Groups Two arrows button

Postby bonalymac » Wed Nov 01, 2017 6:37 am

The Two arrows button is one I never use now.

I have my Groups split into a number of folders by type, eg Audio Book, Music etc.

If I use the two arrow button, then it starts doing what I want by getting the updates for all my groups. But then it displays them all in a single tab in the main window. This makes identifying topics more difficult. Could we have an option to show the updates in individual tabs for each folder.

Currently I have to use the lightning bolt each time for each individual folder.

Thanks for considering, hope you like the idea.

How are you opening the display tab? Do you have Newsbin set to use a single display tab or multiple tabs?

Sorry for delay, I was away, and out of contact for a few days.

I have my Newsbin set up for Multiple tags.

But I made a mess of my request!

I'd been meaning to submit this for ages, but never got round to it. So when I did last week I made a complete mess of the problem. I do use the lightning bolt for each folder individually,. The problem however is that if I select say 6 folders, and use the lightning bolt, then only a single tab is opened. However new posts from all the folders are shown in this one tab, and it is titled with the name of the top folder selected.

Ideally, I'd like to suggest that the lightning bolt offered to open the selected folders in individual tabs (presumably only if the user has selected multiple tabs)

Alternatively, the two arrows could be made to work with update all, or update and display all (again in individual tabs if selected.)

I hope I've made it clear this time.

I couldn't figure out what you were asking.

Double-clicking a group is the same as "lightning bolt + open tab". There's a lightening bolt both in the group right click and on the tab so, I'm not sure which one you're clicking.

The 2 arrows already "Updates all". So, I'm not sure what you're asking for.
