  • Space wasted

    In the 'properties - organize' pane of U9 the keyword list isn't extended to the bottom of the tab. Instead lots of space is left empty. Imho the closed 'collections' group should be shown right above the tab name 'Organize' to display as much of the keywords list as possible.

    Eyes wide shut? This one still exists in the latest build:

    Oops, strings are truncated and scrollbar is missing.

      Yeah, I also agree with you, a lot of space wasted. I like to have both Categories and Keywords at reach without needing to constantly click the [+] signs to expand. Although I plan to use Collections in recent future, I'd like if it could be moved somewhere else!

          This surely is extremely annoying and makes me stick with Acdsee Pro 8 because I work with lots of keywords.

          Just checked the latest Pro10 update, and the problem is still there.

          I filed multiple support cases with AcdSee over the last two years, and I cannot understand why such a simple fix is not done (make the keywords section use the full available height once collections and categories are not expanded).

          Hey ACDSee developers - if you read this post:

          "As a user of keywords, I want an expanded section in the Properties/Organize pane (like "Keywords") to occupy all the available vertical space not used by the other (non-expanded) sections because I want to see as many keyword rows in the scrollable area as possible". It's simply ridiculous to block free vertical space for currently collapsed sections.

            And here we are, 8 months later, and . . . crickets. I'm also thrilled by having a block of four lines used (or in my case, not used) for "Quick keywords." Working on the 11.5" screen of my field-portable laptop, where I have less than an inch (seven lines) for keywords compared to 2 inches of completely wasted space, is very frustrating.

              As a user of categories I have the exact same problem.

                This bug exists since the implementation of collections in AC Pro/Ulti 9. However, I have a vague remembrance of similar problems with the properties pane many years ago when the actual design of the properties pane was implemented. Could have been AC Pro 4 or 5. At that time the problem was solved with a new build of the same version.
