Can I disable the annoying time based groups in the history panel?

Post by avada » Wed Sep 11, 2019 8:17 am

Hi!

It's great that there's now a panel for this. However this feature I find annoying compared to the pop-up version. There's this hour, today, month, this year, previous years, a whole bunch of them. And the groups only appear when something gets into them so I have to open them. And often I have a bunch of groups with few items in one screen because I didn't open many different pdf's in a weeks time.

I only see an option to disable the pinned group, which group in contrast I find really useful.

Hello Avade,

This is a new feature, and does not currently seem to allow you to remove this grouping!
I will pass your concern to our devs and see if they can make that into a Feature Request for a further improvement of the History pane!

Regards,
Stefan

Hello avada,

You can use the Alphabetical sorting to view all of the items in one group. We'll see whether we can update the view with the Show Groups checkbox of some sort.

Cheers,
Alex

Hi avada.

We will try to add such feature in the next build. Possible solution:

Sort By >
  • [x] Opened Time
    [ ] Modified Time
    [ ] Closed Time
    ---
    [x] Show Time-Groups
    ---
    [ ] Alphabetical

the new "Show Time-Groups" will work only with "XXX Time" sorting modes, for sure.

Cheers.
