lock "Info-tab-bar" (file, exif, xmp, iptc, gps)

Post by mokati »

Hello,

i want to see at the info-window ever the same tab-bar (eg. iptc-bar)

Problem:
i have a lot of pictures; some with gps, some iptc, some pictures without any informations.
when i switch from a piture without informations to a picture with all info's
the tab-bar is reset to the first one (file-information).
but i want to see ever e.g. iptc.
and expect to see it ;)


proposal:
to lock the aktual selected tab-bar.
(see yellow text in picture)

so, based on your picture, what do you expect when you select a file without IPTC-IIM, an empty tab?

as for me, no checkbox is required
app could remember last manually selected tab and reselect it if available, if not available - current behavior

if a file is without IPTC-IIM is selected, it should be open the standard tab (file-information).
If I switch to another image with an IPTC entry, the tab I prefer should be displayed again.

I agree this funktionality, but at the aktual Version 1.63 it doesn't work.

proposal - update:
checkbox with label: "remember selectet tab"

I often look for some missing informations (iptc city, xmp:comment) in xmp or iptc tabs, by quick scrolling through the files with the > key.
With the current behaviour, it's easy
Sometimes iptc city is missing, sometimes iptc tab is empty, I can quickly check this ...
