rating stars in preview window not stored when mouse has not moved

Post by andreasbuykx »

I am rating photo's in a folder, by traversing the images using keyboard buttons to move between images, and I have the mouse pointer over the stars in the large preview panel.

I observe that the rating is not stored unless the mouse has moved since the last rating.

To reproduce:
Open a folder with multiple images to rate.
Move through the images with keys
Rate one image with 3 by mouse click on 3 star in lower part of large preview panel
Press right key (don't move mouse) => now the rating shows on the previous image
Rate next image with 3 by mouse click
Press right key => no rating shows on previous image

Note: I just found out that it is actually much more convenient to use Ctrl+4 etc for rating ...

checked in 1.5.2 (sorry, I'm an infrequent user).

Although I now see ratings appearing in the overview (multi-image) panel after the second move-right, I think it would be much more helpful if the rating appears right when the star is clicked, same as when I press keyboard shortcuts Ctrl-<n> where n is 0..5: then I get immediate feedback, showing the star on the image in the overview pane and the colored stars in the preview-pane. When I click the star-icons in the preview window the same feedback appears in the overview pane only after I have moved to the next image.
