Folders, Thumbnails, Preview in a row from left to right?

Post by hsg »

How would I do that? My screen is large but not high, so I would like to have it all from top to bottom, first the folder tree, then the thumbnails (just 3 or 4 columns), then the preview (as large as possible).

I suppose I can not have the preview in some independent viewer window?

I cannot believe that any available layout just puts any two of the three on top of each other, and fiddling around with "Layout - Free" didn't gave me the desired result either.

And, is there really no help file, or am I just too dumb to find it?

Thank you very much!

Thank you very much, Pierre!

I see now that I overlooked a very visible setting. I had tried some of the View-Layout settings, but then had given up, not realizing that 7 and 8 are indeed what I want: I had thought, from the mini symbols, that they represented an even less useful layout, with FOUR different panes each.

I'm very sorry for having bothered you with something so obvious to discover by myself,

and thank you very much for your very kindly answering my dumb question in spite of this!
