Bug Description

I have built more than 100 panoramas. When building #107, I noticed that PTBatcherGUI.exe does only display up to #97. I don't see the other jobs, specifically not whether they were successful.

I can't reproduce the issue. Tested with current version: PTBatcherGUI displays fine a queue with over 200 jobs.
Probably the batch queue is corrupted. Best is to clear the list (start PTBatcherGUI with pressed ctrl key or use clear queue from the menu).
The batch queue is not intended for permanent saving of processed panoramas. It was written for a smaller number of projects.

Last I had the 64-bit version (2015) running (on Windows), now I'm running the 32-bit version (2016). The effect looks like this:
I see jobs 1 to 97, then sometime a job like 107 (latest), but not the last few jobs.
Would it help to send you some file (it seems the queue is actually one file)

"File > Save batch" is too obvious?
Maybe the option "Remove finished project" is ticked on? Then the finished projects will be removed from the batch at the end of processing?

If the finished projects were removed, I guess I wouldn't have more than 100 projects in the list. I'm attaching the saved batch and a screen shot showing the problem. At the time of reporting I should be at project #117 or so.

The last entry in the batch queue has id 97, has visible in the screenshot. So this matches. There are not projects with higher ID.
The first column is an ID, not a consecutive number!
And again the batch queue is not intended for a permanent saving of stitched projects. It is intended for intermediate saving of open projects.

Just imagine I have 120 open projects ;-)

Seriously: From time to time an id like "117" appears after the "97", and obviously the 97 is not the latest project.
So is there a limit of 100 jobs or so? Today most program icons take up more space than the list of jobs, so I wonder why this limit exists.

Can you expand on your use case?

So if there is a problem with many jobs in the batch queue, why not implement a ring buffer, keeping the last n projects?
Or why not pop up a message saying "Too many jobs, please delete some!"?
I think it's just handy to have a history of all your panoramas you made; maybe I want to make some statistics from the data, even ;-)

I think the tasks of a batch queue differ from what a log file does.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Job_queue
