As a user who makes extensive use of the “Index Files and Folders” function, I would like to first thank the devs for making this immensely useful feature a first-class citizen in DT3. It significantly increases the usefulness and interoperability of DT3 in my workflow.
Second, I would like to request that the right-click context menu show an option to “Deindex” an indexed file or folder, in addition to “Move to Trash.” The rationale is that when I intend to leave the files where they are on the filesystem, I only want to disconnect the index in DT3 from the files, not “move them to the trash." As it is, I need to move them to the DT3 trash but then remember to not delete the files and folders when I empty the trash. This becomes complicated when the trash contains some files that should be deleted from the filesystem and some that should not.
A “deindex” option would avoid the trash altogether in scenarios where deletion from the filesystem is not the intent, thus minimizing the risk of accidental data loss. Thoughts?
