Having spent days (seems like very happy weeks) populating DT (3.7 on 11.3) with data from EagleFiler, learning my way around DT and configuring/organising it just as I want, I realise there are still a couple of things that I’ve either overlooked or misunderstood:
- I have built a top level structure for all my docs/files based on areas of interest (‘Arts and Science’, ‘Finance’, ‘Computer’ etc… seven top level Groups corresponding the the seven colours available). But when I open a top level Group’s disclosure triangle in the Sidebar and drag a (new) file into one of those Groups - or for that matter into any Group which has child Groups that display in the Item List - such a ‘new’ individual file does appear in the Item List but does not appear in the parent folder in the Sidebar. Is that normal behaviour, and can it be changed with a Preference?
- Is there a Preference which controls/sets the View for the Item List, or do I have to go to View > View as… (…Items, …List, …Columns) each time?
Thanks in advance to someone who can help me understand and fine tune this amazing piece of software !
