Req: Separate label definitions for folder thumbs

Post by JohnFredC » Thu Feb 15, 2007 7:40 pm

Currently I am very pleased with XnView's ability to define custom labels for thumbnails. However, I customarily also display the folders in thumbnail view. The labels for the folders are mostly empty and hence not very useful.

Please enable users to define labels for the folder thumbs that are different from the labels used for images/files.

Useful fields would be:
  • Number of files in folder
    Number of files including subfolders
    Number of image files in folder
    Number of image files including subfolders
    Number of subfolders
    Size of folder contents
    Size of folder contents including subfolders
etc.

These values should be calculated and displayed in the background so that XnView does not hesitate while navigating the folder hierarchy.

This option would be very useful. There are many similar requests, but in Thumbnails view it's probably not easy to implement such a feature. In Thumbnails & Labels view it might be easier to implement. If not possible, what about just automatically display few of these labels, for example:

Number of image files including subfolders
Number of files including subfolders
Number of subfolders

Thanks.
