RDM 12.9.1.0 - New Favorites format

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Just upgraded to RDM 12.9.1.0 (BETA) and the DB upgrade was successful. However, I lost all of my Favorites in the upgrade (which looks like it was expected - no more local and shared Favorites). So with the new Favorites platform in RDM and the ability to create folders for Favorites, can we also have the ability to sort the Favorites and/or Folders within Favorites (the entries under those folders)? I've added the Favorites back and put them into Folders but they show up in the order that I added them (basically all gumbled and in random order). Alphabetical order would be good and make it easier to find them in the list. Right now, it is difficult to find them because you have to look at each Favorites entry until you find what you want.

Hi,
I've found a bug in the migration and this will be fixed soon. They are supposed to be sorted alphabetically. I will check why it's not the case but it was working fine for me. We plan to release a beta update soon.

Thank you

By the way, we will also sync the favorite with all your devices. They will be saved in the database.

You all are great. Just upgraded to 12.9.2.0 and the sorting works perfectly. Nice addition!! Thank you!!

Sorry, I didn't notice this originally. With the new Favorites format, when you open a session (i.e., connect) to an item in the Favorites list, that item no longer changes to BOLD characters (which used to indicate that the item had an open RDM session in previous versions). With this change in 12.9.3.0, it no longer does that. Same for the playlist (when I open a playlist), it no longer changes the font for the opened Favorites item to BOLD. Not sure if that is by design or not so I thought that I would mention it...?


Thanks

This seems to be a bug. I will check this.

Just a follow up. I upgraded to 12.9.4.0 (BETA) this morning and the Favorites now show BOLD when they have an open session. Good fix - thank you!!

Thank you for the bug report.
