Formats - add separator after most used formats

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.6.1 64bit
Windows11 (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


Formats dropdown
it is does not look nice when there are 2 lists joined togeter without any delimiter

Suggestion
add separator after most used formats
(shows only if ☑ 'Show most used format at begining' in Settings > Formats > Saving)

are you sure?

there is special function available:
QComboBox::insertSeparator
https://www.mimec.org/blog/qcombobox-with-separator wrote:In version 4.4 of Qt a long awaited feature was added to the QComboBox widget. It is now possible to create separator items, which are drawn as thin, gray lines and cannot be selected. Before 4.4 it was necessary to create a custom item delegate, and also to add a few hacks in order to correctly calculate the height of the popup list and to make it impossible to select the separator using up and down arrow keys. Now we can simply use the insertSeparator method.

example:
