I'm not arguing that. The name of the command behind “Create strip of images”, however, is still cmd_Panorama.

'Create strip of images' for me is sprite generator tool. But without transparent background I can't use it :(
Panorama - photomerge (blend images together). So I agree with budz45.

Again: I don't deny that the name cmd_Panorama is misleading, since it doesn't stitch photos together.
  • cmd_Panorama [ Create strip of images... ]
If I'm not mistaken, Pierre can only change the label of the toolbar icon, but not the name of the internal command.

XnTriq,

right I better understand what you mean by 'internal command name' ok it's the name used in the behind-the-scene process.

Pierre could've chose a better accurate name like cmd_ImgJoin or something like that - anyways that's another debate.

sorry for the confusion.

1. good idea for panorama because represent photomerge (how one photo blend with other).
2. in context of graphic application like xnView - can be interpreted like make puzzle from image.
3. not good for sprite generation tool like 'create image stripe'

mezich,

what do you think on my latest summary above? Do you think everything in those requests is done? 'Add Watermark' you decide upon original design or you plan on entirely new submission to this topic?

Pierre has not gotten back to me yet on 'Copy Special' - you see with 'copy path' a user simply would click on it and then the full file path of the file would be copied to the clipboard, the icon for this is done/completed and I thank you dearly for that icon mezich.

Ok, what 'Copy Special' would do, is, from the top-menu (the 16x16 menu's), present a sub-menu for users to do other extended copying abilities of files to the clipboard. Check out this topic again; http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=21664

completed - Second variant is front paper is black with 'c:\>' on it.
So that two-paper 'tree folder' variant would suit 'Copy Special' just rightly :P 24x24 - would you await Pierre's approval first?

T think gear on front paper would be good for 'Copy Special'.

Future commands should wait approve. There is many good commands in current UI without icons.

About copy path, linux does not use C:\ Is there a rival symbol familiar to each platform?

Yes ">_" or similar on black is very thoughtful
