Isn’t it normal (I mean in other applications and operating systems) that items that have been deleted must be restored before they can be used? The bin is for items you want to throw away; fortunately, there’s a chance to change your mind before it’s gone forever, but the bin’s not intended as a general storage location.
If you frequently find yourself needing to reuse items in the bin, maybe there’s a better workflow, something like a Collection of items with a Tag “unwanted” or similar.
Or maybe there’s a need for something like an Archive - a place for stuff you don’t need and don’t want to clutter your space, but you don’t want to throw away.
I don’t think changing the fundamentals of the bin is the right way to go.
But (a) I might have been misunderstood and (b) that’s just my opinion.
The app already works differently than other apps since the links to the deleted objects are not removed and are left there because you might eventually want to restore the object. I’m just asking for a more convenient way to restore objects if you come across them in a canvas somewhere. If I, for some reason, delete a bunch of bookmarks, and then later come across a page filled with those bookmarks, I will need to restore them from the bin one by one. Not only one by one, but also going into the bin and searching for them manually every time.
I would actually prefer if there was an archive of some sorts, because I don’t really want to delete my bin stuff ever.
I like this idea…
It just bothers me too much to dig into the large bin hole to find the exact thing to restore.
Especially, when currently you can’t rename media… almost half of my image are named as “image.png”… I can’t tell what they are, to effectively search and restore proper desired one😅
In 0.34.0, the users will be able to access deleted objects directly trough links in the canvas. If they choose to, they can open the link and recover the object directly from there. This is good enough for me to mark this FR as implemented.
