Using the Graphic Rotation Button and Re-Sync Asset does not work (or reliably does not work). To reliably rotate photos and Re-Sync to the new position, I must use dropdown selections. I would think using the rotate button or dropdown rotation to be the same. I am using Version 1.1.0 PS for Desktops (latest channel).
Ideally, I would like to L90, R90, 180, and Re-Sync Asset Button vs. dropdown.
Additionally, multi-selection capability in Home window for the same selection Re-Sync Modified Asset(s) button.
Thanks for taking the time to post this, @SamuelT2
I may be misreading your feedback, but just to be sure: are you saying the icon in the header to rotate doesn’t work, but the menu option to rotate does work?
I hadn’t including all rotation options as you can just bang on the “r” key until the orientation is correct. PhotoStructure only “saves” the change after you navigate to another asset, or don’t do anything for 7 seconds.
Note that you don’t have to wait for your changes to save–if you navigate to a different asset or to the parent tag, it will immediately try to save your pending changes as well. The changes should be saved in the background, and if there are any issues with storing the new rotation value and rebuilding previews, you should see a “toast” (in v2.1 and later) that explains what went wrong.
I had the same issue with rotation in 2.1A7and was told to wait for an update. Mathew is on Out-Of Office on holiday at this time and is not expected to reply soon. I do not know if the issue will be resolved in alpha.8. In my case, I did not lose any assets, just the ability to rotate any images.
