Req: Compare Panels in Tabs

Post by JohnFredC »

Currently the Compare panel appears in a modal window. Please enable a mode that places the Compare panel in a "normal" tab. Also, it would be great if I could have multiple Compares open at the same time. Placing each new Compare in a new tab would enable that.

The tab name could be something like this:

"Compare n images"

...where "n" is the number of images in the comparision.

Or perhaps:

"Compare: n"

...where "n" is a sequential number making the tab name unique.

A new tab, better than dialog? You are perhaps right...

Yes, a new tab with the Compare panel inside it. That would allow the comparison to persist while I do something else in XnView.

Perhaps it would be a new "type" of tab. XnView would then have Browser, Image, and (hopefully) Compare tabs. Multiple Compare tabs would be incredibly useful for me.

I may have requested this before but without sufficient descriptive clarity.
