes to all of them at once if you want.
  • You can save the configuration explicitly in the Accounts dialog (click Accounts on the top) but otherwise it's saved automatically when you exit the application. I'm not sure what you mean by applying "configuration to photos in the queue"? As I said, you can select multiple pictures in the queue and make changes to all of them.
  • The import from the previous version indeed only imports the queue, not the options. You'll have to manually set the options again but that should be rather quick since there aren't that many options, and you won't need to do that for any newer versions anymore.

I hope this helps, keep me posted!
