2017-06-15 08:08:59 GMT <digcat> has anybody noticed a weird css issue on share 5.2.GA with the folders on gallery view? noticed the folders width has been hard coded to 100px

2017-06-15 08:09:45 GMT <digcat> think its ment to be 100% rather than 100px ?

2017-06-15 08:11:02 GMT <angelborroy> digcat for me is 100% at 201702

2017-06-15 08:12:26 GMT <digcat> hi angel, hope all well your end, good job on the ttl yesterday which i caught after the event :)

2017-06-15 08:12:33 GMT <digcat> ok so im using =201702-build-00016

2017-06-15 08:12:51 GMT <angelborroy> thanks digcat

2017-06-15 08:12:58 GMT <angelborroy> it looks the same build

2017-06-15 08:13:15 GMT <digcat> ahh ok so might be an addon perhaps

2017-06-15 08:13:30 GMT <angelborroy> no, not really

2017-06-15 08:13:44 GMT <angelborroy> the height param is striked

2017-06-15 08:14:08 GMT <angelborroy> let me see

2017-06-15 08:14:12 GMT <angelborroy> is applying the upper one

2017-06-15 08:14:13 GMT <digcat> yes i noticed that too,

2017-06-15 08:15:00 GMT <angelborroy> yes, I have the same

2017-06-15 08:15:06 GMT <angelborroy> same behaviour on my side

2017-06-15 08:15:20 GMT <angelborroy> nope, sorry

2017-06-15 08:15:25 GMT <angelborroy> it’s applying 100%

2017-06-15 08:15:40 GMT <angelborroy> height:100% from “span.folder” style

2017-06-15 08:16:00 GMT <angelborroy> so it looks fine

2017-06-15 08:16:06 GMT <digcat> hmm wonder whats going on with my copy, im definitely seeing 100px for height and width,

2017-06-15 08:16:49 GMT <angelborroy> if you resize the window also 100px is shown?

2017-06-15 08:16:53 GMT <angelborroy> not in my case

2017-06-15 08:17:01 GMT <angelborroy> when the window is smaller, height is also smaller

2017-06-15 08:18:58 GMT <Loftux> digcat: angelborroy: Are you guys using different browsers? Maybe browser specific behavior.

2017-06-15 08:19:29 GMT <angelborroy> I’m using Chrome in Mac, while digcat is using Chrome in Windows

2017-06-15 08:19:47 GMT <angelborroy> probably this makes the difference

2017-06-15 08:24:06 GMT <bmejias> hi all... a user tells me that she can't upload images to Alfresco with Ctrl+V

2017-06-15 08:24:23 GMT <bmejias> in her message, it sounds like: she can't do it anymore after the upgrade.

2017-06-15 08:24:52 GMT <bmejias> which surprises me a lot. Anyone aware of such functionality ever working on any version of Alfresco?

2017-06-15 08:25:13 GMT <angelborroy> I have never tried that!

2017-06-15 08:26:19 GMT <angelborroy> also I can confirm that is not working for 201702

2017-06-15 08:26:46 GMT <angelborroy> bmejias are you referring share web interface?

2017-06-15 08:27:20 GMT <bmejias> yes, Alfresco Share

2017-06-15 08:27:23 GMT <Loftux> bmejias: Never heard that this is something you can do. Only thing we have in our build is ALT modifier with DnD that lets you creates a new version if a file with the same name already exists.

2017-06-15 08:27:38 GMT <bmejias> I tried on 4.2, that is what they were using before the upgrade. Now they are running 5.1

2017-06-15 08:28:07 GMT <angelborroy> and it works for 4.2?

2017-06-15 08:28:17 GMT <bmejias> no, it didn't.

2017-06-15 08:28:29 GMT <bmejias> anyway, thanks Loftux and angelborroy for confirming that this is not a known functionality

2017-06-15 08:28:40 GMT <bmejias> I will mention to her that she can use drag n drop

2017-06-15 08:28:41 GMT <angelborroy> probably you can ask her if she can show you how

2017-06-15 08:28:52 GMT <angelborroy> probably we all learn a lot from that :)

2017-06-15 08:29:09 GMT <bmejias> I can't, because here instance has been already upgraded.

2017-06-15 08:29:21 GMT <bmejias> s/here/her/

2017-06-15 08:30:02 GMT <Loftux> It is amazing how many different ways end users actually do the same task.

