Been struggling the last few weeks, again with the concepts of how to implement the Auto-, Surname-, and Instant-, and ReOrganize buttons. This time my problem is that the user might customize after AutoOrganizing and then want to save this. I was throwing around the idea of saving four versions of the organize info, one for each of the Organize types, and save all 4 with the Behold file. Night after night, I was thinking about this, and couldn’t quite get it just right. It was too complicated, and might be non-obvious for the user. The real problem, I finally realized, was that after custom organizing, the custom info could be saved unintentionally over the original organize info. My solution is for the first three reorganizes, append a suffix to the file name when saving (_AO, _SO, and _IO). And if that new name will write over an existing file, prompt first. Maybe that will work okay. I’ll have to implement and try it.
