Could you add [amm:straudinfo] and [amm:audinfo] shortcuts for HTML templates to the program?

Accessability/Keyboard Shortcuts and a few thoughts

Posted: Fri Aug 19, 2005 3:18 am

1. Would it be possible to add keyboard short-cuts for buttons in the add movie/edit movie window? For example. ctrl-enter to activate the "Ok" button and ctrl-right-arrow for next movie.

2. When you hit return in the title field, a imdb/amazon search is performed. THe focus should switch to the presented list so you can use the arrow keys to select the correct movie.

3. 90% of the time the first movie in the list is the correct one. Could we add a preference to automagically select the first movie if desired so mass adds would be easier/faster. Could also have some options...pick first movie, pick newest movie, pick most popular movie, etc.

4. When you import titles from a txt/excel file there appears to be no way to select all the movies and have a "retrieve info from IMDB" search/update done. This would be nice. Maybe just a button that says update all movie info.

5. Import export support for XML files. Then we could import data from other programs as well as have a easy database support format....XML is really the future...CSV is dead.

6. My little green play button is somewhat hidden under the image of the movie. Is this just me?

7. Great Great App! Love it.

Yes, I think it is possible and we will try to add this in the next build

ok. Will be implemented soon

I think it is possible to do, but imagine how hard to clear the database from those 10% incorrect movies :)

And you have to confirm right movie selection from the search results for each movie. By the way, there is a way to filter all movies with empty URL field (not imported from IMDB or other database) - just press CTRL-F10 to see them. Works since 1183 build

ok, we will think what we can do. I think XML is not a future but already the present. It hink we will add this feature in the next version

No, this is valid for all. Consider, where the right place for it

Different dbase

Is it possible to make use of a different database ( mysql for example ) instead of access.
Because I would like to build a private webpage so other people could see my movies.
But the html export is has to be done every time i make a change.

P.S. Or it would be beautifull if you could make it use odbc so anybody can use any dbase installed :)

Just make the default on install access and then you can change it through the options.

Seen Icon

Hello!
I think the "seen" icon is a little not propriate. Is it possible to add more icons that can be choosed by the user ?? I think the list looks a little messed up too with the seen icon there. What about just changing the color of the box. I.e seen movies have grey box or something ??

Im not creative enough to come with a good proposal, but i just think the lens dont fit.

Is there a Template Document out there to show how to build a template?

I tried 2 times and cant get AMM to reconise the template, I created the 3 documents.

I also tried a pure CSS layout.

Sorting Alphabetically

I think the default behavior for sorting should be altered. Could be a preference, but standard sorting in most applications ignores "A", "The", "An" and sorts by the first letter after that.
