Convert window and Convert single file

Post by lian »

Hello,
the remarks of the day for MP 0.38:
- Ctrl+U opens a big window and the -bad- reflex is to close it... and close MP with it :-( The preious little window seemed me more ergonomic)
- no convert single file when right-clicking. Too bad.

Yes, can confirm this behaviour:
- Ctrl-U opens the batch-conversion as a tab of the main-program, same size as the main-program.
- open the conversion with the mouse opens the converter as a "standalone, modeless" window.

Bug or feature?

:o Ctrl is used to open an experimental batch convert as a tab.... So yes, if you use the shortcut, you have a tab... Perhaps it's better to use another key like shift

I am the one who originally requested the tabbed Batch convert, and I really like it!

However, tab should not be the default mode for Batch (or at least not yet!)... so, [Shift]+"U" has my support.

(Or any other convenient/available hotkey.)

I means Shift + batch convert to start it as tab :)
