Is MENU Window>Arrange icons useful?

Post by Olivier_G »

Menu Window>Arrange icons arranges all minimized windows.

But is this really useful? Shouldn't this function be removed to simplify the menu?

Pierre, people who manage windows as minimized icons in XnView are about 0.1% (especially since tabs are there)... and I guess about 1% of those (ie:0.001%) would use that auto-arrangement of iconified windows.
Bottom-line: please remove that Window>Arrange icons... :D

I think that we stick to parts of the MDI behaviour are good, but this menu item is pretty much good for nothing. I also think that we should remove it.
