Looks like time to merge Strip of images and Contact sheet.
Strip is just one "band" of a contact sheet.

I agree.
So I understand this feature should be considered "user preference", not "improvement"; like some people choose dual-filelist, and some single-filelist file managers.

I'd say APEX, because it is what this field should show. And we also have a field with "interpreted" value, so there is no problem with getting "intuitive" value. There are a lot of caveats in EXIF tags (especially maker notes), so I think it is best not to overinterpret them. So, generally, we can ...

You obviously just don't get it so I'm not going to waste anymore productive time convincing you. Other users can speak for this feature. Also read Dreamer's points, because he "gets it". Plus, why don't you go to xplorer2's forum [ www.zabkat.com ] and try to convince users that dual pane is a use...

Debugging support

Why There are some returning problems that currently Pierre is unable to fix, because he cannot reproduce them. They are fe. disappearing cursor, taskbar staying on on fullscreen etc. In fact, they may not even be XnView problems. Debugging support would be also useful when investigating "normal" b...

Its usefulness is self evident and has been mentioned previously, even with a screenshot. Self evident-not. Clarify to me usefulness of two file panels in MEDIA BROWSER . Come up with some SCENARIOS related to media browsing/editing when it is useful. Tell it to me (and others) in plain words. Mayb...

Dual pane is just a feature that is useful if added to XnView. And I still wait for some reasonable scenario justyfying it. Not every feature is useful. Whether or not it's practical to add at this time is a different consideration. No. We are not talking about abstract notions here. Suggestions sh...

So first think about your ideas and then present them.

BTW, do you think that user wants to create exe file (doing what?) or create slide show and then select its form?

But you should be aware that I mentioned how specific GUI enhancements improve user efficiency and visual ergonomics. It's not just to make a program look polished and modern. It's about visual organization and allowing responsive workflow by the user. I don't think these examples serve your purpos...

IMO too much efforts currently goes into making more visual impression instead of practical functionality. We get slow interfaces with aesthetics of Barbie. But people seem to buy it and customer, voting with a wallet, is always right :( Good XnView is freeware :) One can make great GUI with Windows...

OK, so we agree on that point.

BTW, I've checked and it seems XnView can display transparency only for palette images and only in windowed view? Guess it should be changed?
