We used to have a context menu in the launcher, dunno what happened to that. Quite easy to re-add it though.

Lost during one of the iterations. The content file selector has seen quite a bit of back and forth.

After version 1.0.0 is completed and improved, it would be great to see an optional advanced interface like the one used for MGE XE. I'm thinking of under the Settings tab you could have Advanced Settings which would open up much more precise and alternative choices like what MGE XE does.

ROFL.
As I seem to have inherited the job of maintaining the launcher, I'll see what I can do.
No promises, and I won't be able to do anything until next weekend at the earliest.

@Tes96
PR submitted where Multiselect is turned on and added context menu to allow check/uncheck the multi-selected items.

I believe this satisfies the request. Sorry for the delay.

Default behaviour in QT is a bit non-intuitive.
  • If use control click to select items and do a drag, items will be added in order they were selected, which may not match their positional order.
  • If click/unclick files using menu, more files than the selected ones may be changed, due to current logic to enable/disable based on file dependancies.
Will be interesting to see what feedback Zini comes back with.

This we need to iterate on. Surely it is possible to find the original order of the selected items and then use this order for the drop part.
If click/unclick files using menu, more files than the selected ones may be changed, due to current logic to enable/disable based on file dependancies.
This I do not see as a problem.
