Settings - formats - rework Saving/Read/Write tabs

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.4.0 64bit
Windows10 64bit (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


Settings - Formats (Saving Read Write tabs)
rework Formats group to enhance UI/UX

Suggestion

It is better to use list/table control rather than tabs for formats' settings.
So I made few mockups from simple to complex:

A
(same as in XnView Classic)
  • Saving tab - no changes
  • Read Write tabs - change format tabs to list
B
  • Saving tab - minor changes
    - add Gear(or Wrench) icon to indicate that format has Options(settings)
  • Read Write tabs
    - move to Saving tab

C
  • Saving tab - most changes
    - add Read column - just to show supported formats and separate Read/Write logic
    - add Write column - old Saving checkboxes
    - add Gear(or Wrench) icon to indicate that format has Options(settings)
    - add 'Show all graphic formats checkbox' from General > General tab
    - move 'Show most used formats on top of formats list in 'Save as..' dialog' to General > File operations
    - (optional) add Filter
  • Read Write tabs
    - move to Saving tab
