Hello,
I would like to request a feature.


If I search for an application, it would be a nice feature to see the location / folder of the appication in the menu (for example Video -> Editor). I don't mean the location on the HDD /SSD/USB/Cloud :-)


Is it a possible feature for a future build?

Interesting thing but I can't see why you need this feature. What is your use case, can you explain it?

BTW in the configuration form you have a sort of this because when you click on a found item in the search bar, the treeview syncs with that item so you can see where it is located.

Hi,
I am adding some programs to menu. At the moment I have over 2000 ;-)

What are you meaning with your tip? I tried and nothing and nothing happens. Only if the configuration page is closed and I go

on Configure element it jumpts in the configuration. It whould be easier to add apps if I don't have to close the config every time :-)


The location feature is in the librekey suite and I love it.

Let's start with some assertions
1) SyMenu can add apps in several ways.
You can add an app dragging onto the floating icon.
You can add one or more apps from the "Get new apps". They are suites' apps.
You can add an app from the configuration form in several way (drag from file system, add from form menu).

2) Liberkey is not SyMenu, SyMenu is not Liberkey. If you ask a feature never tell me "I want that because it's in the other menu".
SyMenu is growing following its own way that is a way of consistency! So instead please ask "I want that feature because is organic with the SyMenu philosophy and structure", you have more chance wink



I don't understand you clearly so I can only imagine what your problem is.
With your first question you asked me to be able to locate an app logical position (position inside the SyMenu tree) from the context menu search bar. IMHO is a senseless request because the context menu is built to execute apps, not to manage them.
On the other hand the configuration form is built to add, manage, remove apps, so it's correct that inside this form you can have a tool to locate an app logical position. And, guess what, you already have it. Enter the configuration form and press CRTL+S, start to write an app name and it'll appear while you type. Click on it and the treeview will open on that app.

Now, can you explain me better what your use case is? I mean, make an example of what you are not able to do, because I don't understand where the real problem is.

OMG. I have tomatoes on my eyes :-) I never seen the search field before ...
I don't say that I want to have the function, because of Librekey :-) I said only, that I have experience with the Librekey function :-)


Ok the search field ist enough for me :-)



Thanks for your help
