View

 

This determines how files are shown in the File Open Container.

 

Quick Switches to Quick mode. In quick mode, PMView does not scan the file for information. Only the information returned by the operating system is used. This is fast, but only filenames, sizes, dates, and times can be loaded in this way.

 

Text PMView will display filenames only.

 

Thumbnail PMView will display thumbnails for each file.

 

Non-text Files are shown as icons (or thumbnails) without any text (filename) displayed.

 

Non-grid Files are displayed with filenames under their icons (or thumbnails). Files are "packed" as closely as their filename texts allow. (Filenames are displayed in full).

 

Grid Files are displayed with filenames under their icons (or thumbnails). Files are aligned in a fixed grid pattern. Only the first line of a filename is displayed and if the filename is wider than the thumbnail, it is truncated. The truncation is shown with an ellipsis mark (...).

 

Multiple column Files are displayed in a list layout with multiple columns.

 

Single column Files are displayed in a list layout with only one column.

 

Detail All available information is displayed for each file.

 

Hidden Files If set, PMView will show files that have the HIDDEN system attribute set. If not set, PMView will not show files that are hidden.

 

Error Marker If set, PMView will color the background red for potentially corrupt files. Potentially corrupt files are files for which the decoding was not free from warnings or errors. For instance only the last line or pixel (!) of the image may be corrupt. Such a defect is hard or impossible to notice just by looking at the thumbnail. The red background helps you spot corrupt files more easily. Any file with a red frame will also cause an error message in PMView's status bar when loaded.

 

Info Tips If set, PMView will pop up a file info tip window when the mouse is moved on top of a file. If not set, the tip info will not appear.
