Default layout not identifiable

Post by helmut »

XnView MP offers a lot of configuration and settings. From what I can see, unexperienced users can ruin their configuration pretty easily and quickly. If possible, this should be avoided and if it does happen, users should have hints to get their configuration back on track. Below is a suggestion to turn this current disadvantage into an advantage for all users.

Current beviour:
In XnView MP 1.00 there are various layouts available (menu "View > Layout"). Currently it is not clear, which layout is the default layout.

Suggestion:
Default layout, i.e. the layout which is standard when starting XnView for the very first time, should be recognizable in the menus and choosable.

Right. But why is "Default layout" not in View > Layout? And why not just add it?
