|0000685||MediaMonkey 4||Main Panel/Toolbars/Menus||public||2003-09-04 15:02||2021-01-07 16:15|
|Fixed in Version||3.1|
|Summary||0000685: Duplicates functionality is unintuitive|
|Description||Currently (MM 2.0) in the default configuration, hashes aren't calculated, and so when the user clicks duplicates, none are ever shown, and there's no warning indicating to the user that duplicates may exist but aren't shown because....|
What should happen is:
-user clicks duplicates
-MM verifies whether hashes have been calculated for all tracks
--If they have, then duplicates are shown
--If the haven't been calculated for all tracks, then the following message appears:
X Tracks in your library have not been analyzed for redundancy. Would you like to analyze them now (this takes a fair amount of time)? [Yes] [No]
---If the user clicks Yes: Hashes are calculated for all tracks that do not yet have hashes (user must be prompted to enter CDs if they exist in the library). Once this 'scan' is complete, the results appear.
---If the user clicks No: Duplicates are shown for tracks that already have hashes.
|Fixed in build||1197|

||Quite a good idea, we just need to consider that such dialog would pop up everytime, maybe that a check box for disabling it for the next time would solve this.|
||We should also consider using fingerprints instead of hashes to detect duplicates.|
We should implement this as suggested, and in the future, we can add fingerprinting support.
Per Jiri's suggestion, the '[ ] Do not show this again ' option should appear in the dialog.
||Assigning to Ludek to implement as described. I would just leave that prompt for entering CDs - this would only cause problems and I don't think it would be really useful.|
Added as described in build 1196.
If user clicks [yes] then the background signatures calculating is started in a thread, but results are not shown at the end. The reason is that it can take hours to calculate all signatures and then it doesn't make sense to show results.
Re-opened, I forgot for the '[ ] Do not show again' checkbox.
