RC5: Suggestions on Context menu in Browser

Post by kaptainkory » Tue Jun 07, 2005 1:22 am

I suggest these changes (for a browser context menu that seems way too long and a bit unorganized...)

FOR ONLY 1 IMAGE FILE SELECTED:

Open
Open With
View in Fullscreen
View in hex mode
Print...
-------------------
Cut
Copy
Copy image data
Paste
-------------------
JPEG Lossless transformations (Only present when JPEG file selected.)
-------------------
Change timestamp...
Set as Wallpaper
-------------------
Properties


FOR MORE THAN 1 IMAGE FILE SELECTED:

Open
Open With
[View in Fullscreen] GRAYED OUT??? (Fullscreen can only show 1 at a time.)
View in hex mode
Print...
-------------------
Cut
Copy
[Copy image data] GRAYED OUT??? (What does this do anyway?)
Paste
-------------------
JPEG Lossless transformations (Only present when JPEG files selected.)
-------------------
Change timestamp...
Slide Show...
Batch > Convert...
............Rename...
Compare...
Generate file listing...
-------------------
Properties


FINAL THOUGHTS:

I have some ideas about how to incorporate "Describe..." and "Edit IPTC data..." into the Properties dialogue box, but I'll post those in another thread.

XnView 1.80 <x>

Just ideas... I personally prefer more sub-menus (fewer options to look at at one time). Other people may have a different preference and want to see all of the individual options in one big long list.

Even if you don't want such major changes, could you at least change the order of Cut/Copy/Paste? Most programs (even XnView Edit menu) put these in the order Cut, Copy, Paste. And why "View in hex mode..." rather than "View in hex mode"? (No dialogue screen opens.)

I disagree, just one submenu please - and if, then for "Create > ..." only - see another topic...
