Buona Pasqua.... Hopefully finally, here is the patch to add the ability to open multiple task edit dialogs all at once. See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132453 for the original enhancement, though the actual implementation is different from what I originally envisaged; it works so I'm happy. This allows you to select a number of tasks and then via the Action menu, right-mouse (Richard has patched this to keep the selection), or accelerator keys , then open up one dialog per selected task which will be focused on the desired tab (page) e.g. Action->Edit Dialog->Notes Page would open up the task dialog on the notes page. Why does this help user workflow ? And example: when you want to assign resources then the current way to do that is to click each task, open each task edit dialog in turn, click the resources page and then assign the resources and then close page.You repeat this for each task. With this new multi-dialog the task edit dialog can now take a list of tasks thus you can shift-click/control-clickmany tasks (up to 49 at a time) and then select Action->Edit Dialog->Resources Page and (after confirmation) open up
all these dialogs all focused on the Resource page. You then assign the resources for that task and close the page. Repeat for each open dialog. On small projects you won't notice the problem but on large projects of say over 100 tasks it can save many minutes if you have to go through each task adjusting stuff (assignments, notes, completion% etc). Notes for peer review of previously submitted patch. ==================================================== This patch is standalone from other patches which should help Richard :) Have enumerated EditTaskPage - it is still in planner-window.h as I feel this is a logical place for this given its used by a number of files and this works fine without having to add extra #includes I have added new popup_menu_items so I have cleaned up existing shortcuts. New icons for the edit dialogs and also for Reset/Reset All Constraints Renamed the Edit Dialog functions and UI stuff so that they have a consistent naming convention across all of Planner Existing functions, planner_task_dialog_new () planner_task_tree_edit_task () now take extra parameter #3 of EditTaskPage which switches the dialog to that Notebook page. Used g_list_length() where neccessary when counting number of selected tasks. Set all my strings to be translatable with _() Builds OK from clean checkout of anon CVS as of 3am this morning so hopefully no merge issues. Rgds, Lincoln.
