|0012068||Scribus||OS-MacOSX||public||2014-02-16 16:58||2023-11-11 10:00|
|Summary||0012068: [Qt5 BUG] Open file dialog doesnt remember bookmarked folders|
|Description||"Open file" dialog (of all sorts) enables to bookmark folders (drag'n'drop them in the left column). That's very handy to get quick access to various work folders.|
In 1.4.3, scribus remember these bookmarks across uses, days and weeks and months.
In 1.5, scribus DONT remember these bookmarks after closing the app, or doesnt reload them when launching scribus again.
[EDIT] fixed for linux, bug only exists now for Mac OS

|related to||0013748||confirmed||Ability to move dirs/files in to Qt File dialog to other folders|
||As this feature is a feature from QFileDialog from Qt itself, is's likely a Qt bug. Scribus in all versiona does nothing with Bookmarks here.|
||Yeah it is a Qt bug in Qt 5.2.1 at least, do not remember about 5.2.0. Qt 5.1.1 works as expected on Windows.|
||On openSUSE 13.1 (Qt 5.2.1) the entries added in the left column are saved as expected.|
Issue is there in Ubuntu13.10 with both Qt5.2.0 and Qt5.2.1
AMOF there is no need to close Scribus for the FileDialog to forget the bookmarked folders : closing the dialog is enough.
OK I posted https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-36888
Qt has answered on Qt bugtracker's page.
Answer mentions :
- QFileDialog destructor saves the settings and in QFileDialogPrivate::init restores them.
> Could it be that one of these is not properly called ?
- KDE has their own dialogs, so the bug could be there (but that's probably irrelevant when running a Qt 5 application on KDE 4)
> Are you using KDE on your opensuse Firash ?
- Qt might have been built with #define QT_NO_SETTINGS
||JLuc, I'm using KDE 4.11.5 and Scribus is compiled with QT 5.2.1.|
||Bug has been fixed in Qt and shall land in next version (5.3).|
Reopening Qt bug and Scribus bug because bug still persists on OSX:
||A patch (hack) is proposed in 0012534|
Patch refused, breaks file dialogs on Windows and cause other issues on Ubuntu and OS X such as 0011996.
||Closing, this is not our issue. It has to be fixed by Qt.|
||reopening to track Qt's progress on this issue.|
Just left another comment on the QT bugtracker and also sent a direct email to Shawn R. explaining this is still an issue on MAC OSX 10.8.5
Response from Qt dev Shawn R. with a patch!
No need to change subject, the patch does not apply directly to scribus code.
||Right, sorry. That was me getting excited. I'm still figuring out how to test this without it being so time consuming|
||Qt5 Patch that made it in to Qt5.4 Alpha does not work as tested by chhitz. Letting Qt dev Shawn know.|
||This issue is now only related to the OSX platform. Even though it's really a Qt issue, keeping it open to monitor the situation.|
||News: Shawn R posted a fix and closed the bug it will be implemented in Qt5.5 beta! I haven't verified that it fixes our bug. Will make notation once Qt5.5 Beta is released|
||Still persists in Qt5.5 on OSX 10.10.3 r20256|
||Waiting for Qt5.5.1 to test|
Persists in Qt5.5.1
Letting Qt dev know.
Craig, from Shawn R (Qt dev)
Tried qtbase/tests/manual/dialogs on 5.6 branch on OS X 10.11. Unhecked the checkbox "Use native dialog" and dragged a new folder to the sidebar. It's still there the next time I open the file dialog and the next time I run it. The settings are saved to ~/Library/Preferences/com.qtproject.plist, which is a binary file but I can open it with xcode, and I see the shortcut I added in the list under FileDialog.shortcuts.
||Kunda, as mentionned by Franz in the first note of this issue, bookmarks is a feature from QFileDialog, so we do not manage those at all. Those bookmarks are entirely managed by Qt.|
||jghali, understood. according to Shawn R. (0012068:0038786) it's fixed in Qt5.6 on OSX. I haven't tested it on 5.6 yet|
||Ugh, still persists in Qt5.6 on OSX 10.10.5 1.5.2svn r21089|
Ok, further digging:
Per the Qt Dev:
The settings are saved to ~/Library/Preferences/com.qtproject.plist, which is a binary file but I can open it with xcode, and I see the shortcut I added in the list under FileDialog.shortcuts.
So here i what I did:
1) Opened a the Open File Dialog
2) Dragged a new folder in to the Shortcuts area
3) Go to Finder and QuickLook at ~/Library/Preferences/com.qtproject.plist FileDialog.shortcuts
4) I can see the new folder appended to FileDialog.shortcuts
5) Reopen Open File dialog
I don't see the shortcut in the dialog
Perhaps if I restart Scribus ?
6) Restart Scribus
7) I still see ~/Library/Preferences/com.qtproject.plist that the shortcut is still in the .plist
8) Open the Open File dialog
Result: I don't see the shortcut in the GUI
9) Look at the ~/Library/Preferences/com.qtproject.plist again
Result: I don't see the entry in the FileDialog.shortcuts anymore
||Utnik, I'm wanting to get this feature fixed on OSX. would u mind doing some testing on 10.11 for this? Thx in advance|
i don’t have scribus 1.5.2. so i tested with 1.5.1 on macOS 10.11.4:
scribus seems to open the open file and save file dialog without connection to ‚~/Library/Preferences/com.qtproject.plist‘, but it overwrites this .plist with the standard entries (‚desktop’ and ‚volumes‘) when i close either the dialog or the program.
It's Ok with Ubuntu and Scribus 1.5.5.
Is this still an issue on Mac with new Qt and Scribus versions ?
just tested with scribus 1.5.5 and 1.5.6-r23195 on macOS 10.14.6.
scribus still 'forgets' the shortcuts (replaces them with 'volumes' and 'desktop').
The Qt issue has been closed due to lack of activity : https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-36888
Anything recent we should bring them ?
||This issue still infuriates me and costs me every single time I use Scribus.|
