Contact sheet - Open created sheets

Post by HanVroon » Wed Mar 29, 2017 7:30 am

Hi Pierre and others

In Classic the contact sheet pages would open in new tabs and no files would be created unless you would manually save them.
In MP files are created per sheet, and they have to be manually opened after creation. That's absolutely OK, MP is not always a copy of Classic.
I know that there is a preview now (not in Classic), but wouldn't it be nice to have an option "Open sheet(s) after creation"? I mention sheet(s) instead of sheet, depending if there will be more than one sheet created.

Best regards,

This is a common feature in many programs which we also have in Create Archive and Batch Convert (open Explorer after...).

It would be good to have it here also.

+1 Consistent and unified behaviour for all Create... tools would be a good thing which I much support.
