Great application, ixtab!
Is it possible to add "Update collections" feature, that will purge empty collections and create new collections only for books that aren't in any yet? It should be faster than full regeneration from folder structure and will preserve changes (like moving "Dictionaries", "Archived Items" and "My Clippings" from home).
Another feature suggestions:
- hierarchical view
- make toolbar vertical: saves space and allows more buttons
- "select all" button
- ability to delete books too (non recursively, so deleting collection won't delete books in it)
- menu option to delete selected items recursively
Also, what do you think about profiles support? E.g. everything in "documents/$profilename$.profile/" is treated the same way if it was in "documents/", but is displayed only if specific menu item is checked. Is it possible to maintain separate book progress and recent history?
- Click "Display only collections" (next page button gets disabled, as expected) -> "Hide invisible" -> "Display all" -> next page button stays disabled.
