Match ANY/ALL setting for filtering categories

Post by Tschens » Tue May 15, 2018 7:02 pm

It would be VERY helpful to enable the "Match any / Match all" filter option not only between rating and category, but also between different categories. Lets say I have a category "Black and White", and another one with "Nature". I could easily find all black and white nature pics. This is not possible at the moment.

I just realized that the problem only exists if the second category I choose has sub-categories. Since I have to hold down the CTRL key in order to mark the second category, all subcategories are marked as well which leads to the described problem. I actively have to unmark the subcategories in order to get what I want. Is that a bug or a feature?

I think it's quite a bug. When an option for parent keywords is enabled, Ctrl-Click will select all sub-categories,

You must disable "automatically apply parent keywords" in Tools, Settings, Metadata .

Then filters will give good results on multiple selections of categories.

And you have to enable again the same option when tagging pictures ...
