App UI - rework Layout functionality

Post by user0 »

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


General
Layout functionality spread across menus, which is inconvenient

Suggestion
rework Layout
  • General
    • add new Workspace group (via menu or right-aligned button)
      to accommodate all UI related settings:
      - from Viewer
      -- View menu: ui settings
      - from Browser
      -- View menu: ui settings and Layout group
      -- Toolbar: Layout button
    • Custom Layouts
      - saves settings for Browser and Viewer, both under single name
      - saves state/positions of Titlebar/Tabs/Toolbars/etc (as it already does)
  • A
    like in Davinci Resolve
    - multiple dialogs to manage custom Layouts
    - maybe add functionlity to export/import as .presets
  • B
    like in Adobe apps
    - single dialog to manage custom Layouts
    - maybe add 'New Layout' button on root level like in Illustrator for better UX
