OH MAN you are the best Pierre I really want to move to your app so bad I can taste it. I am just waiting for this part. Please post back and let me know if it is added :)

I know you show what you updated in the app but not sure how this will be worded :) so I don't want to miss it

thanks

When a copy or move file operation is about to overwrite a file this feature will display a thumb of both images and prompting if it should overwrite.

So simple when you know :)

Thank you, Lostclown, for the explanation, now it is clear to me (and other users). Before overwriting a file, it's really helpful to give the user some extra info or even a picture at hand so that he/she can decide. Apart from the preview other image info like image width/height could be also helpful.

Yes this sounds great, ACDsee does size and preview thumbnail but more info would be cool. I guess ones that are important :)

I know that Pierre will make it a better feature then ACDsee or Pierre and his team. Not sure who is doing the development.

Sorry I didn't give full details of what I was looking for but I figured that the developer would understand what I was talking about.

Can't wait for this feature so I can FINALLY DUMP ACDsee :P :P :P

OH MAN :( I know it must be alot to add. If and when you add it what do you think you will note the feature as ???? So I don't have to ask. Not sure if there is a technical name for this or not :)

The preview thumbnails did not show up for me when using drag-and-drop to copy or move files in RC3.
It just shows a Confirm File Replace dialog as in previous versions.
What am I doing wrong here :??
