- Text, but with a fixed set of permitted values
- Text, column shown in the tag browser
I've done moderate testing with each of these custom column types.
The 'Catalog options' section of the catalog sticky
has a preview of the updated UI.
This looks great. I'm glad that we can choose different columns as the source for Genres. Unfortunately, it doesn't do much for me because I want to use multiple custom columns for my Genres in the catalog. So I am still forced to compile those columns (from 2 - 3) into one column.
