Thumbnail labels into the VIEW menu

For faster access, I like to suggest moving "Thumbnail Labels" from "Options -> Browser" into the main "View" menu.

I assume you misunderstood my request. :wink:
It should totally removed from the options and be placed in the main menu of the Browser.

Ok, but how to put it in a easy way?

Menu entry "Thumbnails Labels" under "Thumbnails Size".

If selected, then a window similar to the actual dialog in options pops up.
It also would be great, if that dialog will contain a control to quickly select if the thumbnail labels should be shown or not.
So you can keep your special set of labels, and simply turn it on/off.

I disagree, all options should be (also) in Options window.

Actually it is an option - but in fact it's part of the view, and I change it often.
But I must admit, that I do something like toggling my set of labels on/off.
And beleive me, it's quite annoying to go to Options menu, clicking to Thumbnail labels, and then customize my labels forward/backward.

So I change my request:
Leave the Thumbnails Labels stuff where it is,
but add "Thumbnails Labels" on / off to the main menu of the browser.


I think that we all can live with that solution - and it's easy to implement! :wink:

Yes, better, maybe even better - and/or this:

- another item in View>View as

- Thumbnail
- Thumbnails Labels
- Thumbnails & Details
- Icons
...

With shortcut(s) in the future - more in my list here.

So
- Thumbnail
- Thumbnails & Labels
- Thumbnails & Details
- Icons
...
Thumbnail show only filename, and Thumb & labels show options/Labels
right?

:shock: No, sorry ...

- Thumbnail shows Thumbnails (not filename!), as it ever was
- Thumbnail & Labels shows Thumbnails + labels in that way, like defined in options

:? I understood your post as if it should only show the filenames not the thumbnails.

Of course Thumbnails should work like it ever was! :wink:

I would prefer a View with Thumbnails only (no filename) and a View with Thumbnails+Details with all the information you want to show (filename included if you want to).

A lot of filenames are just meaningless and you can get the info very easily/quickly with the tooltip on the thumbnail.
:arrow: It would give much more room on the screen to the Thumbnails.
