Tree instead of multicolumn listbox in VIPM main window

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

After using VIPM Pro for a while I end up with a long list of packages and now my screen is not high enough to see all the packages without scrolling soI was trying to think of a way sort package in the main VIPM window.

 

I first thought of a "filter" string at the top of VIPM's main window to only display package with name containing the "filter string".

The second idea (my favourite) was to have a tree instead of a multicolumn listbox and to be able to organise the packages in groups (and even sub-groups, wiy not).

 

Something like that :

Anyone else has a lot of packages and think this would be nice?

Any other idea to help sorting packages?

Did you know that VIPM already has this ability (if I understand your question/suggestion correctly)? See the screenshot, below, and the documentation for the Quick Search feature for more details.

This would be nice. We're actually toying around with ideas for how to find and deal with lots of packages. A tree view fits into our plan for a great solution. ;)
