Does 'Use only one tab' express that? And if so, is it clearer?
From what I can see in XnView Classic this setting is supposed to affect the Start-up and Drag&Drop to XnView in View mode, only. The current translation in XnView Classic describes pretty much what this setting does:
"Open only one view for multiple files (startup & drag-drop)".
The addition "(Startup & Drag&Drop)" is very essential, so I'd suggest to rename the setting to "Startup & Drag&Drop: Open only one view for multiple files"
Instead of "view" we discussed using the term "tab", but "view" is the term used for an image opened in XnView in a tab for viewing. And the setting category is named "View". So I'd stick to the term "View".
Below some more comments/suggestions that refer to XnView MP 0.83:
DlgConvertClass: Actions (is obsolete and can be removed because it's replaced by "Actions [1/1]" for example)
The Source folder of the files to be transferred.
The internal folder structure will be flattered.
The source folder of the files to be transferred.
The internal folder structure will be flattened (typo)
Info Exif: Subject distance (m) --> Subject distance [m] (units should be in square brackets)
MenuBrowser: Thumbnails + Filename --> Thumbnails + Filenames(just like in XnView Classic)
MenuBrowser: Icon --> Icons(just like in XnView Classic and Windows Explorer)

“Eyedropper” is the term used in everything from Adobe's Illustrator + Photoshop + Fireworks to Corel's Suite (Draw & Photo-Paint) + Paint Shop Pro + PhotoImpact (and MS Office + OpenOffice + LibreOffice).
Thank you for the various links, XnTriq. As written before, the naming for this tool is inconsistent throughout graphic tools: GIMP, MS Paint, Paint.NET, Inkscape, and probably more use "Color picker" while other graphic tools use "Eyedropper". And in the manuals/documentation the terms aren't used consistently either. All in all "Eyedropper" is more precise and differentiates from the "Color picker" dialog that allows for picking a color from a predefined sample palette or spectrum.
In the Draw tool of XnView I'd go for "Pick color from image". This is both a clear and easy to understand tooltip and fits to the imperative used for the other tooltips ("Add text", "Select", "Undo", ...). Sure enough "Eyedropper" or "Eyedropper Tool" are also fine.

Given the circumstances you mentioned (“Add”, “Select”, etc.), I would also prefer "Pick color from image" as tooltip for the eyedropper button.
