as a developer, this is of particular interest to me. renaming/organizing large sets with nat can be a nuisance, but it's getting better.
one thing i always wished i could do was click on the columns, like one of the category or sub-category columns, and have it re-order everything in alphabetical order for that column. or for program name, descriptions, etc. instead of just having the program filename determine the order. what's always bugged me is that you can click on them, they act like a button, but don't DO anything.
another thing i just noticed, i've been trying to edit a large folder with many n2ps in it, i load them all, edit them, and i click 'save' to save my edits, but they don't all save. it's like there is a limit to how many programs you can load/view/edit/and save at the same time. maybe this is just a bug with nat on my particular system because i haven't seen anyone else mention it, but i've been re-editing the same programs over and over for an hour or more now. i'm doing it now by loading only around 20 at a time, and it seems to actually save my edits, but that's beyond tedious..
last thing, for some reason i've noticed nat crashing every time i move/re-size a window. anyone else get this?
i'm liking that G is giving this stuff attention- i love how he added the ability to edit program names from NAT after i griped to him about it. literally a few hours after i complained to him about having hundreds of file names to change (for tubefm4, and having to do it one at a time through Nebula was INSANE), he sent me a new NAT that could do it. that's awesome (thanks again, G!). i've also already got a lot of use out of the new 'patch' feature. so things are definitely improving here.
aha! i think i just figured out one of my problems myself. it wasn't because of a limit of how many files you can edit that my edits weren't saving (i didn't think this made sense anyway because i have edited large numbers before). it was because out of ~500 programs, 3 were bad. i think i tried to delete those effects in the past, but they re-appeared somehow (nebula's cache), and were damaged.
something like that. anyway, point is, one or two bad programs in a large group, seems to cause all of the other edits you make to the good ones not save. something to keep an eye out for when editing large groups of programs.
