General - group items of Insert ⯈ menu

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.4.5 64bit
Windows11 (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


General
'Insert' ⯈ menu (eg in Settings>View>Info tab) has a lot of ungrouped items

Suggestion A
group 'Insert' ⯈ menu
there is nothing bad 3 level menus when used for grouping
- menu will look cleaner
- it allows to navigate easier as menu will not be polluted with different UOMs

(blue - modified items)

ps. similar can be done with EXIF - Image menu, but I'm not ready for this yet.


Suggestion B
unify progressive disclosure buttons to ⯈ icon, as there are 3 ways to display it right now

in:
- Slideshow (settings tab)
- Contact sheet (settings tab)
- maybe somewhere else

I've tried to not have 3 levels, for me 3 levels are not clear but perhaps i'm wrong :)

i would not use 3 level for something like site navigation dropdowns or often-use-items,
but here its fine as it provides more benefit (cleaner menu) than harm
