Favourites and Shortlists

Postby Richard Briggs » Sat Oct 26, 2013 8:46 am

Hi all,

I have been using SPE (a lot!) over the last month. It is brilliant. But I have a question that concerns Shortlists and Favourites.....

Firstly, does every effect I have a look at or, indeed, use, appear in the 'Recent Effects' list accessible from the top right-hand corner of the screen? If so, I find it almost impossible to find a particular one to add to my Favourites. It would help if they were ordered alphabetically. Even then I am sure effects only appear in this list under certain circumstances and I can't figure out when. And, if they don't appear in this list, you can't add them to your Favourites from what I can see.

Is the Shortlist just a momentary thing? Seems to lose its contents even in the course of a single project.

In short can someone simply explain 'Recent Effects', Shortlists and Favourites and how they relate.

Hi Richard,

Take a look at this help page. I've just updated it to make sure it (hopefully) covers all your questions. Let me know if there's anything else I can add.

Great, you have pretty much confirmed what I'd concluded (I have to admit to not reading the Help!).

Now I understand the logic of the ordering of 'Recent Effects'. Would be nice to have various options for sorting such as:

Most recently used ("now where is that effect I used 5 minutes ago")
By Name ("Where is 'Snowdrop 2' which I used last week. At least, that's what I think it was called")

And, of course, by frequency as you have stated it is ordered at the moment.

Thanks
Richard

Hi Richard,

The recent effects are actually a combination of frequent and recent (called frecent!). If you want to search by name, there's a search box in the top right of the gallery.
