Compare Window: Get Out the best file

Post by m.Th. »

Please add some buttons in the Compare Window on the viewport's toolbar to allow getting out the chosen file. In fact it needs three buttons: Export (which is the classical export engine from the main menu), Open file in the new tab and, also, Open file With the associated program/editor/Alt+1 programs. Something like this:
Compare Window.png
It will streamline the workflow even further giving a powerful way out from the Compare window, beyond the on-catalog management capabilities.

Normally it should be easy because all the code is in place, either in the right-click menu in the Thumbs pane or in the Main Menu (the Export engine)
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

...or perhaps is better to put it in the Right-Click menu exactly like in the Thumbs Pane?

Perhaps then Pierre will have the possibility to reuse entirely the engine from there (including the code which adds the Registered programs to the right-click menu)

Thanks a lot for fixing the Issue 2 (it was a must) but ISTM that Issue 2 does NOT have any connection with my posts above.

Can you have a look again?

Perhaps the "Open with" list could include "Open in new tab" as well...
