Description Andreas Stangl 2007-07-12 18:12:56 UTC
Version:           1.9.7 (using KDE 3.5.7, Gentoo)
Compiler:          Target: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.21-gentoo-r3

It is a little unlogical (to me) that i first create a default filter and then rename it. Everyone who uses more than one filter always has to rename a newly created filter.

Comment 4 Andreas Stangl 2009-07-06 10:14:58 UTC
I am closing this, it's not that difficult to double-click onto a new filter :-)
Comment 5 Maciej Pilichowski 2009-07-06 10:30:49 UTC
Please reopen this report -- after all there are duplicates linked here. There is still no edit box for direct creating new filter. So the workflow is unfortunately not changed a bit.
Comment 6 Andreas Stangl 2009-07-06 10:37:20 UTC
ok, reopening :-) I will take a look at the source code, maybe I can provide a patch or something (when I have time) as nobody of the kde-devs seems to care about this. It should not be so hard to show up an input dialog after one clicks onto the "new filter" button.
Comment 7 Maciej Pilichowski 2009-07-06 12:21:12 UTC
Not exactly :-) Currently there is search edit box above. My point is to add edit box for entering the name. So the replace could be immediate.

However the best would be removing the need of edit box anywhere -- allowing user to rename filter in-place (see Konqueror and press F2 for rename).
Comment 8 Andreas Stangl 2009-07-22 16:32:00 UTC
I'm not an Qt expert, but If inline-renaming should be possible, the filter list should be an one-column table widget instead of an QListWidget. I'm not sure if the devs want to replace the widget...

Call slotRename right after creating a new filter

no magic in this patch, just call the slotRename() in KMFilterListBox::slotNew()

Maciej, might be good if you increased your votes. Maybe we will be heared :-)
Comment 11 Maciej Pilichowski 2009-08-15 19:05:30 UTC
I would have to take back other votes for KMail :-) and besides, there are so many issues and so little developers, that I doubt it changes anything really.
Comment 12 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-08-18 08:44:47 UTC
Thank you for your feature request. Kmail1 is currently unmaintained so we are closing all wishes. Please feel free to reopen a feature request for Kmail2 if it has not already been implemented.
Thank you for your understanding.
Comment 13 Luigi Toscano 2012-08-19 00:26:52 UTC
Instead of creating a new feature request, please confirm here if the wishlist is still valid for kmail2.
