Movable Tabs and Tab Thumbnail Hover Action

Postby bacree » Wed Jun 01, 2016 6:01 pm

It would be great to have movable tabs, similar to moving tabs around in Chrome. I mainly use XnView to sort through reference photos and they're never in "order", so being able to open a selection of photos and reorganize the tabs would be immensely helpful! Currently if I want to achieve this I have to open photos one by one in the order that I need them and this takes forever.

Also, if there could be a way to hover on a tab to have a larger thumbnail pop up. I'm sure I can make the thumbnails bigger in the tab bar, but it would quickly let me identify a photo before I have to click on it, decide that I don't want that one, go back to the browser and try another. This one is not as critical as the above request/suggestion but could also be helpful when sorting through a ton of images.

haha, I didn't even realize that there was a newer version :) Kinda bummed you have to hold down Ctrl to open multiple photos but it'll work.

Actually, it would be great if XnView Classic had the moveable thumbs tabs feature as well, since it seems to work better for me in other respects.

Thanks!
