Summary0000488: view direction
DescriptionIs there a possibility to have the view direction always enabled together with the position selction. I'm tagging most of my pictures manually and it would be much easier to do so if I don't have to set, select the tooltips, select ''add direction'' and select the direction afterwards. A possible solution may be an additional button aside the normal set button, which immediately starts the direction dialog when selected. I don't think that it is a problem if all selected pictures get the same direction.

Thanks for reading

a part of your feature request is already implemented. In the latest version is a menu item "Map | Add direction to selected images"; there is also a corresponding button in the toolbar of the map available.

There are 3 ways to do it:

1. Use option "Assign Marker and Direction to Selected Images" (see attached screenshot). As I see, I will rename it to "Assign Position and Direction to Selected Images". Please note: In current official version, only a direction will be added, no point of view. I will change it. But you can set it immediately after doing this step by dragging the shown view point.
2. Assign the position by using the button with red marker and green left arrow. Then you can either a) press the button with blue triangle and small + (also shown on screenshot or b) hide or move the read marker and then drag the focus marker (purple with yellow dot) to the position where you want to set the view point.

The dialog which appears after 2. b) looks maybe a bit rubbish. This will be fixed in the next release.

By the way, if you often use the option "Assign Marker and Direction to Selected Images", you can assign a hotkey to it in application settings.

Sometimes I'm a little blind, your tips have been very helpful.

Esspeciallay the tip with the red marker and green left arrow fits my way to work.

As I said, in the current release 3.3.18, the view point will not be set when assigning position and angle in one step. This will be changed in the next release.
