When you use the "locate by" option to find you pictures by date - it really annoying that it doesn't HIDE all other pictures, than the selected date - it only puts them on top!!! Please fix this in future releases.

Example:
I want to see all pictures from june 15 - I use locate by - and it puts all those pictures on top - but everything else is still visible, just further down...

Strange thing is that if you use keywords to sort your view - then it hides everything else than the selected keyword(s) - that's how it should be!

Will this be fixed in new builds/versions?!

Categories panel works as filter. "Locate by" panel works as locator and just go to selected group.

Sorry I don't understand your answer...
1.
Why should "locate by" not work as a filter (or have the option of doing so) when "Categories" does? If you have a photo shoot of 300 pictures a day for a week, then just putting the ones from a specific date on top - while still showing the others just under - doesn't really help you get an overview of what was shot which day.

2.
What do you mean

That's what I'm doing when I go to ex. June 15 - that's the "group" I want - and then I just want everything else to be hidden/filtered away.

I know this is a matter of taste - but if you have LOTS of photos, it becomes quite important whether your screen is completely cleared of all irrelevant stuff when you need something specific - or whether it just puts irrelevance down at the bottom, still interferring your workspace...

Hope you see my point. Wink

Groups it is the same as books chapters. "Locate by" it is contents of filtered images. So then you click on group (Date, Folder, Rating etc.) you moves to selected chapter/group. So this is normal work of "Group by".

I know that filter by "Locate by" is useful feature but it can't be implement in the near future.
