Correct. This is because with the use of Extra Fields when you changed a category like this you couldn't be sure that the new fields for the category you were switching to would be properly set. If you uploaded to Cat A which had no extra fields and switched to Cat B which had them, then you would never be prompted for the Cat B extra fields.
Please do not PM me for support or sales questions. Thank you for your understanding.

Yes, after posting I realized he was talking about admin bulk uploads, while the other thread you and I were discussing was about multiple file prompts.
My idea was geared towards the multiple file prompts screen. You currently present a screen with a number of file prompts. It could be modified to present a file prompt as well as a category selection via pull down. That one does go to another screen, so it would then present the proper info.
Yes you could switch cats on bulkupload but the extras would not update if you switched a category on the old version. it was never coded to allow the global extras to update on the fly as I have stated.
Hense with the addition of the customizable extras fields yes the category on bulkupload is locked down since it is a necessity.
Michael said he would look at ways of dynamically allowing both in a future version.
my members used to be able, through the 'multiple file prompts' feature, to upload 2 or more photos and have them go to different categories. now, the multiple file prompts are still there, they choose a single category for all the photos, and the following screen no longer allows for individual category selection.
what this means in practical use is that instead of getting photos categorized properly, we now get numerous mis-classified photos because our members don't have the ability to upload multiple photos to anything but a single category.
I'm continuing to get complaints from my members about this downgrade. it was possible before to upload multiple files to multiple categories. any chance, Michael, that you could pass along a patch that would restore this functionality?