2017-06-15 08:30:43 GMT <Loftux> Still have those "oh you can do that?!" moments

2017-06-15 08:39:31 GMT <Loftux> About the DnD and ALT modifier, provided a patch May 2014, been in our build since. Must be very hard to make a decision on if it should be implemented… https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/SHA-320

2017-06-15 08:59:11 GMT <digcat> hi angelborroy, sorry just had the creators update, geesh wasnt expecting that to be so big !

2017-06-15 09:01:16 GMT <digcat> so if i go into the exploded share folder in webapps, im seeing that width as 100px, so when in gallery view the folders get squashed as shown in that screen shot, is this a bug ? or your saying your seeing the width = 100% in gallery view ? sorry just wanted to clarify

2017-06-15 09:30:28 GMT <twen> hi digcat ! I'm fin thanks. Just not very focus today... Learning is difficult :p

2017-06-15 09:35:44 GMT <digcat> hey twen, yes can understand that one! what you learning?

2017-06-15 09:36:07 GMT <twen> digcat Currently at the end of Business analysis course

2017-06-15 09:36:23 GMT <digcat> ahh teaching you stuff you didnt know?

2017-06-15 09:37:53 GMT <twen> I'm not teaching, I'm being teached ;)

2017-06-15 09:38:14 GMT <twen> and yeah BA is something new

2017-06-15 09:38:54 GMT <yreg> Good morning

2017-06-15 09:38:59 GMT <digcat> morning yreg

2017-06-15 09:39:53 GMT <digcat> twen good stuff, always good to keep the grey matter challenged

2017-06-15 09:40:15 GMT <yreg> Loftux, did you find a fix for https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/browse/ALF-21825 ?

2017-06-15 09:44:51 GMT <twen> digcat Exact :) This time however, the challenge is quite high for me :-/

2017-06-15 09:47:27 GMT <Loftux> yreg: No fix for this yet

2017-06-15 10:33:09 GMT <MorganP> bmejias: maybe the ctrl+v was for some kind of CIFS/AOS windows integration?

2017-06-15 10:33:27 GMT <MorganP> I mean accessing Alfresco from a Windows Explorer and not from Share

2017-06-15 10:33:36 GMT <bmejias> MorganP that's a good guess I think. I will ask her

2017-06-15 18:04:14 GMT <sakshi> hello, I need to create a custom action link for Documents in Alfresco which would copy the actioned upon Node to a destination folder

2017-06-15 20:49:56 GMT <cDavid> Hi, is there a way to export/import an Alfresco folder tree (e.g. the documentLibrary of a Share Site) preserving the version history of the documents?

2017-06-15 21:01:02 GMT <xkahn> cDavid: Yes. See the import/export extension

2017-06-15 21:01:19 GMT <xkahn> cDavid: used to be built into Alfresco, so it should work pretty well

2017-06-15 21:01:54 GMT <xkahn> cDavid: I guess this is the link: https://addons.alfresco.com/addons/importexport-acpzip-share

2017-06-15 21:01:56 GMT <alfbot> Title: Import/Export ACP,ZIP from Share | Alfresco Add-ons - Alfresco Customizations (at addons.alfresco.com)

2017-06-15 21:02:27 GMT <xkahn> I have it installed on Alfresco 5 and it works....

2017-06-15 21:02:37 GMT <xkahn> Not sure why it says it is limited to 4

2017-06-15 21:02:51 GMT <cDavid> Thank you!

2017-06-15 21:04:38 GMT <xkahn> Hopefully I didn't have to do any customization to make it work. I don't remember.

2017-06-15 21:06:05 GMT <cDavid> Now they moved to github (https://github.com/atolcd/alfresco-share-import-export)

2017-06-15 21:06:06 GMT <alfbot> Title: GitHub - atolcd/alfresco-share-import-export (at github.com)

2017-06-15 21:07:54 GMT <cDavid> Have you tested the import of the version history of all documents?

2017-06-15 22:52:03 GMT <holycow> oh!

2017-06-15 22:52:05 GMT <holycow> hi all

2017-06-15 22:52:50 GMT <holycow> question: is alfresco secure? i would like install it so it is publicly available to a few team members but cannot put vpn in place

2017-06-15 22:53:04 GMT <holycow> or rather, is alfresco secure enough to install publicly

2017-06-15 23:08:42 GMT <holycow> aha. lots of companies setup alfresco publicly. nice.
