Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 248367
Confusing behaviour in playlist editor
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
When removing a track from a playlist by right-clicking on it, there are two
relevant menu entries:
* Move to Wastebasket
It is not clear what the difference is. In fact, 'Move to Wastebasket' will
actually move the *original track* from your Library(!!), whereas Remove will do
the right thing and remove the track from the playlist (but keep the Library as-is).
This is very confusing, and will lead to people unintentionally losing tracks
from their Library.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a playlist
2.Add a track to the playlist from the Library
3.Right-click on the track in the playlist
4.Try to decide what the opposite of step 2 is from the menu entries given
'Move to Wastebasket' is selected, no confirmation required, track is removed
F-Spot is an example of an application that does this sort of thing much better.
Could you elaborate on the "F-Spot is an example of an application that does
this sort of thing much better."?
Should it be "Move file to Wastebasket"? Any other hints?
The F-Spot menu items read:
Remove From Catalogue
Delete From Drive
