The new file import dialog window is highly unusable.

New file import dialog window introduced in some sub 22.x version is highly unusable. I can import files 4 times faster using system file dialog box. Please make the new workflow optional and don't spoil the something that worked for years. If you want to make peoples' life better you are in a very bad direction.

Ann's post is correct. They created the new page as far as they were concerned as a replacement for the old new project dialog. Most experienced users simply ignored it, typed a Name, selected Location, clicked Create.

 

We didn't use all the other location options more than maybe once, right?

 

So they thought we would obviously just do that with the new 'page' thing. Well, it ain't so obvious to most users as it was expected to be, is it?

 

Like Ann says ... Name, Location, Create. Then your project opens, you build the structure via Project or MediaBrowser panels as always.

 

The new page is for things like newsroom use, where an editor might get 8-20 "stories" dumped on them for quick processing. Each story has a single folder with all the talking head/b-roll media in it. This "import" page is slick for that kind of use.

 

Not for most of us though.

Thanks for the explanation! That makes a lot more sense now than before. This Import button was quite confusing at start.

Yea, it certainly is. And while I can see it's usefulness for certain workflow needs ... I wish at least that the Create button was next to Location drop down. Or that a simple tab/enter tap would invoke it.

 

Sigh.
