[Managing] Tag List Scrolling

Postby usbpoweredfridge » Tue Oct 20, 2015 12:10 pm

I thought CN used to actually behave like this, but I may be mistaken. It would be nice to have an option to not have the tag list automatically scroll once you click the 'All' or 'Untagged' entry.

Situation is you have a large tag list (longer than one page), and you have scrolled say halfway down the list and clicked a tag. You then want to show all tags again, so you click 'All', and CN will scroll the tag list right back up to the top - which is pretty annoying if you want to move to the next tag in the list after the one you had selected previously (ie you have to scroll all the way back down the list again). I have 'Only Related Tags' enabled by the way.

If CN could not scroll the tag list back to the beginning when you click 'All' or 'Untagged', that would be great (I would be happy for the option to be disabled by default, ie current behaviour is the default unless you change it).

This was crucial to reproducing this behavior. In other tag modes, it doesn't scroll.

Actually, it doesn't scroll in the literal sense. See: first you scroll (let's say tag pos #20 is on top), then you click on a tag in the middle of the list, the list changes to include only related tags. Most of the time this list is much shorter and fits on one page, so scroll position gets shifted back to pos 0. After you click on "All", the scroll pos remains the same (= 0).

To do it like you want, the tags list would have to treat the "All" and 'Untagged" views differently from "A tag is selected" view, and remember the scroll pos separately for them. IMO this would be to much trouble for the gained benefit.

But you can always prove to me that the issue is important by adding it to the roadmap and finding 10 voters for it ;)
Actually, I've done the first part for you: http://roadmap.cintanotes.com/topic/990 ... tags-view/
You can add the first vote yourself )

Thanks Alex, added my vote. Unlikely too many people would be interested in this though (sadly for me, makes trying to organise/move my notes into different sections much more cumbersome).

No problem, Chris!
Since it's not very hard to do, even 5 votes would be enough for me to start working on it.
