Hi Love the software. Here are a couple of suggestions that would make my day allot easier. 1. Would be nice to be able to pick several keywords in filtering. I have tagged allot of my movies with keywords but i would like to narrow down to two or three keywords. 2. Would be nice to also have negative keyword, so that negative keywords are hidden. if i have selected three keyword but not the fourth. My suggestion would be a shift click to make them red and remove certain keywords 3. Customising the panels. 99% of the time i will be using search string and keyword. Could i hide the attributes/collections/imports/.... then i could have room for more keywords 4. Consistency of keyword short names. Some of my keywords are complete, others are like this "ke..." . Would be nice to have a configuration of how much it compresses the software keywords 5. Is it possible to search marks. Lets say i mark a specific timecode in a clip with "nice sun". Then it would be n ice to search for all clips with "nice sun" and also those clips show thumbnail of that nice sun. Easier to search and compare sun images. Thank you Terje

Hi Terje, Thanks for the note. Great suggestions. Here are some specific replies: 1. Would be nice to be able to pick several keywords in filtering. I have tagged allot of my movies with keywords but i would like to narrow down to two or three keywords. You can do this today, just use the command key when you click the next keyword. 2. Would be nice to also have negative keyword, so that negative keywords are hidden. if i have selected three keyword but not the fourth. My suggestion would be a shift click to make them red and remove certain keywords That's a cool idea... will add to our list of things to look into. 3. Customising the panels. 99% of the time i will be using search string and keyword. Could i hide the attributes/collections/imports/… then i could have room for more keywords If you click the little circle/arrow in the upper left of the panel, it will minimize it. I'd also like to let you re-order the panels, something we are thinking about. And then we'd need to allow you to make the keywords panel bigger. I like it and want to do it. 4. Consisten cy of keyword short names. Some of my keywords are complete, others are like this “ke…” . Would be nice to have a configuration of how much it compresses the software keywords Not sure I understand what you mean here exactly. But it is pretty east to fix if you have a typo in a keyword. Click the keyword on the left, then cmd+a to select all of the videos. Then add the new correct keyword on the right. Click the X by the wrong keyword. 5. Is it possible to search marks. Lets say i mark a specific timecode in a clip with “nice sun”. Then it would be n ice to search for all clips with “nice sun” and also those clips show thumbnail of that nice sun. Easier to search and compare sun images. Agreed, something we've thought about. We're considering making them just another type of keyword, so you'd find in the keyword search. Thoughts about that? Thanks Chris

Hi Chris. I think what Terje means is the display of keywords. Some of them don't show complete word or phrase. For example, instead of displaying 'stage', it just appears as 'sta...' and we cannot make it display the full word so most of the time hard to know what that keyword is if we want to add to multiple files. Attached is a screen shot of this. [Screen Shot 2019-05-02 at 2](//muut.com/u/videux/s3/:videux:LRUs:screenshot20190502at2.29.18pm.png.jpg)

I would like to clarification on how keywords are handled in VDX. I'm suffering from the same exact issue where I literally cannot read many of my keywords since I use code descriptors. Even though there's ample space in the keywords box, they are all being shortened and unreadable. I looked in preferences to see if I can force them to be spelled out completely, but I didn't see anything that suggested it's possible. Is there a reason that all of the keywords get truncated? The whole point of a keyword is that it's a short descriptor for the video. I can't read them because they are one-word keywords that are being truncated. My specific issue is with 4-6 letter keyword codes that get truncated, for example: XXXA XXAB XXAC XXTP All get reduced to: XX... XX... XX... XX... Which I can't make heads or tails of and am forced to type in the entire code, rather than picking it from a dropdown. Thoughts? Maybe I'm just doing something wrong. Would like to learn more.

Can you send me a screenshot of where the keywords get truncated? I have an idea of what you are talking about but want to make sure. Send to info @ videux . com. Thanks!

Ah, sorry. I see it what you are talking about now. I missed that eric_j posted that screenshot. The keywords are truncated on the buttons. This is odd; I do not see it on my machine even if I put it super long keywords. I suspect that this is only truncated on the button, not in the actual storage. But not sure why it is doing this. It is likely some Mac font setting. I will investigate. Thanks!

I am still not able to replicate this one. None of the keywords I enter, even if very long, get truncated with an ellipsis like this. On some other fields, we do intentionally truncate with ellipsis, but not on keywords. Very odd. For anyone who has this happening, if you can tell me a little more about your particular mac setup, i.e. any special display types or resolutions, font choices, any accessibility option enabled, user profiles, or anything else non-standard, etc, I would appreciate it. We are trying to wrap up the next release and this issue is one of the few open before we finish. Thanks! Chris.

My other though is that maybe some odd character or type of input is causing the keyword to actually get truncated in the database. Can anyone who is having this issue please send me a copy of your catalog (no need for the videos, just the catalog with a couple of examples of this happening). Thanks! Chris
