Description Axel Krebs 2013-06-29 10:32:39 UTC
When working with BQM, one can save a specific batch. 

Importing is _not_ possible, however. 

Why?


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. starting BQM, thisr uns very fine.
2. saving seems to ork, too.
3. loading a saved workflow (="batch") is not possible
Actual Results:  
there is no way to load (import?) a stored batch.
So, there is not properly working worflow.

Expected Results:  
BQM should be sabved and loaded easily.

I came across he same issue again- is nobody affected else?

We can _store_ workflows.
We can NOT open worflows.

Why?

I assume, there is too much programming around.

Workflow is stored in core XML config file. It's not yet implemented an export import feature. You can assign workflow to a queue...

I take "workflow" as synonymous to "quee".
To get back to my remark: I just search a simple way to save workflows
(=ues) to save time

Queue seems to be a synonym for a workflow in the code. Importing the workflow also seems to work by clicking it on the BQM, but there's no specific way to load a queue of files it seems. Is that what you wanted?

Just as a remark: I have written an external script that generates a BQ workflow from the XMP Image History of a picture that is edited by hand before. The script can be downloaded here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/91057768/createBatchQueueWorkflow/createBatchQueueWorkflow.sh
